Boston Blackie’s Car

Recently we purchased a DVD that had 25 classic mystery movies and TV shows on it. I did a review of the DVD on 5 Buck Review here.

I wanted to find out what kind of car Blackie was driving in the Movie/TV Show Boston Black on the DVD, and started checking out on the Internet by searching and, man, was that something to try to find out.

As a matter of fact, no one seems to really know what it was! And apparently everyone thinks that everyone who would know for sure is now dead.

There certainly is a lot of speculation but no firm answers. I looked at all the type of cars that were suggested and certainly none of those cars (at least in their stock look) fits the bill.

Here is a screenshot of the front of the car:

And here is a screenshot of the car from the rear:

I was wondering if anyone has an idea of what type of car it is, or maybe it was just a custom car made for the show. I have never seen anything close to it (and I looked at half a dozen links from the Google search and nothing really matched it), except maybe in my mind from an old Batman comic. LOL!

    • Yeah, I saw that and in some ways it is similar, but the front is totally not it, and not sure about the suicide doors on the Boston Blackie car.

      But yeah, that’s somewhat close.

  1. You mean that guy could be fibbing? *shock*

    • LOL! Not exactly, but with all the discussion on the web about it over time, he could have laid it to rest at any time if he posted the images of the actual vehicle on some photo site like flickr, photobucket, etc. to prove what he says.

  2. […] Bambi is still trying to find the make and model of Boston Blackie’s car. Anyone know about […]
