My son was recently watching an old rerun of "Sanford and Son" and the very beginning where it shows the credits is a scene with Freds old Ford truck being driven by his son. In that scene for a quick second an old ('60?) Corvair 4 door is going in the opposite direction. It is a fast scene and you have to watch closely to see it. I believe if it is a '60 the car would have been about 10-12 years old then. My wife is the one that saw it.
