In “Route 66,” which ran from 1960 to 1964, Milner played Tod Stiles, a restless young man who wandered the country with buddy Buz Murdock (later Lincoln Case) in a Corvette convertible, taking odd jobs and helping local people with their struggles.Inspired by Jack Kerouac’s novel “On the Road,” the show tackled social issues and filmed in locations all over the country, reflecting the rise of American car culture and the interstate highway system.
