The Truck Scene was composed of 76 separate shots. Shooting was divided up according to whether or not the truck was being pushed or pulled by another vehicle. Why? This is because the truck had no engine. The truck used, a '64 Ford, was donated free of charge by a tenant in one of the cottages behind Eric's house, because it was broken. The boys removed the engine, spray painted it army-green, built a wooden frame for the back and covered it with canvas. When it came time to shoot, they either towed the truck from the front, or pushed it from behind with another vehicle, depending on the angle of the shot. A giveaway to this is a shot taken underneath the truck, when Indy (Chris) is dragging behind the truck, it can be seen that the truck has no axle connecting the front and back wheels. See more
