Anyone ever done the model? You can get AMT's '66 Fairlane, paint it a gold color, add a radio, and there is Sgt. Friday's LAPD undercovercar.Cool

Well...not exactly. The Fairlane used by Friday & Gannon in "Dragnet" had four doors, not two. In addition to the obvious problem of the number of doors, the rear roof line is not the same, either. I am far from an expert on '66 Ford Fairlanes, but I would venture to say that there are even more differences in trim levels, seats, etc.

Other than these things, though, at least you do have a good foundation for a conversion.

I married my wife for her looks, just not the ones she gives me when I bring home new model kits.

Didn't they use a Galaxie, and not a Fairlane?

Thanks for that picture link, hct728. The Galaxie was used as Barney Fife's patrol car.

As usual, the movie car database is invaluable
