Classic Car TV Stars: From the days when the Big Three ruled TV

Viewed through the lens of the passage of 40 or 50 years, our favorite classic TV shows seem to have been full of great classic cars. Of course, they were all just new cars then and their presence on our favorite shows was no accident. It was the dawn of the product-placement era, and cars were by far the choicest products to embed in shows like “Green Acres” and “Bewitched.” In those days, the Big Three got near-exclusive sponsorships on the shows plus a credit at the end. Here are some of our favorite shows and the brand of cars they featured:

  1. “The Rockford Files”: One of the last great private-eye shows, former big-screen star James Garner played slick Jim Rockford to perfection. And while Rockford almost never used a gun, he did use a gold Pontiac Firebird on a regular basis. Frequent continuity errors meant that Rockford could be seen driving several different years of mid-’70s Firebirds in one scene.
  2. “Green Acres”: One of the trio of CBS’s hit “rural shows,” along with “Petticoat Junction” and “The Beverly Hillbillies,” “Green Acres” was a Ford show, and the cars that received most of the screen time were a series of 1965-67 Lincoln Continental convertibles driven by cranky Oliver Douglas (played by Eddie Albert). Oliver’s Continentals get our vote as the most stylish and elegant star cars on classic television.
  3. “Charlie’s Angels”: Every adolescent boy’s favorite show was also a Ford show for most of its run. Two of the Angels drove a Mustang II — Farrah Fawcett’s character, Jill, drove what passed for a Cobra in those days — and ironically, the brainy Angel, Sabrina, actually drove a Pinto.
  4. “The Beverly Hillbillies”: The Hillbillies was a comparatively rare Mopar show —The Chrysler Corporation supplied the vehicles. The snobby Drysdales, a wealthy banking family, could usually be seen in a top-of-the-line Imperial, and Milburn Drysdale’s long-suffering assistant, Jane Hathaway, usually drove a Dodge Coronet or a Plymouth Fury convertible.
  5. “Bewitched”: For most of its run, “Bewitched” was proudly pro-Chevy, with tons of CamarosCaprices and even Corvairs appearing over the show’s long run. But the guy with the wife who could twitch her nose and conjure up any car he wanted rarely had the coolest ride on the show. Nope, it was Darrin Stephens’ boss, Larry Tate, who often showed up in a new Corvette convertible.

    What about Studebakers in the Mr. ED show? Studebaker was the sponsor from '61 through '64 and several Studes appeared in the show during those years. Ford sponsored the show in '65 after Studebaker ceased production in the US.

    Remember the Brady Bunch that had the "family car" Dodge (?) station Wagon and always had a second car that was a convertible, from a Plymoth Fury then a Challenger then switched loyalty to a Chevy Caprice that Marcia and Greg had a driving competion in.

    As I recall, before achieving success in his PI business, Rockford drove an MG Midget (AH Sprite) in some of the early episodes. Another contemporary PI, "Harry O" (David Jansen) also drove a Spridget.

    I recall seeing an episode of "The Rookies" where the police car changed makes and whether it had a light bar, or rotating stobres or flashing lights on the roof - all in one "drive"! Talk about continuity troubles!

    What about Mannix? Joe Mannix played by Mike Connors drove several cars in the first season but starting in Season 2, he drove a Dodge Dart GTS 340 convertible Mopar designed by George Barris. Then between 1970 - 73 Mannix drove the E body Cuda 340 Convertibles. In 1974 he drove a '74 Dodge Challenger and finally ending the show in 1975 in a Chevy Camaro LT. But I mostly remember the Dart and Cuda as the coolest cars he drove.

    The Rockford Files is still one of my favorite shows and I have the series on DVD. James Garner was remarkable as Jim Rockford, using humor as well as bravado to bring us the most unique detective since Colombo. The Firebird Esprit's used during filming of this series have become iconic. I begged my parents to buy a Firebird in 75 when I got my learners permit. They actually went to a Pontiac dealership, took one look at the two door, long hood performance based hardtop and immediately went out and bought a VW Dasher based Audi 4dr. I was bummed but spent the next 3 years thrashing that Audi to death, even reenacting the classic "Rockford turn", a 180 degree reverse slide turn. Please do not count out the "Green Hornet" Black Beauty's or the "Monkeemobile's" created by famed and recently passed builder Dan Jeffries.

    An interesting quirk of Green Acres cars, the models of some of the cars, were sometimes Mercurys altered to look like Lincoln's and some of the door and windshield pillars were cut to clear an area for camera shots of Eddie Albert at the wheel.

