My wife was watching the show Mannix the other night, and there were two 69 Chargers shown in the first 15 minutes of the show. She recorded the episode to show it to me,the first one was a red 69 Charger with a black vynal top. The guy drives up to the entrance of a business, and speaks with the Security Guard and then drives away. The car gets some decent screen time, and a good rear end shot of it driving away. Then Mannix is trying to follow a van out of an airport parking lot, when a bronze 69 Charger R / T SE, with a white vynal top and stripe blocks him from persueing the van. There are always cool cars on that show, and most of them are Mopars. The first season he drove a customized Olds Toronado convertible, then he drove 68 and 69 Dart convertibles that were customized by George Barris. For the 70-71 seasons he drove Cuda convertibles, some of which were modified to look like the 72 Cuda for the 72 season. He had a 72 Rallye Challenger with a sunroof for the end of the 72 season, and 73 season, and switched to a Camaro for the 74 season. There were always a lot of other Mopars, mostly cop cars,and bad guys driving Chrysler Imperials. Product placement was a big deal, and Chrysler took full advantage of it. The episode with the Chargers was season 2 episode 22. I am not good at posting pictures from films or television shows, perhaps if someone has time they can post the pictures. It is so cool seeing these cars when they were new,as well as all the other old school cars in the background. It brings me back to the time when I grew up.

I have always liked Mannix, and seeing all the Mopars is a plus. METV was showing some of the later episodes and Joe was driving as Camaro.....just isn't right!

I remember seeing an episode where Mannix is being chased in his 71 Cuda convertible, by a guy in an orange 71 Road Runner. It was really cool to see.

Someone on my thread on For B Bodies only posted the whole episode from You Tube. The red Charger is in the opening scene,and the bronze Charger R/T SE is around the 16 minute mark.

There are so many good Mopars on the Mannix episodes.

Lots of scenes of Imperial Limos, 1968 and before and fuselage models. Even a M/B 600 LWB.

The head villains often drive Imperials. The episode mentioned where the bad guy drives a TorRed '71 Road Runner to chase Mannix.

There are so many '68-'70 B-bodies, cop cars and pedestrian cars. Where are all the '70 Coronet fenders from them today?

A Rolls Royce, a Carousal Red GTO, and lots of others.

There is even a bright green C-body in one episode.

So many great cars in the background shots,

FWIW there is also a Mod Squad episode where a parked Superbird Limelight wing is in a scene.

I had a weird thought after posting the above video............

I wonder if either of those Chargers ended up being Generals 10 yrs later either because of the studio or sheer coincidence?

The thought popped into my head because the first General was made from a gold Charger..... work shruggy

So many cool cars on television,and the manufacturers were all in on supplying vehicles. Chrysler had Mannix ,Adam 12,the Beverly Hillbillies,the Brady Bunch and the Doris Day show,to name a few. Chevrolet had Bewitched,,Pontiac had I dream of Jeanie,Ford had The FBI,Andy Griffith,and Cannon. So many cool cars,on so many cool shows. The shows remind me about how life was back in the day. I was six years old in 1970. My parents had a new Charger R/T SE as our family car. It was a time that will never be duplicated. The manufacturers were serious about selling cars,and marketing and racing sold cars!

And are those Keystone's on the front& rear? For sure Keystone for the rear wheels (IMO) on your parents (assuming?) awesome Charger? (kind of look like road wheels/magnum 500 on the front?)

Factory caps. More apparent if you watch the clip.

That was moms Charger,after she sold it to a friend of mine in 1982. He added the Keystones and aftermarket sport mirrors. The car is still in the area,a friend of mine saw it about 5 years ago when he was buying some parts off a guy a few towns away.

The A12 that I had was about 3 feet shorter in length and said Super bee on it. The damn thing didn't even come with hood hinges!

Yeah, I watch it on METV too and hate when he's in the Craparo.
