I Love Lucy (1951-1957)
jazzfi UStoo funny... it's a b&w episode so everyone's imagination offers a different color.. i always thought blue & white because I used to own a '55 Chieftain 4-door, but it could really be any color.. a good book about ILL with color photos might offer the truth.. 2013-12-06 20:12

jazzfi US"Pilou" I believe is correct, and actually Lucy mentions in the episode that it is indeed a "1923 Cadillac Touring Car".. 2013-12-06 20:08

62imperial wrote I've seen a color photo taken on the set that shows it was definitely two-tone light and dark green. A white car would probably have been too bright for the way they were filming in black and white (even the appliances in the Ricardos' kitchen were painted light blue rather than white).


Where did you see this color photo?

It is un-restored and original as it was on I Love Lucy, and has photographs and information from the show on display as well. He was so excited to see this original car and it was great that they saved it as a memento of this episode. 2012-01-31 00:28

This car was on auction in 2004, but the colors would have to be reversed. :??:

[Image: pontiac_star_chief.jpg]

"A 1955 Pontiac Star Chief convertible used in several episodes of the show "I Love Lucy" will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson. In the show, the car belonged to Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz), who used it to give driving lessons to his wife, Lucy (Lucille Ball, for those of you only recently emerging from a lifetime spent in a very deep cave). The car later performed on-camera in an episode that saw the Ricardos and their neighbors, the Mertzes -- extra points if you know who played them -- drive cross-country to California."

nzcarnerd NZI first thought this was a WW2 era WL model but some details didn't match. I think it is a Model DL 750cc from about 1929. Needs an expert to confirm. http://motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/classic_bikes/harley_davidson_29dl.jpg

I Love Lucy (1951-1957)
tv boy USEpisode 5.4, "Ricky Sells the Car," is about how Ricky chooses to sell the Pontiac he, Lucy, Fred and Ethel used to drive to California. This leaves Fred and Ethel thinking they're stranded so Fred buys this motorcycle. They show it off briefly before wrecking it off camera. I don't know the year or model but a Lucy fansite says it's a Harley. And it was already old when this episode first aired in the Fall of 1955.

"When Ricky and Lucy Ricardo (Desi Arnaz/Lucille Ball) take a cross country trip from New York to California on episode #110 "California, Here We Come" (January 10, 1955) they drive a red & white 1955 Pontiac convertible passenger car. It had 180 horse power and an automatic transmission."

1953 Studebaker Starlight Regal
I Love Lucy (1951-1957)
tv boy USI think sometimes, film crews will surround their "featured" car with their own, other cars in real traffic, as a form of traffic control, and this Studebaker may have been one of those cars. If that's the case, then this may be an alternate shot of the same car. Note that it has a sedan post:
