A fascinating compilation of vintage car commercials…
These vintage car commercials are fascinating for many reasons. One of them is that we get a glimpse at the ‘hard sell’ advertising methods commonly used in those days. Secondly we get also a rundown of the features on these cars and what was important to car buyers in the 1950‘s.
But what is more obvious is that consumers back then had no problem sitting through a two minute commercial, something impossible in today’s “short attention span” era.
The cars featured in the following video are: 1956-59 Dodge, ’56 Chrysler Imperial, ’57 Ford models, ’58 Edsel, 1950 Mercury and a Kaiser Henry J from the mid 50’s.
