Mayberry Replicas

Hello replica owners, and those that enjoy looking at them!

I've created an album of Mayberry Patrol Car Replicas that I think you'll enjoy looking through. (Note: Visit the album to see owner and other information about the cars.)

I'll be adding more photos to the album so if you have a replica upload a photo and I'll add it to the album so others can view it.  I've been tagging the car photos as "patrol car replicas" to make them easier to search for.

Here are a few stories related to the Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous which was held in Bradford, Ohio during the mid 1990's.

We now have the Mayberry Squad Car Nationals (since 2001) where owners of Mayberry replicas can show off their cars.

My squad car was selected as Old Car Weekly's "Car of the Week".  The following article will come out officially on Sunday.

Ken, 

Here's an interesting article on how some folks did it with bicycles.  The Peavey molded plastic PA enclosures are usually really good.  Peavey is known for consistent high quality in musical instruments.  I sell them and recommend them highly.  The sound quality from these speakers would give the highest fidelity for recorded music.  You might mount them in open air (on roof/top of trunk, bumper-level basket, small trailer) or in the trunk (although the sound would be muffled).  The article has a step by step instruction, etc.  It's perhaps just an idea.  Just don't break any Mayberry sound ordinances.  ;-)

Hi Ken,

Depending upon the size/scale of the PA system desired, you could go several ways.  A few of the ones I've installed for my customers have had the discreet components, in a type of customized installation.  While some folks install what amounts to nothing more than a big car stereo speaker system, others have custom-made cabinets (made by the boys down at the lab), usually hidden somewhere in the body, with components used in on-stage PA systems.  The tweeters usually have to be unobstructed.  Depending upon the fidelity desired, you could just use horns mounted on the top, or multi-way enclosures, with fancy-dancy crossovers.  Will you be using this for a microphone and pre-recorded music?  Will Leon be running the sound board again this year?  Best wishes in your endeavor!  Over and Under, Clyde "Barn".

I recently installed a PA system in my squad car, but I am very disappointed in it.  While the siren and other sounds are great, the PA does not have much volume at all.  I want to replace it with something that would really be loud when I play music or speak in parades.  Does anyone have a suggestion as to what unit to purchase and it I could get it.  Thanks so much.

This door decal is one i had made in Richmond Va, (Fastsigns). I took several designs and put them together and it made a nice looking decal. You are welcome to use it, If you do let me know.

I would love to see Mayberry Patrol cars from the different eras of Mayberry.  I know that the show had Fairlanes and Galaxies for the 60's but would love to see a patrol car from the 40's through today.  Love to see a modern Ford Crown Vic or Dodge Charger painted with the Mayberry star on the side.  Problem is, you would probably have to trailer them to events due to it looking like a real patrol car.  Still would be nice to see the evolution of the Mayberry Patrol Car.  I may start doing some in models.  I will post any pictures of ones that I do.

Wasn't the squad car in the first season a ford fairlane?

Hey y'all! I'm not a squad owner yet but I am looking for one. I would like to find one already restored. Anybody know of one that is for sale? If not, where is the best place to find one? I really like the 61-63 galaxie

I just picked up my 1965 Squad Car.  It had an all new black paint job and most of the chrome emblems were replaced.
