The modern car advertisement. It’s all slick visuals, obscure symbolism and beautiful people. It hasn’t always been this way of course, and back in the days of no internet and only three television channels a lot of car manufacturers relied on the print media to promote their latest models.
Sit back and enjoy as we take you through our retro classic advertising highlights:
No1 – Ford here, illustrating that the 1958 Ford Fairline really was built in a different era.
No2 – Headlamp wipers, interior adjustable door mirrors and rear seatbelts? You are spoiling us Lada.
No3 – This is actually an advert for the Dolomite Sprint.
No4 – Imagine having to try and sell this box on wheels – at least the floor looks nice and shiny.
No5 – “Women are soft and gentle, but they hit things.”
