I was an Action Vehicle Co-ordinator and supplier of cars to many movies in the 1970's to early 2007, when illness (and advancing years!) obliged me to retire
The first film I did was "A Bridge Too Far" followed by "Yanks" with Richard Gere. " Force 10 from Navarrone" "Hanover Street" amongst many.
I had to construct several of the Japanese Army trucks and the Rolls Royce Ghost Armoured Car for "Empire of the Sun"
The principal Staff Car driven by Lee Remick in "Ike" was a Series 14(?) Packard Limousine, painted to look Military, and the Plymouth was a 1946 Plymouth De Luxe Sedan with a very interesting history.
I still have a great affection for ex Military Vehicles and presently giving a Chevrolet G506 the once over prior to showing it later this year.
