According this previous discussion /vehicle_173676-Ford-Fairlane-58E-1961.html
DynaMike wrote I didn't check the production numbers, but indeed my book "50 years of American automobiles, from 1939" (Publications International, 1989) also mentionsa production of 303 Custom 300s, and 96.602 Fairlanes, and 98.917 Fairlane 500s. Probably the Customm 300 had even less chrome, and this will be more likely to be a Fairlane [58E].

58Roadmaster wrote Pilou on this page states there were no "Customs" in 1961, though I don't know if that also means "Custom 300's." I know that in 1960, there was a Custom 300 option for Fairlane fordor and tudor sedans that deleted a few standard features and dropped the price about 30 dollars. Perhaps something similar was done in model year 1961.

So even this car is a Fairlane, though it could be part of that 303, as it appears to have been built for the US Government.

Mayberry squad car #2. BTW I propose upgrading this one to four stars. It had a lot of screen time and a lot of memorable moments, from high speed pursuits to sheltering Andy and Barney from gunfire, to the hilarious time Barney used it to show a pretty woman to the post office (ran lights and siren as he made a U-turn, it was across the street).
