The first adaptation of Richard Matheson's 'I am Legend' starring Vincent Price. Was later made into the 'The Omega Man' and more recently 'I Am Legend.'

Car continuity goofs:

Bob Morgan drives the 56 Chevy wagon until about 16 minutes into the film when he is briefly seen driving the 58 Ford wagon that he has not yet acquired. Then reverts to driving the 56 Chevy. At about 34 and 1/2 minutes into the film he drives up to the Institute in the 56 Chevy and the 58 Ford is seen parked in front of the Institute. After the 56 Chevy is destroyed by the vampires, he acquires the 58 Ford from what appears to be a dealership showroom.

The film can currently be seen on You Tube in its entirety.

A neat but very obscure bit of trivia here:

Check out the front license plate on Vincent Price's '56 Chevy wagon; it's a real 1961-tagged California plate, number JST 791. I wondered for years where the Italian film crew might have gotten it; then I saw this photo from the listing for Smog, an Italian film shot in Los Angeles in 1961. Note the license on the back of this '54 Ford:

JST 791. My guess is someone from the crew took the rear plate from this car as a souvenir, and had it on hand for the filming of Last Man.
The rear plate on the wagon is a fake, plus note the Italian plate sticking out underneath it:

My 1st question is, why are all those Italian and other foreign vehicles shown in "Last Man On Earth", if the movie was set in Los Angeles? Seems to me that at the time of the movie, the U.S. Army trucks used to transport dead bodies to the burn pit should have been WWII and Korean War era 2-1/2-ton (deuce-and-a-half) trucks made by Dodge or General Motors (A.M. General), and not FIAT. Second question is why did Vincent Price (as Dr. Robert Morgan) choose a station wagon to transport the dead, instead of a pickup truck? In the closed-in cab of a truck he wouldn't smell the stench of rotten corpses as much, since those would be in the truck's cargo bed, behind the cab.

Good questions, Chevy Man. Richard Matheson used another name in the credits because he was so dissatisfied with the final product.

Well, SN95, looks like we think along the same lines. Despite the bloopers in this movie, though, I still like it, and I'm a big fan of Vincent Price (and Charlton Heston, who starred in "The Omega Man"). If it was me in this situation, though, I'd choose a 4-wheel-drive pickup trick, either a 1/2-ton or a 3/4-ton, with an extended cab and a 6-1/2-foot standard bed; the 4WD would be good for negotiating most surfaces, and the back seat area of the extended cab would be good for stowing bins of wood stakes and a couple of 4-pound hand held sledge hammers for impaling the vampire-zombies with the stakes. I wouldn't choose a bed longer than 6-1/2/feet with an extended cab, though, because even though a long 8-foot bed would carry more bodies to the burn pit, I'd want something that's still reasonably maneuverable, and not got so much wheel base that it'd take half a city block to turn around in case of an emergency. My 2nd choice would be a regular 2-door cab truck, combined with an 8-foot bed; more cargo room for bodies, although less cab room for stake bins. With either cab/bed configuration, there's a compromise for not having a super-long wheel base. I'd still get a 4X4 truck, though.
