As this scene starts, the text “Chicago, Illinois” is shown, but ‘Lou Glutz Motors’ is actually Star Ford, located at 900 South Brand Blvd., Glendale, CA 91204. You can briefly see Star Lincoln-Mercury across the street. The Wagon Queen Family Truckster was built from a Ford Country Squire LTD station wagon by George Barris. George designed the the vehicle to make it as ridiculous as possible, making fun of the large American cars of the time.
