Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 loved this series
29 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Like others on this forum, I could not believe they canceled it.

Rod Taylor was great as a soldier of fortune around the turn of the century. Even though there was a lot of hunky beefcake for the ladies, this really was a man's show. The pairing of Rod Taylor and Dennis Cole was well-played. Rugged guy and pretty boy who both knew their stuff.

The pilot, "Powderkeg," was one of the best episodes of t.v. I have ever seen.

The series was my introduction to the Stutz-Bearcat and I've wanted one ever since. What a piece of machinery!

I'd love to see them bring the series back for another run - maybe the Hallmark channel on Saturday afternoons would be a fitting place and time.
