Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Cruising Sunset Strip in 1964

Written by Chris Alm • February 5th, 2013

Here’s a interesting video capturing the midst of a sunny 1960s Los Angeles. Let’s take a cruise down famous, Sunset Strip with a up-beat rock & roll surf tune blasting out from the radio.

Look at the beautiful and colorful signage advertising everything from restaurants, liquor and mortgages and not forgetting the parade of Chryslers, Oldsmobiles, Chevrolets that look like they just drove out of the car dealer lot.

Below we move forward to 1966 to take a look at how Sunset Strip looks after midnight. For more wonderful videos of Vintage Los Angeles, be sure to check out Alison Martino’s YouTube account.
