    I was never a fan of this show (I like Father Knows Best better), but I remembered watching a partial episode where The Beaver won a fancy sports car. It wasn't a Corvette or a T-Bird. It looked foreign and possibly Italian but it wasn't a Ferrari, at least not a Ferrari that I recognized.

    An internet search showed nothing other than The Beaver won a $3500 sports car that was later sold and the money put into his college fund.

    If any fans of Leave It To The Beaver know what the car is, please let me know. The question has been nagging me since forever.

    BTW, the name of the show was Leave It to Beaver, not Leave It to THE Beaver.

    Yep. He could give the Beaver quite the tongue lashing.

    "Oh Ward I'm worried about the beaver". "No not that beaver, our SON the Beaver".

    I just remember Wally asking his mom, "where's dad?" June replied, "Oh he's out looking for Beaver."

    If memory serves, it was an MG MGA. Look it up for 1960 and see if it's your baby.

    I think I found it. It might have been a Triumph TR3A.

    There was DEFINITELY a Triumph TR3A in the show, but can't remember if it was the car Beaver won.

    It was not. I got confused because I didn’t watch the whole episode and for some reasons my mind linked the car to the episode where the Beaver won a sports car. The brand was never mentioned nor picture of the car shown in the episode where he won the drawing/raffle.
