1967 was a long time ago, and these ads prove that. “Mercury, the Man’s Car”? I always thought the original Cougar was quite appealing to women.
What’s this question got to do with the ad? Seems like a stretch.
But then this Rover ad is even more obscure.
An MGB/GT can save your marriage! Good to know.
How about something a bit more to the point, like the brand new BMW 1600 (1602). It was a steal at that price ($19k adjusted), and the start of BMW’s rapid rise to the top of the premium brand market. There was a young priest at our church in Towson that bought one in early 1967, and I vividly remember him driving a couple of us to a CYO retreat out in the country. He drove like the devil. No wonder he left the priesthood a couple of years later.
Lamborghini has certainly come a long way since this very early ad.
Mercedes’ arrogance was on full display already. Of course there was something to their claim.
This one is a classic.
A very prescient ad.
And of course the inevitable VW ad
