I never saw this film and in fact never heard of it. It was apparently made in 1994 and had a 1959 setting. Probably not too many '41 Champions driving around in '59. Wonder who this one belonged to? Maybe the same car that was in the original "Godfather?"

That's a good flick. Don't remember the Champion, though.

According to a posting on the Internet Movie Car Database, and based on the chrome, the "Godfather" car may not have been a President Custom Land Cruiser rather than a Champion (I have no idea if that's accurate).
