Thought I would start a thread for vintage ads. I've been collecting car advertising for quite awhile. Some of the best I've run across are from playboy magazines of the era..Seems like alot of the muscle car ads of course targeted the "playboy lifestyle" The approach was simple, Hot cars=Hot chicks

I think ford & dodge were playboys best customers. Waging their turf war in the pages of playboy. So if you if have some good ads post em up they don't have to be 71-73 specific but should be from the muscle car era & ford related. I have a great one of Carroll Shelby endorsing some hair product will get that up shortly but will start with these

Cool! I'll have to try to dig up some of mine. I've seen the one on the bottom, but I've never seen tho one on the top.

I posted this one in another thread back in 2011, but there may be some that missed it. It's a two page advert that I p'shopped together; don't look too close or you'll see that I forgot to add the rear door gap on the car as it was right on the two page join line....

Not exactly an ad, but cool pic of the 1972 Chicago Auto Show with a Mach 1 as the centerpiece that looks to be outfitted exactly as mine.

Looks like Greg Brady Too !

Ha, that's what I thought too when I posted the pic originally: "In this ad I think we are witnessing the first time that Greg Brady, all gussied up in his best chequered pants and polo-neck pullover, plucked up the guts to ask his step-sister Marcia out on a picnic date" :wub:

What is with Ford back in the day? A lot of good looking women in their ads!
