Four versions of the 1968 Plymouth Fury 4-door (including NYPD and Mayberry PD), two 1968 Dodge Phoenix 4-door sedans, and three 1954 Packard Junior Henney Ambulances. The fire ambulance replicates an actual vehicle so I've ordered one. But the NYPD Plymouth (in the old green-white-black scheme) is sure tempting.

43033001

I checked IMCDB.com and could only find a '68 Dodge police car for Mayberry RFD - no '68 Plymouth.

@moe-parr I'm only repeating what I read.

A '68 Plymouth Fury police car from Mayberry?   I'd be a little cautious here.  I've seen Andy Griffith's car described as a '62, '63, '64, and even one '65, but it's always a Ford.  I still enjoy that show now and then.   My small home town had a '55 Chevy!

@d-m-holcombe True, for the early Andy Griffith show, but the Mayberry RFD show began in 1968. Those Fords were long in the tooth by then. As I said, I could only find a '68 Dodge.

There's at least one NYPD '68 Plymouth in the 1973 movie "The Seven-Ups". Here's the IMCDB page:

Here's the chase scene in its entirety:

Cool movie. I remember seeing it first run as a 12 year old.

1973 movie "The Seven-Ups"

Did you know it was Bill Hickman driving the '73 Pontiac Grand Ville that was being chased by Roy Scheider in the '73 Pontiac Ventura.

Yup, the same Bill Hickman that drove the '68 Dodge Charger in the movie Bullitt.

I did! Here's Bill doing a 1973 Pontiac promotional video:

(that YouTube channel is loaded with the type of car videos I just love to watch)

Bill was a friend of James Dean. On the day of Deans accident, Bill was driving Jimmy's Country Squire. He was just a few minutes behind the Porsche.

Sept55

 Note the empty trailer the Porsche was usually carried on.
