From fascinating to funny, classic to corny – this is a
glimpse into the Ford commercial advertisement treasure trove.
This volume in the Ford Archive Gems series brings together
an extensive collection of classic adverts and promotional films discovered in
the vaults of the pioneering car manufacturers. From black and white
information films to stylish color adverts, this collection, introduced by
motoring expert Simon Taylor, charts some of the best-known Ford models, and
the bold attempts to sell them.
Everything from the infamous Edsel to the legendary Mustang
is covered in this comprehensive edition. Drawing from Ford’s advertising in
the US, UK and France, this extraordinary collection will evoke fond memories,
a broad grin or out-loud laughter.
Plus, Formula One great Sir Jackie Stewart and touring car
legend Andy Rouse make guest appearances in this unique collection – even
Jackie’s family take a turn as the Stewart clan tries out the Taunus for size.