    I recall a show, I think it was call Dan Tanner. It was a pivate eye show in the late 60's or early 70's. The main actor had a T bird (not sure of the year, maybe late 50's--it was a 2 seater). The garage was opened to the main floor of the house.So all he needed to do was slide down a pole and jump in the car.

    And of course let's not forget the '55 Buick state patrol car driven by Broderick Crawford in "Highway Patrol" or the '59 Chevy sedans driven by Victor Jourie and his fellow actors in "The Detectives", or the various Studebaker Larks driven by Wilbur in "Mr. Ed". Mannix drove a Barracuda convertible, Dan Tanna drove a red '56 T-bird in "Vegas." Perry Mason was fond of Cadillacs and Sheriff Andy drove various Ford Galaxie sedans.

    Holy cow, you barely scratched the surface of the cars that were the stars of TV shows. The list is nearly endless and you managed to describe probably the most obscure of the TV show star cars. Lets's start with perhaps the most famous and most copied; yes I'm referring to THE General, 1969 Dodge Charger, then there's Starsky and Hutch's red Gran Torino, George Barris's Monkees stretch Pontiac GTO convertible, Nash Bridges' "curious yellow" Hemi-Cuda convertible, Dan Tanna's cherry red '57 Thunderbird from Vegas, and very recently Michael Weston's black Dodge Charger on Burn Notice. I know there are dozens more, but like old movie stars I have to ask: "Where are they now?"

    The detectives on 'Naked City' always drove unmarked Pontiac sedans. Major Nelson ('I Dream of Jeannie') always drove a GTO, and Nash Bridges was always seen in his ersatz Hemi Cuda.

    I own a yellow 62 Cadillac convertible. The previous owner was in Surprise Arizona and previous to that the car was registered in San Diego. I have tried to explore it's title history with the California DMV but they said they have no records back that far. I also have a memory of a yellow Caddy convertible in Doris Days', Please Don't Eat the Daisies. Is there any record of cars that appeared in movies? It is probably a long shot but I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

    Some of my favorites were the Sunbeam Tiger in "get Smart", the Lotus seven in "The prisoner" ( a rather obscure TV series), Inspector Morris' Jag, An episode of Beverly Hillbillies did have an MGA in it ( notice a trend ? ) Also, most of Perry Mason's cars were Fords however Paul Drake occasionally drove a Corvette

    Back in the day the Big 3 were all that we knew in the automotive world. Yes there were Ferraris and Porches' but the Japanese cars had yet to hit the scene in any kind of significant way. I think Hawaii 50 was also an all Ford deal.

    I like the TV shows like Perry Mason,Adam 12,and Kojak. Perry always drove a Lincoln or on even rarer occasions had a 58 Cadillac. They were always convertibles and his private eye investigator had a cool Thunderbird,always a convertible. Adam 12 has some really cool Chrysler carson their episodes. Kojak depicts a lot of great 70's era cars in their adventures too. I love watching these programs and seeing all the great cars we drove back then. Lots of fun to guess the makes and models of the cameo appearances as well. Lots of cool stuff!

    I can appreciate some of your choices but you definitely missed number 1. Get out the Perry Mason episodes and check out every awesome car from the 50's early 60's. I spotted a one of a kind 58 Pontiac Cheiftan 4 door with tri-power symbols on front fenders. Cadillacs to Lincolns to Corvettes to T-Birds this show had some of the best examples of the real car evolution and showed the best of the best that was offered in those days. One other was I Dream of Jeanie. Pontiac heaven, filmed during the muscle cars prime years of the sixties. These were my two favorites, yah I'm a Pontiac collector.

    I think you've missed some great ones - The FBI exlcusive,y used Fords - every car was a Ford. The series ran from around 1965 to 1974. Others are Cannon, Streets of San Francisco, Adam 12, Police Story, CHIPS, Police Woman - all have great car content.

    Private Investigator Frank Cannon driving the Continental Mark IV's of the 1970's was always a favorite at our house. Bill Bixby The Magician in his white Corvette Coupe and of course the ultimate Mercury Marquis Brougham's of the 60's and the 70's in Hawaii Five-O with Steve McGarrett at the wheel.

    Joe B Illinois May 29, 2013 at 23:18
    I like Adam 12 Officer Pete Malloy's description of the 1967 police unit in the First Episode, really pushing the performance: "This black and white patrol car has an overhead valve V8 engine. It develops 325 horsepower at 4800 RPM's. It accelerates from 0 to 60 in seven seconds; it has a top speed of 120 miles an hour. It's equipped with a multi channeled DFE radio and an electronic siren capable of admitting three variables, wale, yelp, and alert. It also serves as an outside radio speaker and public address system. The automobile has two shotgun racks, one attached to the bottom portion of the front seat, one in the vehicle trunk. Attached to the middle of the dash, illuminated by a single bulb is a hot sheet desk. Fastened to which you will always make sure is the latest one off the teletype before you ever roll." :-)

    Some great old Fords were featured on "The Andy Griffith Show." The town police car was a Galaxie, and one of my favorite episodes was "The Lady Speeder," in which Jean Hagen drove a stunning 1961 T-Bird convertible. I'm also sure that all viewers remember the same 1960 Falcon that used to make its way around downtown streets in the background all the time.

