I think the car most commonly associated with Mayberry was Andy's Ford Galaxie police unit. They used different years of cars on the show, but the one I remember the most was a 1962 model. Speaking of which, I just now found this interesting tour service in Mount Airy, NC. Looks like it would be fun.

While Mayberry was fictional, Mt Airy was where Andy Griffith grew up and they may have used it as the inspiration for Mayberry.  Based on a photo, it looks like the tour service has a '62, a '63 a '64 and a '67.

For those that want to visit (revisit?) "Mayberry," the Savannah Region is hosting the 2021 AACA Southeastern Divisional Tour in Mt. Airy, NC, on 11-15 October 2021.  As you can imagine, a lot of the activities are centered on places & things associated with Andy Griffith.
