Written on the site: Custom Deluxe. I guess it is a 10 after the name?

Yes, a C-10 = 1/2 ton (US), a C-20 = 3/4 ton & C-30 = 1 ton.

1973/1974 C10 based on the grille.

Brand new design at time of this movie.

Indeed, introduced in late 1972 as a 1973 model. The design was revolutionary, not evolutionary, departing from the traditional pickup truck look. They soon become known as the "rounded-line" pickups, due to the steeply raked windshield, sleek sculpted body lines, rounded fender lines, cab and pickup box.

The cab was to too round actually, becoming somewhat of a design flaw. Rain water would run directly into the cab when the doors were opened. This annoyed owners, who would become drenched getting in and out of the truck.

Dealerships would add a polished stainless steel drip rail (rain gutter) around the top of the cab, above the doors to catch and reroute water away from running into the cab. Later GM made the stainless steel drip rails standard on all pickups and utilities.

The truck in the capture does not have the polished stainless steel drip rails.

When I first saw this movie this whole sequence made me sick to my stomach because of smashing up so many classic airplanes. Somehow it matters less when they're cars. (I am reminded of the line from 'Goldeneye': 'Do you wreck every vehicle you get into?' to which Bond shrugs. 'Boys with toys.')

Then I recognised that this 'Piper Cub' is either a dummy or a ready-to-be scrapped, stripped-down hulk. Even the engine is fake. I just don't like what they do to the old DC-3; though that could have been a hulk as well. The wreckage to the Luscombe (or is it a Taylorcraft?) is very real though. ('You're over-revving!')

this C10 has the 1967-72 era full wheel hubcaps with the simulated lugnuts...

I don't think so. Those hubcaps did carry over for the early models.
