Buick paper ads

Recommended Posts

By the way I didn't get any work on my car done.  It's amazing how many ads I had out there.  Lots of Caddy and LAsalle, Mopar, Studebaker NAsh Willys Hupmobile, even a Duessy and some pierce Arrow pieces as well as a pile of Packard stuff and much is prewar. 

Alot of it is in surprisingly nice shape as well. 

I could probably wall paper my new shop with them and have to take time to pick which ones i wanted to use.

A number of reasons, 

 

It’s a full size newspaper page, not a magazine. There’s plenty of magazine ads around , full size newspaper adds not so many and when found generally in poor condition
 

it’s a COLOR newspaper ad, pretty rare especially in the 50’s era.  


the subject matter and the details it gives about the ‘54 Buicks sales beginning to soar, which continued through ‘54 and increased even more in ‘55

 

and the colors, especially of the car. It's the typical color ads for the spring.  Same color as my ‘54 Century 😊


Here it is in a view you can appreciate it’s size better

Best 54 Buick Man Cave ever. I don’t see the Havana Club rum bottle anymore. Will fix that soon🇨🇺 !

Hopefully I'll unearth some good stuff tomorrow.  Have a box of Nice stuff I have never looked in.  Also have a binder full of 30's Buick ads I'll shoot tomorrow and post as well as a huge Nice 1958 Ad in color from a newspaper insert Highlighting all the new 1958 Cars. I have some really nice thick annuals from the 1930's with very nice full color ads I should dig through that probably have a nice Buick one in them as well.   I better stop digging or I won't get anything done on my car again.

Buickful! Some nice ones for sure.

I want to comment again on how well you present your ads and literature on eBay. So many good pictures, there’s no doubt about what a person is bidding on. I just like to visit your  auctions to look at the pictures 😁

I can't see why they wouldn't no other way to get rid of them,  just like the you now,  they just offered discounts to move them out I would imagine.  Back then you didn't want to be seen in a used car if you could afford a new one,  so it might have been even harder to sell the left overs when the new models came out.  Especially when you hit the big body changes where there was a real big difference from the previous year.

That's about all I have.  I do have to look in a few 1938 1939 roughly era Motorshow annual type books as they probably have some nice Buick ads in them.   Maybe I'll save that for tomorrow.   

The newspaper ones are full size newspapers from Millwaukee

I ran across this ad going through some of my materials while cleaning my office at home.
