Would You Buy a Used Car from Billy Halop?
6 March 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

On their way to get married in Arizona, "nice" Ray Montgomery (as Johnny Conway) and "lovely" Emily Heath (as Sue Bailey) crash their newly purchased used car, when the breaks fail. At the hospital, Sergeant Archie Twitchell (as Tom Harris) believes the couple bought a "shaggy dog" (aka a "lemon"); and, he phones "Racket Squad" Captain John Braddock (Reed Hadley) about his suspicions. An interview with Mr. Montgomery leads to flashbacks…

Earlier, Montgomery and Ms. Heath are warned against buying the car, by conscientious mechanic James Bell (as Pete Johnson). But, fast-talking salesman Billy Halop (as Porter) intervenes, and sells the couple a re-painted wreck. After Mr. Bell reveals how "Square Deal Danny" (John Doucette) bilks customers, Capt. Braddock investigates the crooked owner… A notable series entry, for both its helpful message, and the TV debut of Mr. Halop.
