1935
Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad that reminds you of the Security that you are provided with when you drive a car with a Body by Fisher. There is a cute picture of a little girl who has come home from school and is sitting in the snow on the front steps on her house striving to take her boots off. As a precious piece of mail the words First Class, Special Delivery and Insured are stamped in plain sight and the text talks about the things that a little girl wouldn't care about that a mother or father would, or anyone who was looking for a good car to buy. It reminds us of how far the features and safety in automobiles has come and that "you're likely to hear most folks say, 'When you buy a new car, better pick the one with Body by Fisher'".
