Mercenaries Johnny Reach and Hank Brackett cruise the American Southwest in 1914 in their Stutz Bearcat in search of action and adventure. They often take dangerous assignments for pay; their fee is usually a blank check, and after the mission, they just fill in whatever amount they think the job was worth. Written by

Hollywood car builder/customizer George Barris made two replica 1914 Bearcats for the series. A period TV Guide article said they cost $25,000 for the pair, this at a time when a new Corvette was about $5,000. The cars were full scale metal bodied replicas mounted on custom frames and powered by Ford engines and transmissions (out of (then) late model pickups. For safety they featured four wheel brakes, which were not on a genuine Bearcat. The brass radiator is interchangeable with a genuine Stutz unit. See more »
I totally agree with my other colleagues here on IMDb this was an excellent series that was shot on location and had a hip....Spaghetti Western-type feel to it...and was not given a chance to have a decent run...I mean ME AND THE CHIMP...come on, I would dare say that was to Ted Bessell who starred in the "series" like MY MOTHER THE CAR was to Jerry Van Dyke......anyway the series was brilliant in the casting, Rod Taylor who could do an American accent better than any Aussie today with the possible exception of Guy Pierce who ironically played George in the remake of THE TIME MACHINE....and Dennis Cole who tragically lost his son via an unsolved homicide that occurred I believe in 1991....both worked off each other quite well, a good buddy series that is very little dated save for the score by Hal Hooper which is quite good and upbeat, very 70's sound, similar to a score to a South African pseudo spaghetti western called THREE BULLETS FOR A LONG GUN that was in release near that time.....and yes the Stutz Bearcat, Americas 1st sports car that could reach speeds of 60 miles and hour...I know this would be asking a lot but this series is calling DVD.....D...V....D and since both Rod and Dennis are both alive and doing fairly well, commentary would be nice....anyway this western adventure, RAWHIDE and THE HIGH CHAPPERAL all deserve the DVD treatment
