When I was on the set a few months ago, there were scattered fiberglass castings of a first-generation Ford Thunderbird littered about, along with a completely rotted 1959 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special.

I was told that this strange fleet was recently expanded with another T-Bird; no word on whether the second is real or not. My bet is that the T-Bird plunging into the water in the teaser trailer is the fiberglass car, though I can't be certain. The '59 Fleetwood was supposedly cut up, probably for interior shots. The '58 Cadillacs arrived after I finished my work.

I don't have any other information other than the period bicycles which were procured for the series, which were as follows (as best as my memory serves me):

1958 Schwinn Jaguar (? - don't remember), 3-speed w/Sturmey-Archer shifter, Flamboyant Green. Minty machine; rode beautifully.
1957 Schwinn Jaguar MkII, 3-speed w/Schwinn Approved shifter, black. Notable as its 3-speed cable kept getting hung up on the inside of the tank. Had to replace the cable.
1962 Schwinn Debutante - the only one I have a partial photo of. The turn-of-the-century bike was not going to be used.
1957 Schwinn Corvette, Flamboyant Red; 2-speed Bendix kick-back, IIRC
195X Huffy, ladies'. Falling apart, but ridable - chainguard refused to stay put though.
1964+ J.C. Higgins Spaceliner, ladies' (Sears Spaceliner, essentially)
1973 Columbia Tourist III - might wind up in a background shot, I was told.

There were also three 20" and a few 24" Schwinn models there - didn't take much note of them, just fixed them.

EDIT: Bike photos. First is the '57 Corvette 2-speed kickback:

'57 Schwinn Jaguar Mark II at left, followed by the Flamboyant Green Jaguar, and a 24" Schwinn in Flamboyant Green. Rider at right is on the '62 Corvette:

A pretty poor photo of the '62 Debutante (seen better in the prop shop picture above):

FYI, the Pontiac Chieftain was provided by Ted Vernon's Specialty Automobiles (now SOBE Classics), unlike most of the others:

After seeing three episodes, I can say one thing for certain: A great selection of cars, woefully underused. Hardly anything gets decent screentime in the first 3 episodes, with exception to the '57 T-Bird (which, in its own right, is on screen for less than 2 minutes).

cudak888, I've edited some of your comments and changed big pictures into clickable thumbnails. Pictures added in comments could be added but only using thumbnails for forums. To add thumbnails you can use the host you want or the own system of the site you see at the bottom of each page "store pictures on the site". /upload.php Leave always clicked the little square next to the script "Automatic resize/recompress picture if needed", upload the picture and, later, you'll see two results. Copy and paste in the comment the first one with script "Link for posting picture into comments with a clickable thumbnail image: (recommended)". Thanks.

Vilero, I believe - but don't quote me on this - that the interior of that Riviera coupe was shot in the 1957 Lincoln Premiere.

So that's what the rusted '59 Fleetwood was used for.

^
Confirmation of the above - I saw the '59 Fleetwood leaning outside the prop shop today; the front half, that is. It has been been cut in half.

The '60 Thunderbird was peeking out of one of the roll-up doors, along with a late-1940's/early-1950's cab of unknown make or model.

Season 2 filming. The '55 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria shows up again, along with an Oldsmobile, which is a local car owned by a collector.
