I saw this video about Charlotte Stewart, how she became friends with Jim Morrison.
In the video I saw some rare (never seen before?) photos of Jim. Anyone any idea what car he drives here?
That's got to be one rare Dodge Pickup. Precedes the Cameo for sure..
Man, they sure got that car stuck a lot on that trip

I think it's a Mustang...seems like somewhere I've seen footage of him in the desert in it spinning Louie's , it was supposedly abandoned somewhere ?
Thanks for the reply, but I don't think he is driving a Mustang in these photos. The photos of him driving are taken in 1970-1971, and he crashed his Mustang in June 1969.
Morrison was driving a Mustang in the "Riders on the Storm" video, made in 1970 or 1971 (from the "L A Woman" album, released in early 1971).
The Swedish police also had a Ford Woodie? (They still had the left hand traffic in the fifties but all the cars had left hand steering since the mid-forties.)
Those tusk must be 12- 15 feet long!!!!
The "Riders on the Storm" music video isn't an official video, but a fan made. The footage of Jim Morrison in his Mustang is from the movie HWY: An American Pastoral (1969), to be exact, it was filmed between 2-9 April 1969. A few months later Jim crashed his Mustang on Sunset Blvd, LA. (not 100% sure about that)
Remastered footage of HWY: An American Pastoral, used in a documentary of The Doors released in 2009.
So again, he is clearly not driving in his Mustang on these photos.
I can't imagine trying to negotiate any incline change towing this thing...
Unless this was staged....what are the odds....????
Considering the numbers of bugs on the road back then......pretty good odds.
Isn't this just an INSANELY beautiful car? Gary
This is what the car from swi66 photo is. http://www.carstyling.ru/en/car/1948_panhard_dynavia/
