Mannix worked originally for Wickersham at Intertect and then struck out on his own, assisted by Peggy Fair (whose cop-husband had been killed) and Police Department contact Tobias.
During the 1972 to 1973 season, Mannix's car (a 1973 Plymouth Barracuda convertible) was actually three 1971 models updated (by changing the grill, headlights, hood, and taillights panel) to look like a 1973 Barracuda, as Plymouth no longer made the Barracuda as a convertible, and driving a convertible had been a Mannix trademark since the show began. Mannix began to drive the Challenger, which also went out of production.
