These vehicles at one time had a traditional gasoline-powered engine (hence the jerrycan on both sides and the double exhaust pipe) which seems to have been retrofitted with some type of nuclear turbine system. There will occasionally be a container in the bed, normally a suitcase or a crate of some sort.
They can be found littering the roads and parking lots of the Mojave Wasteland.
- In the Mojave, they all have the same license plate, which is "J4M35M"; in Zion, their plate number is 000 000.
- In New Vegas, similarly to patrol vehicles, they do not explode when shot at.
- The trucks in Zion do not have the nuclear turbine conversion on them, unlike their Mojave and Commonwealth counterparts.
- If any real-life logic is followed, the truck would have had to be retrofitted with a nuclear engine, because it would not be possible (or make much sense) to have a vehicle from the 1950s to be produced with a nuclear motor stock. The same applies to the death car.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The pickup truck that appears in Fallout: New Vegas bears a striking resemblance to the 1950's style Ford F Series, the Chevrolet Advance Design, and the Dodge C Series pickup trucks made shortly after World War II.
- "J4M35M" is leet for "James M", a reference to the Environment Artist James Melilli.
