to John's Old Car
and Truck Brochures and Ads
This site contains brochures
for most of the early
North American car and
was fortunate enough to come across a large collection of
old ads for cars,trucks and accessories from the very beginning to around 1970.Like many of my pictures these were posted on alt.binaries.pictures.autos.Considering how successful "John's Old Car and Truck Pictures" has been I decided to share these old ads in much the same way. I have always enjoyed reading old ads on cars, car accessories or most anything else. Besides learning of the equipment that was available years ago we also got a feeling for how society thought at that time. Truth in advertising was not heard of yet and most anything could and was said about a product.
Safety was becoming an issue especially in tires and many scare tactics were used. Above all else we had to protect our women and children
from the evils of the motor car. Sex was also started to be used in advertising but in a very low key suggestive way
Ethyl, the girl with the gasoline had some interesting lines.
"Anything runs better with Ethyl" or " Just ask for Ethyl,
I add snap to any car" And how could we drive anywhere without American Chains?? Just recently I received a large number from Leif Ericksson from Sweden of the Chrysler Airflow, Kaiser-Frazer and Henry J's.
The Henry J page was made possible because of these new ads.
I hope you enjoy them. The pages are comprised of old brochures from the birth of the automobile to up into the 1970's
