Notes

Grant's getaway vehicle, part of his escape route. Bond and Tatiana uses the car and route from the train. They are attacked by a SPECTRE helicopter, but Bond manage to shoot it down, and the car brings them to the next step of the route, a boat.

This model is next generation of the popular pickups under the brand of Chevrolet, kode named C10. Till 1966 Chevrolet produced lot of versions of this small business truck, including even 4x4 fully closed vans for all terrain purposes.

Most popular off course was the pickup version, still liked by the hot rod enthousiasts or classic car maniacs, especially thanks to the characteristic hood, that stretched across the full width of the truck, giving its face eyebrows above the headlights, which were set into the ends of the grille. The eyebrows would be trimmed back over the years, but will be kept till next generation
