Go Buick!!

The claim in the ad may be true, but those guys are going to have to remove their top hats to sit in the back of that Buick!  Not like the good old days when a man could go to the opera and not have to worry about where to stash his hat while riding in his limo. 😁

I'll have to check that out Neil.

I was usually behind the wheel when I had the car on the road (let alone the fact I NEVER wore a top hat..). 🙂

If you look at most Buick ads from the fifties, the people illustrated are always smaller in proportion to the cars. Kind of like when Volkswagen started advertising their cars on television. They had Dustin Hoffman as their spokesperson.  At 5' 6" he made the little VW appear much bigger.

 

It looks like there's seating for four or five across the front seat in this ad. Typical. This guy could wear a top hat and still have headroom.

I can guarantee at 6'4" there is room to sit in there but will have to find a Top hat to truly answer the question. 😉

Okay, NOW we're getting somewhere!  What year is that ad from?

Here is another Buick ad plus a couple from Fisher Body depicting Top 🎩 s, must of been very popular in that era.

I found this used as packing material in a box of stuff stored on a shelf in the garage the other day...
