Her Alibi, with Tom Selleck.
He had a killer Suburban, just a glimpse at about :40 in the trailer.

I think the one he's referring to is from the first movie. It's a 1963 J-10 Gladiator thriftside.

I know what he was referring to but arcountryboy (who txchainsawgogi was responding to) was talking about the Jimmy.  It was in the first Tremors movie as well.  By far the coolest truck, owned by the gun-loving couple (Michael Gross and Reba McEntire).

i know its a old tv series not a movie  but  walker texas ranger and  in the heat of the night  i think its called. that older cop show.  in both of those tv shows, there is a hugeeee amount of 73-87 trucks, burbans, blazers.  i love it. normally background vehicles or sometimes the main cast drives them.

There's one at the beginning of "Radio" period correct too and i think it reappears throughout the movie.

Radio is free on comcast right now, i would definitely recommend watching it if you have time.

Just saw a few movies recently:

X-Men Origins Wolverine - There is a prominent 75 squarebody:



Saw a few in Super 8, but that whole movie is littered with classic cars and trucks, it is hard to nail each appearance down.

My wife loves Varsity Blues and she always says my truck looks like the one in the movie:



Though thats a stretch as mine is an 85 and not lifted, but hey.
