Probably a Fairlane as there were more commonly used by fleets. But then again, this is Hollywood.

In that pile I can see a red '61-63 Thunderbird and the white car, judging by the three portholes, possibly a Buick. So back then were parts of New York complete wastlands with junkheaps like these everywhere? Such a waste of good cars. :(

Has this really been listed as a 1970 for over 5 years??
It's a 1971. Changing.

No, it was filmed on location.

Detectives tend to have more upscale cars. For example, LAPD used to issue Mercury Montegos to detectives.

No. That's just a junkyard, such as you'd find anywhere.

@maxman: I think @car nerd meant "this is Hollywood" in the sense of being more glamorous than the real thing.

What's on the dash badge next to "Torino"? A trim level?
