The Valiant in Duel is definitely a '71. Its wheel covers were used in 1971 only. The most positive way of identifying it as a '71 are by the small turn signal indicators mounted on top of both fenders. Chrysler used body-colored indicators in '71 only, all other years had chrome indicators. Certainly, both the wheel covers and the indicators could have been changed on the movie car (or cars), but it seems unlikely that this would have been done.
Carfan is right. The Biscayne wasn't a police car, but rather painted with an exterminating company logo.

explorer4x4 wrote Man! There were LOADS of other cars! The entire first 3 or 4 minutes were nothing but cars! At the diner there was a lot full of cars and then theres the school bus and Chevrolet Biscayne squad car!

That was because he was driving on the freeway. And if I can remember there was one White-Freightliner truck with a reefer.

If these other cars are just background ones seen for ¼ second, it is not especially worth mentionning all of them...

I thought I had started watching one of my favorite movies today. The shots showing the speedo dropping, the temp rising, the oil light flashing, made me say "Duel" immediately. But wait a minute. Who are these two people in the familiar Valiant? And two people in the TRUCK? Well, turns out to be an episode of the Hulk. I've never seen such a use of recycled content. Blew me away. I love that kind of crazy stuff.

Bah il n'y a pas grand chose à comprendre : le film a d'abord été diffusé à la télé. Ce n'est que par après qu'il a été exploité en salles ;)
fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duel_(film)
Quote Duel fait partie de la longue série des films du week-end (movie of the week-end) de la chaîne americaine ABC. C'est donc un film destiné, à l'origine, à la télévision, mais qui, à la suite de son succès, fut rapidement diffusé dans les salles de cinéma aux États-Unis et en Europe.

In one scene there is a passing International Harvester Travelall. The four door version of the Scout.

Can you give more details, i.e. approx time or scene description, so I can try to find it in the movie?

There is a scene when the main character is trying to pass the truck. He is on the wrong side of the road and has to swerve back behind the truck again because the Travelall is coming toward him. In a couple seconds the camera shows the side of the Travelall and then the back as it drives away.

C'est pas justement ça la définition du détournement de propos, se servir d'un bout de phrase pour dire quelque chose de différent ? :p

The first time does I watched this movie was in 1998 (I was 10 yo,and that's the same period of France 98 worldcup)
Stephen Spielberg's first movie, great.
But now all of performers in this movie were died (Dennis Weaver died in 2004)

j'ai revu le film hier a la télé, et j'ai vu qu'il manquait une bonne vingtaine de véhicule, du début du film, lors du départ de Los angeles vers le désert, et d'autre véhicule comme un éconoline ou d'autre camions lors de la scéne du café.

Actually, I thought his character did pretty well under very difficult circumstances and was victorious in the end.

I agree. Plus, that was the character Weaver was playing. If he had been a stronger person, this movie would have ended much sooner.
