Default Postal Scrambler in new movie The Frozen Ground

AK-RWC of the CJ-8.com or the Scrambler forum as it's called spotted this in the new movie The Frozen Ground. It is an Independent film starring Nicholas Cage, John Cusack, and Vanessa Hudgens. This is based on a true story from 1983 and is set in Alaska. The Postal used was the restored one from MATI (Museum of Alaskan transportation) and has a 4 second spot. Here is a screen grab.

A friend of mine had one of those in Kasilof. It was pretty cool. It had one big swinging door in the back, and the hardtop and inside was all foamed at once. It was an automatic with floor shift, IIRC. It had the world cab doors too.

When I was in Alaska last summer I saw one real nice one, and one I saw several times driving around Anchorage being used as a woods hauler with the top cut off behind the driver (gasp!) So there are no more than 229 left
