    Screen shot from 1969 movie.

    There are a couple of comments and there seems to be a debate as to the year. First guy says it's a 63 Fury (it's not) second guy says it's a 64 Belvedere sighting the side trim.

    While it does look like 64 Belvedere trim, the front part of the fender looks squared off, not pointy. I think it's a 64 Dodge wagon.

    What do you think?

    The front fender model script looks too short for Belvedere. I think you're right.

    Its a 64 Belvedere, look at the fender trim

    Here is a 64 Dodge

    See how the Dodge has the Scalloped trim and the Belvedere doesnt. Antenna is also on the pass fender on a Belvedere and on the drivers fender on a Dodge, as well as the Belvedere also haveing a hood ornament vs the Dodge without.

    Nice Wagon! I like it.

    I have a 64 Fury, the trim is different, more of a spear.

    Look at how the front fender comes to a point. The one from the movie looks squared of, as does the trim, more like a 64 Dodge Polara.

    1964 Dodge Cononet 440 wagon (I made a previous post on this wagon)

    Although the Dodge is the deluxe model with the extra chrome trim, I thiink we can rule it out as being the same as the movie car.

    In my opinion, there is a possibility that the car in the movie is actually a 1965 Dodge Coronet 330 wagon (3 series available - Coronet / Coronet 330 / Coronet 440 ). I was unable to find an image of a '330', but here is a 440 --

    The shape of the taillights seems to match, and I think it's possible that the '330' trim matched that on the movie car.
