Duel is a 1971 television (and later full-length theatrical) thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg in his full-length film directing debut and written by Richard Matheson, based on Matheson's short story of the same name. It stars Dennis Weaver as a terrified motorist stalked on a remote and lonely road by the mostly unseen driver of a mysterious tanker truck.
The Duel Peterbilt Truck and Plymouth car chase and crash
In November of 2009 we purchased the surviving Peterbilt truck and Tank Trailer from the 1971 Film "DUEL" The truck was built for the extension of the film in 1974 and was a stand by truck for Universal to use in the film. We plan on making some more films of this truck and we also have just purchased a Plymouth Valiant to go with the truck! Stay Tuned!!
