FORD HAD A BETTER IDEA - THE 1968 MUSTANG INTRO SPOT - VARIOUS OUTLETS - CIRCA FALL 1967
In the tumultuous sixties, Detroit car makers were the kings of the road.
The Motor City moguls, like Ford, GM and Chrysler, and their Madison Avenue advertising agencies, were as good at selling the promise of sex and youth to prospective buyers as they were at moving muscle cars off the lot and on to the American highway.
In the Fall of 1967, as this country faced convulsive social and political change, the Ford Motor Company rolled out the new, 1968 Mustang in a super-sized , 2 minute and 58 second commercial that delivered high octane laughs for viewers and high volume results for car dealers.
It was good time spot that diverted consumers attention from upheaval in the streets to horsepower in the driveway.
From the ROGUE SYRENE YOU TUBE site is a fast & funny ad that explains why ONLY MUSTANG MAKES IT HAPPEN. Enjoy!!!!!
