The only thing that did not change in the 1960's was the green, black and white color scheme- . . .
New reflective graphics replaced POLICE N.Y. on the hood and trunk and the command stencils on the doors.
The Beacon Rays received clear domes and 4 lamps with red and amber bulbs.
Chromed "Pulsator" sirens were mounted to the roof. The long antennas were gone.
Even the "sedan delivery" REPS were gone, replaced with panel truck type vehicles.
