Question Fans of the original Dukes of hazzard ID a car

On the original Dukes of Hazzard tv show the 'Destruction Derby' episode features two old cars in one scene ramming each other driving along the road.

One is brown and larger the other is blue and smaller what makes and models are they??

I think the brown one might by a Chrysler?

Re: Fans of the original Dukes of hazzard ID a car

Aha, I have that one! It is Season Two, the 19th episode, episode 8 of the second season, "Hazzard Connection"

The blue one is a 1975ish Chevrolet Chevell or could be the Buick or Oldmosbile version of that body style. The Chevelle was changed to that body style in 1974. The brown one is an early 60's Ford. I am not real up on those year Fords. Here's a couple screen captures I just did if anyone can give a better ID.

The blue car is a 1973-75 Chevy Malibu, with the grille wrecked it's hard to say which year for sure. The brown car is a Plymouth and not a Ford, about a 1967-69 I'd say.

A Plymouth? I am ashamed! I'll look into this more. It may be, but earlier than 68-69. In 68 all Mopars had round turn signals on the side to meet the new law requiring side turning indicators. In 69 there were a lot more long, horizontal ones.

You're welcome for the pics.

I still cannot find that exact grill to specify a year for the Malibu.
