Ramblers - Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for the multitude of features that make the 1955 Ramblers appealing. The headline promises the "Lowest Price_Highest Resale Value!" and claims the "Mobilgas Economy Run proves Rambler gives you Most Miles Per Gallon". Pictured in this ad is a Yellow Rambler Cross-Country Station Wagon loaded down with luggage and family as it has stopped on a trip and the occupants are looking at the countryside. The other pictures in the ad ask you to "Imagine enjoying Chaise Lounge comfort in a car", show that "You can out-park, out-turn, out-maneuver them all in Rambler" and show the Twin Travel Beds that allow your family to avoid motel bills on your trip to the wild. Another picture shows the new All-Welded Double Strength Single Unit Car Construction used in each Rambler and mentions the All-Season Air Conditioner that is amazingly affordable. There is another picture that shows a White Deluxe Club Sedan for the price of $1585 and mentions that these cars were available "at all Nash dealers and Hudson dealers".

Ramblers - Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad that tells a cartoon story about the Comfort and Excellence of the 1960 Ramblers. The six-frame cartoon starts with the headline "Astronaut blasts off at Big Car" and shows an unhappy astronaut bringing his spaceship close to the ground and using his weapons (didn't know that we put weapons on the early spaceships, did you) to destroy his "gas-guzzling, space-waster" that was parked on the ground. It shows him trying unsuccessfully to get into a "small, foreign-type U.S. car" and not knowing what to do next until "one day, on his outer-space intercom, this message came through 'Go Rambler for 1960". His radar directed him toward the nearest Rambler dealer and he and five other "big space pilots with parachutes" took one for a test drive. This drive, and reading about the economy honors, convinced him to buy one of the 1960 Ramblers. A small inset picture shows a Red Rambler Ambassador 2-door Sedan with a price tag of $1795 and the larger picture shows a 1960 Rambler Custom Cross Country 3-seat Wagon and a 1960 Rambler Custom 4-door Sedan parked in front of a line of waiting U.S. Air Force jets.

Ramblers - Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad that wants to talk about the Basic Excellence you will find in a Rambler. There is a cartoon story entitled "Skin Diver finds Hidden Treasure". In this story the skin diver is fed-up with his "gas-greedy pirate" and deposits it in the water weighted down with boulders. He tries a Foreign Car but complains how small it is, finding it difficult to even get into it. Most cars are hard to get into when you still have your two tanks of air on your back. Coming up to the dock he sees several Ramblers parked there and they picque his interest. He test-drives one, examines the Deep-Dip Rustproofing and decides to buy one. Shown in the ad is a Red Cross Country Wagon parked next to the beach and a Yellow American labeled with a price of $1795.

There is a picture of a Brown and White Four-Door Ambassador parked on a dock with quite a number of sailboats tied up in the background. There is a family of four who have driven up in this car looking at these boats as they enjoy the peaceful day.

There are two smaller pictures that show how this car will fit in a parking spot or a garage where "Other medium-priced cars" won't and the text gives comparitive dimensions with other cars and claims you will get "250 HP V-8 Performance on regular grade gasoline".

It talks about the extra Headroom these cars had, even though having cushioned, accoustical ceilings.
