Duel is on METV tonight
The car driven by Mann is a red Plymouth Valiant
, although three cars were used in the actual production of the movie.
The original release of Duel
featured a 1970 model with a 318 V-8 engine
and "Plymouth" spelled out in block letters across the hood (which was covered with aluminum foil to mask the "Plymouth" name from view), as well as trunk lid treatment characteristic of the 1970 model; a 1971 model with a 225 Slant Six
was also used.
