Don Knotts was former Dodge spokesman

from the Scoop at Chrysler Group:

Don Knotts, who won TV immortality and five Emmys for playing the bumbling Deputy Barney Fife on “The Andy Griffith Show,” died last Friday. What some people might not know is that in the late 1960s and early ’70s Knotts served as a spokesman for Dodge trucks and was featured prominently in a series of print ads and dealer brochures. The ad below (in the online version of The Scoop) discusses the finer points of the 1971 Adventurer pickup. Thanks to Auburn Hills Complex employee Karl Lis for remembering the actor’s connection.
