As reported 49 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, March 22, 1956:

Motorists who keep an eye out for Highway Patrol cars may be in for a shock now that some 20 new gray cars are in use and 25 more are on order. Black cars have been in use since 1942, but all future patrol cars will be gray.
