Vintage Ad: Every Young Girl’s Dream… A 1987 Cadillac Seville?

1987 Cadillac Ad-01

Although you don’t need me to tell you, take a look at this ravishing woman. Now whatever you may be imagining about this young twenty-something blonde, try to imagine what kind of car she drives. A BMW 3-Series convertible maybe? Or what about a Mercedes 560SL? Whatever comes to your mind is probably something that shares her athletic, stylish, and sexy characteristics – in other words, not a 1987 Cadillac Seville.

Car companies have been using beautiful women to sell cars since the dawn of the automobile, but this one is definitely a stretch. Kudos to the ad agency that created this for trying, if you could call it that. But this type of woman shared very little in common with the Seville’s target buyer, other than that she could be their daughter or even granddaughter. I think it’s safe to say that the ’87 Seville failed to resonate with most young women reading Vogue Magazine. The top half of the ad is still very nice though.
