A wonderful new world of Fords – Car Adverts from 1960

Written by Christopher • October 16th, 2008

Enjoy this fun and swanky Ford commercial from 1960 linking new compact cars to futurism and the space frontier. They don’t make commercials like this anymore, do they?

If you like this, there is a ton of more of old commericals and archive footage to be found in the Prelinger Archives at the ever so great archive.org website.
