Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) is driving it, also seen in his driveway.

Maybe somebody can tell me, but is this the same truck?

If so, we can narrow the thing down to between 1970 and 1972. Maybe even 1970 itself.

I'm pretty sure it's a 1972 F series. All 70-72's have the same aluminum grille shell but the 1970 grille is more like a mesh on the inside than the pockets used in 71 and 72. '71 trucks had 6 pockets on each side and '72 trucks had 4 pockets on each side.

Right, I know this all too well. But the problem here is that I can't see the grille pattern on this truck, because it's pitch black.

Another problem is, I'm not 100% sure this is Clint's character's truck. I didn't see the movie yet, so considering how few of them are still around I can only assume it's his.

i think it should only have 5 stars and the torino should have 3 stars because the torino only gets driven once in the last scene for just a minute while the ford truck is driven multiple times!!!

Four stars is enough for this truck.

I had the pleasure of seeing this truck in person.
Once, while Clint Eastwood was filming a scene in Royal Oak, Michigan:

And once, when I tracked down the owner, Don, here in Michigan:

I spotted it, along with the Civic, at a Monroe MI area used car dealership:

I saw the movie last night. I think this is light enough to list this as 1972 Ford F-100.
