If it was filmed in Australia could be a Bedford chassis with local bodywork. Reminds me of Bedford J1 Hawson but it is not likely to be Hawson in Australia.

Any van that had been sold new in Australia would be RHD since traffic drives on the left. I would think that the movie producers shipped this one over from the US -- either that, or they had it converted to LHD, which I imagine would be more expensive than importing something.

The grill is similar to some GMC trucks I've seen from around the late 60's, early 70's.

This is an International CM1300 "Metro".
/vehicle_42370-International-Harvester-CM-1300.html
I have been told that at least in Australia, 'International Harvester' dropped the 'Harvester' part of the name very early on, and were sold as 'International'.
For a lot of movies made out here the cars are converted to look like left hand drives. A company I worked for sold 4 F100's to the company that made the first Punisher movie with Dolph Lundgren in 1988. They converted them to left hand drive by welding a post to the floor with a bicycle chain across to the right hand side so they could be steered from the left. It looked authentic for filming outside the cars.
If anyone has pics from this movie I will identify the cars. They used Australian Valiants for Police cars.

Thanks for clearing up that mystery, valiant1962. Can you name any other films where cars were converted to left-hand drive that way?

I only know they did it for the Punisher. But I am sure that any other films shot in Australia that are supposed to be set in USA could possibly have similar conversions on vehicles that are not seen from inside. Especially if the film company employed the same company to acquire vehicles for the film, and there are not too many film car companies in Australia.
