The Ark II was built on the chassis of a dump truck. The truck was notorious for constantly breaking down between shots. It was also reportedly hard to operate in crowded areas safely because the placement of the windows was such that the driver of the Ark was unable to see clearly. The other vehicle, the Ark Roamer, was built on a Volkswagen van chassis from a modified "Brubaker Box" kit, and while it ran well, it had a limited range. The Brubaker group built both vehicles for the show. See more »

I saw this series from the age of 8 to nearly eleven years of age. I hated the tortured morality of the dialogue, but loved the 'Logan's Run' aspects.
I left the US before the end of the run, and missed the show on arriving in Australia, as it never screened here. As kid shows go, it didn't have the music of 'Jonny Sokko' or the adventure, dialogue and crisp story lines of the original 'Ultraman.'
The poor production values of the time, poor dialogue, poor action and little adventure was more than made up for by the need to opine for a better world, with better people. It sort of made me want to be a better person.
