Diamonds Are Forever
1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1
Diamonds Are Forever, a James Bond classic featuring Sean Connery, features a red 1971 Ford Mustang. Although the film is riddled with continuity and production errors, a widely praised scene involved a car chase, when Bond’s Mustang briefly balanced on two wheels.
In the original Jurassic Park film in 1993, this Ford Explorer was primarily used to guide tourists through the dinosaur exhibits. It was portrayed as a nifty vehicle, having its own drink tap for the visitors and a self-navigation system.
Thelma and Louise
1966 Ford Thunderbird
Back in the days when Brad Pitt was merely a supporting cast member, this critically acclaimed crime drama film features main characters Thelma and Louise crusing in a 1966 Ford Thunderbird. Whether it was quietly driving to a fishing trip or fleeing from the authorities, the convertible did it all for the movie.
The California Kid
1934 Ford Coupe
Martin Sheen spent one of his earliest roles playing a character with a constant need for speed. This customized Ford Coupe helped him do just that, and may’ve actually outstaged Sheen for the more important part of the movie.
1973 Ford XB Falcon
If you want to avenge the deaths of a fellow rookie officer and your family, you’ll need something fast. In Mad Max, Max does just that.

1968 Ford Mustang GT 390
In a movie that defined Steve McQueen’s public image as a fearless stuntman, Bullit featured what many movie critics considered one of the most excited car chase scenes of all time, which lasted for nearly eleven minutes and peaked at 110 miles per hour. In fact, McQueen not only considered becoming a professional racecar driver, but also took part in a series of Ford Mustang commercials.
1963 Ford Econoline
Of course, the world famous Mystery Machine had to be incorporated into the Scooby Doo movie. Because the film is based off a cartoon, it took a little brainstorming to determine what van would be a good fit for the needs of the production and the visual symmetry with the animation, which ended up being the 1963 Ford Econoline.
Dumb and Dumber
Being a dog groomer may not be the most glamorous job in the world, but it doesn’t mean you can’t roll up in style. The goofy, costumed van driven by co-main character Harry is a Ford 1981 Econoline.
