Each year of the show they used patrol cars just like the real CHP. 2 door sedans, Buicks, Olds, Mercurys, and my favorites the 57, 58, 59 Dodge Coronet D 500s.

Craft, I've seen one or two very short ones but nothing ending in a crash...not yet. Mostly they catch their guys at roadblocks or by showing up unexpectedly where the bad guy is headed.

Just added images from the following episodes:

Eps. 2.32 through 2.39.

Eps. 4.1, 4.3 and 4.23.

Nearly all Season three eps, except a handful. My recorder didn't catch some of them, the station pre-empted a couple and there were even a few episodes I scanned but didn't find any new cars.

My local station or the THIS network, went out of order at one point and showed a late 1959 episode (4.23, which featured guest stars Robert Conrad and Dyan Cannon) and that enabled me to catch the '59 Dodge used by the HP. So now we apparently have all of the squad car Dodges.

Completed. Special thanks to whichever moderator approved these images so quickly.

Maybe it was in the early stages of being transformed into a hot rod and was pressed into service? Or, it was in a wreck and a poor farmer stripped off the damage and kept driving it? Just a couple of guesses.

This show predates the practice of a car company sponsoring
by providing all the cars used by the major actors on screen.
The writing even avoids mentioning the makes of cars, when
pursuing a suspect. I've read that California Highway Patrol
supplied some of the police cars. When did that force stop
using two door sedans?

here's a challenge:
help me find an Edsel.

Model years 1958 or 1959 only (series ended June 1959, before the 1960 Edsel came out)
Filming would have been during or after September 1957.
Looks like 3.17 was earliest episode using 1958 cars, but they don't always air in order of production.

I'm missing:
3.15 Mother's March
3.21 Revenge (other Revenge title is 4.23 w/Robert Conrad, Dyan Cannon)
3.23 Deaf Mute
4.01 Frightened Witness
4.07 Portrait of Death
4.19 Gem Robbery

Hunting thru the others.

earlier missing episodes:
2.25 Nitro

It's an early one for rear wing shape, before 1957+ 1000 version. I can't tell if original 1949+ [MM] or 52+ [Series II], but may not be separable from this angle without view of grille.

My best guess is a '53 Manhattan, as there doesn't appear to be a taillight extension over the rear fender as with '54-'55 models.

No chrome rear trim below taillights, so probably a lower end model: Standard or DeLuxe.

Here's a clearer shot of the Packard and Kaiser, just as they go to final fade.

Two of my favorites are in the first season:

A great one involves 2 car switches, four 1955 Buick police units (2 unmarked) and helicopter pursuit.
Episode 1.02 starting at 18:44
http://www.imdb.com/video/hulu/vi4105897241/?ref_=tt_wb_hulu_all_0

and another w/ a '55 Plymouth trying to outrun a '55 Buick police unit, each taking tight turns at high speed.

Anybody have an idea what this might be?
Fiat, Toyopet, Hillman, Morris Minor?

Remember these from when I was a kid.

I think it's a Rover 75 [P4], 1954 or thereabouts.

You are exactly right, drooping tail but larger rear window. Could also be a 90, but that's just a bigger engine in the same shell.

Thanks for your help, chris40 & johnfromStaffs.
This car had the little wings on the b-pillar for turn signals, didn't it?

Since we cannot be exact about the car, it is not possible to be certain about the trafficators, but it is possible. They are fitted to my 1953 Bentley, but not in use, since nobody looks for them these days. I have fitted flashing indicators in the front spotlights, and separate units at the rear.

This is a 90, not a 75, but the trafficator on the B-pillar is visible: http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/uploads/cars/rover/3943426.jpg
Trawling Google Images I found a couple with flashing turn signals but I think they were retrofitted.

Ever see a Bentley or Rolls in one of these Highway Patrol episodes?
Would love that -- and being filmed in the LA area, there had to be some around!

Thanks, chris40, for the background and sharp eye. Looks like this li'l Rover won't be getting its own page (tried 3 times) but it's good we can discuss it here.

I believe the MG? opposite Shermat is actually a Singer 1500 Roadster. 2.14 4:02

Tried to open link for pix, but unable. Episode entitled "Armored Car."
Anybody else?

ok, here it is, parked in front of the Four Star Cafe:

Sloping rear and severe front door cutout makes it look like a Singer.
But could it still be an MG of some kind? Or a Morgan?
Defer others on the imports -- I'm pretty weak.

If it's a Singer or Morgan, does it deserve its own page?

It's unmistakeably a Singer Roadster, but which model - 4AB, 4AC or SM1500 - I can't be sure at this distance. 1950-5.
It's too squat for an MG TD (the only possible model with disc wheels) and the hood is too short for a Morgan. (I suspect it's too far away for our admins.)
