If you get squeamish about wrecked classic cars, don't look any further!

modell wrote Yes, the car is not featured in the ENTIRE movie. It should stay 4 stars.

The Car is in most of the movie, however, it is not the main character in the movie, therefore it should remain 4 stars. It is a cool car though :D

@wasserspeier: a point of discussion.

Surely, no way in this case: /vehicle_2159-Ford-Mustang-1968.html

But there: /vehicle_85149-Ford-Mustang-1983.html ??

Or there:

It looks like a Granada/Escort/Mazda 626-mutation.

Anyone notice that the car in the scene with the deer is a totally different model? I think it's a 1968 Chrysler Newport with a "gas cap" painted on the quarter panel.

This coupe version shows off the body shape better.

Trivia: In the movie, David Spade says that it has a 440 Sixpack, but when you see the hood open it has a regular 4bbl. air cleaner on it.

I think the main page is missing a car. in the scene where the deer rips through the convertible top and is standing on the trunk it looks to me like they used a 1968 Newport in addition to the 67 Plymouth. . . . .dear god i hope that wasn't a real GTX.

It is most likely a standard Belvedere or Satellite dressed up to look like a GTX based on the images provided above which show standard (not GTX/Satellite) taillights, a standard 120 mph (not GTX) speedometer, a standard (not chrome GTX) fuel cap, and a small 22" radiator where the GTX would have had a 26" standard.

The car does however have GTX emblems on the front fenders, a correct dual snorkel 440 4bbl air cleaner and GTX hood scoops which someone probably added.

I don't see any good shots, but the rear seat is different on a GTX/Satellite too as it has a lowered portion in the center about shoulder height where an emblem for the model would go.

Again, they may have used multiple vehicles. The last time I watched the movie (a long time ago) I thought it changed from a real GTX to the clone about the time they tore the door off at the gas station which seems fitting, but I could be wrong.

The movie doesn't necessarily have to be all about the car for the car to get five stars. "Little Miss Sunshine" isn't a movie about a VW Station Wagon, for instance. It just has to be *a* main character.

I made a video collage of all the scenes with the 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX convertible from Joe Dirt and Tommy Boy. Enjoy.

I am thinking it is the same car in Joe Dirt, there are too many similarities. I also believe the GTX was actually a clone made from a Belvedere or Satellite. I say this because it is missing a few options you would expect to see standard on a GTX (Mopar experts, please advise):
1) 120mph speedometer gauge - see pic (GTX had a standard 150mph speedometer gauge)
2) Column shift (console shift standard on GTX?)
3) Missing chrome brake light bezel (standard on GTX), however these could have been removed.
4) Missing chrome wheel-well trim (pretty sure standard on GTX), however these could have been removed.
5) Bench seat up front (not sure if GTX had standard buckets or not)
6) No competition gas cap and bezel (standard on GTX)

Anyone spot anything else?

the one in Joe Dirt, although it WAS the same year, make, model & trim of car...wasn't convertible, the one in Tommy Boy was a convertible...my dad had a 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner...I've never, EVER seen another 1968 Roadrunner up close...the were really, REALLY powerful, really long & uni-body, they couldn't handle for shit, those things DIDN'T TURN. In my father's words "turning the front wheels in the '68 Roadrunner was as effective as turning the wheels if you were 10,000 feet above ground. I can't believe they found two 1967 GTX's which actually was a big error in Joe Dirt, because he refers to it as a 67 and then a few scenes later as a Roadrunner, and there was no Roadrunner model until 1968

Note that the nice car has non-GTX exhaust tips that go straight back whereas the dirty car has GTX-style angled exhaust tips.

not only the same wheels but the same brand tires? My guess is either Farly or Spade likes '67 GTXs.....and put them in the movie

Tommy Boy used a 1967 Belvedere Convertible - (not a GTX model) - it used to sit in my drive way. The producers were driving by and saw it sitting there. Came in and had a beer with my Dad and left with the car.

I didn't get so upset seeing this car get totaled because when it last appears on screen, it's still repairable. It wasn't totaled beyond repair.