    Looks like the GTO's from Jeanie Beat out route 66 corvettes and even the General Lee By the responses. I remember how the fords on the cop shows like Streets of San Francisco. Lincoln Marks, Cannon drove. The bad guys always drove cheap dodges or biscaynes, and were fast as heck and cornered like sports cars. When the Hero's were thrown out and under their cars on their side with the wheels still turning, undersides were full of rust holes with 4 odd tires, snows on the front with the cords showing. But the bad guys cars burst into flames.

    Growing up, it was Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and the Brady Bunch. As a station wagon guy, I always loved the BBs Chrylser/Plymouth wagons. I preferred Major Healy's Firebird 400 convertible over Major Nelson's GTO ragtop. And, I never understood why old Larry Tate got the Corvette while Darren got the full-size Chevys! As an old fart now, I prefer the full-size car to the 'Vette, so maybe Darren knew what he was doing.

    Thunderbirds ruled my childhood, I was obsessed with them right through the 1970's. In 77 Sunset Strip, I remember a '58 and a '61 convertible Thunderbird driven by Efrem Zimbalist Jr, reinforcing the style and sporty elegance mindset Ford was conjuring in the viewers of that time. That was the coolest show ever. In the Perry Mason series, Paul Drake had a sleek, raven black 1960 t-bird through '62 and I almost forgot the 1964 t-bird ragtop Darren drove for the debut year of Bewitched, until Ford lost the series sponsorship to Chevrolet in '65. The New Perry Mason, while a colossal series flop, sported Monte Markham posessing an elegant, massive, green 1974 thunderbird with a white vinyl top and later, in Charlie's Angels, Bosley, played by David Doyle, drove 2 jade green thunderbirds, a 1977, then a 1978 until the Ford sponsored series ended. It always struck me amusing, how the larger 'birds were used in pursuits, when their now soft suspensions were such horrible handlers!

    What about the Saint's Volvo 1800S or Later AMX. Roger Moore never looked so good! Also the Avengers Bentley and Mrs. Peel's Lotus Elan. Adderly on cbs' late night drove a battered Biscayne then stepped up to a chic '74 Camaro. other car/star shows I can think of are The Prisoner (Mini Moke), UFO (Ed Straker's sleek gold Lincoln-powered "1980's" sports car) ,Fall Guy's GMC pickups and Pontiac TA, Night Heat's Impulse Turbo that made the K-cars palpable. Then there were the A-Team's GMC van, Remington Steele's Auburn and VW Rabbit ragtop. Matt Helm's 911 S and Diamonds' cobra...

    Rockford used a 74 Firebird Esprit in the 1st season and then they modified Formula Firebirds from 75-78.Reason being was they wanted the handling and motor from the Formula with the look of the Esprit.Off came the spoiler and hood scoops and on came the bright trim from the Esprit.Throw in a tan paint job to cut down on the reflections from the lighting while they shot the scenes and there you have it

    One of my all time favorite 80's shows was:"Stingray" The staring Nick Mancuso & filmed some of the episodes were in Vancouver. He drove a 65 Corvette Stingray would only help those in need. He was not interested in payment, just one day he would ask you for a favour, & what ever it was you had to return the favour. He would offer advertise his services as "For barter only /1965 Stingray!" A true Canadian Classic car TV show in deed!

    Steve Douglass actually drove a full size Pontiac wagon on My 3 sons. Robbie was seen driving a mid 60s GTO as well. I also remember the chief on Get Smart driving a 1968 Shelby GT500 convertable in one episode

    What about Lee Majors in The Fall Guy which they used 80's GMC Sierras that were lifted with Roll bars KC lights and the awesome looking brush guard with a Warn Winch and the chrome Wagon Wheels and huge tires. Loved that Truck!!

    Recently, I found Officer Malloy's personal car from the t.v. program 'Adam 12.' The car is a Blue fully loaded '69 Mustang convertible, its still alive and well, but we need to get it certified. Does anybody know how to get a Letter of Authenticity for a car used in a television series? I know that NBC and Universal did 'Adam 12' so maybe contact them? Thanks in advance, Bryan
