Get Smart Ver 3

When Our Classic Opel's Were New:


Maxwell Smart, a.k.a. Agent 86, works for CONTROL, based in Washington, D.C, is a totally inept secret agent. Smart can barely use the gadgetry the agency provides him (including a phone embedded in his shoe). Nevertheless, he and his fellow agents always seem to thwart the operations of KAOS, an organized crime outfit dedicated to evil. Agent 99 is Smart's smarter partner, a resourceful agent who eventually marries her bumbling cohort. Smart and Agent 99's boss is a man known only as The Chief.

First episode date: September 18, 1965
Final episode date: September 11, 1970
Writers: Mel Brooks, Buck Henry, Leonard B. Stern, James Komack

With a writer like Mel Brooks and cars like the Opel GT, it was bound to be a cultural hit!

* Please Note: Maxwell Smart 's Cars

The car that Smart is seen driving most frequently is a red 1965 Sunbeam Tiger two-seat roadster. This car had various custom features, such as a machine gun, smoke screen, radar tracking, and an ejection seat. The Sunbeam Alpine, upon which the Tiger was based, was used by customizer Gene Winfield because the Alpine's four-cylinder engine afforded more room under the hood than the V8 in the Tiger. AMT, Winfield's employer, made a model kit of the Tiger, complete with hidden weapons. It is the only kit of the Tiger, and has been reissued multiple times as a stock Tiger.

Don Adams received the Sunbeam and drove it for 10 years after the end of the show. It was wrecked and repaired several times, and its current whereabouts are unknown.

In the black-and-white pilot episode only, Smart drives a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT PF Spider Cabriolet.

In the opening credits, the Tiger was used for seasons one and two. In seasons three and four, Smart drives a light blue Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, because Volkswagen had become a sponsor of the show. The Volkswagen was never used in the body of the show.

In season five (1969–1970), Buick became a show sponsor, so the Blue Ghia was replaced with a Aztec Gold 1969 Opel GT, which also appears in the body of the show.
