tv boy wrote Now the back story:

In three different episodes, Sergeant Carter is seen driving the beautiful Phoenix. In episode 2.13, the classic "Gomer Minds His Sergeant's Car," we find out that Carter loves and babies his car, and is known for it. Then he's called out of town to bring back an AWOL Marine, so Gomer has to drive him to the airport and the car is left in his care. Naturally, the car is promptly stolen, then totalled.

But when I went to pull images from this show and from this episode, I noticed something for the first time ever: just before the car gets smacked with the wrecking ball, it suddenly turns into the lower-trimmed vehicle, the Seneca. It's obvious by the side trim and roof shape, and by the fact Carter's car was a hardtop earlier and this one has sedan posts. (Edit: I just noticed, after seeing these on another computer, they aren't even the same shade of red.) Evidently the producers didn't want to destroy the higher valued Phoenix.

Two doors doesn't always means that must be a coupe /vehicles_make-Dodge_model-Dart+Seneca.html

Not only was it a stand-in, they crushed it twice - note the door frame and windshield are intact in the first still; they cut to a shot of the horrified Gomer, then they cut to the close-up where the door and windshield are now flattened.

I remember this being rather traumatic to watch when I was five years old...

It's still traumatic for me now as an antique car lover!
