Spot illustration by Charley Harper from an article in FORD TIMES magazine, 1967. Since FORD TIMES was digest-sized, this illustration is reproduced at roughly the size of a 50-cent piece. But my God, isn’t it terrific?
“In April, Norma Wick’s kitchen was sunburst yellow. In May, apple red. In September, spring green.”
Norma Wick is clearly bat-shit crazy. Why Ford chose her to endorse the ‘67 Galaxie 500/XL is beyond me. Oh, wait, it’s because she bought three new Fords in “the past six years.”
Three ads from the years when Buick had a product-placement deal with Warner Brothers. This went on until the War; everybody in a Warners picture during those years—from Bette Davis in NOW VOYAGER to the Nazis in CASABLANCA are driving Buicks.
(I remember being disappointed to find that there were actually no Buicks in the “Words Are In My Heart” number from GOLDDIGGERS OF 1935.)
