AC
Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Oil Filters. The ad has a picture of western-star Dale Robertson from the set of the NBC television show Wells Fargo. Dale is standing with his six-gun out in front of a Buick, which was one of the sponsors of that show, and the cartoon dog Trapper who was a character used on AC commercials at that time. Trapper also has a six-gun out but his has an AC logo attached to it. The ad text urges you to change your filter each time you change your oil and mentions the AC Spark Plug. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

AC
Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad that tells you to "Get better performance, longer engine life...install the AC Oil Filter engineered for your car". There are four pictures that are filled with information about how and why, and they all include the AC Oil Drop. The first picture tells you that"Different size cars take different size engines" which is something good to know. The second picture says that "Different size engines take different size filters" which is good to know. The third picture claims that "An AC Oil Filter removes dirt too small to see" which is good to know. And the fourth picture tells you"For the proper protection for your car, ask for an AC Oil Filter that's tailored to your engine's filtering needs". With all the information we have been given, I think that is a good idea.

Autolite
Full color 7 3/4" x 10 3/4" ad for their Oil Filter that is so good that they had the confidence to use it on a $250,000 experimental car, There is a picture of this car parked on a banked track and the headline claims that they used a regular Autolite Filter, "Like you buy.

Fram
Three color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Oil & Motor Cleaner...the Modern Oil Filter. This ad appeared less than a year after the conclusion of World War II and people were still trying to keep their old cars running since the new cars were not being produced yet. The picture shows a soldier holding a canister unit and talking to a mechanic who is offering words of wisdom as another man watches. The headline says "Back from the battle fronts To Save Motors, Breakdowns, Money". The text claims that these units have been "proved by the Army and Navy on every battle front" so the soldiers coming back were asking for a familiar name.

Purolator
Three color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad with George Burns and his wife Gracie Allen for Purolator Oil Filters. In this ad we see a picture of the couple with looks of amazement and disgust on their faces as the mechanic holds up the old style oil filter that is covered in "more than 2 lbs of sludge and abrasives". Gracie leans back to George and says "Ooooh George - that horrible stuff in our car?". The ad has a four-frame cartoon that shows the conversation these three people supposedly had where the mechanic explained what had happened to their engine, comparing the oil filter to the filter tip on their cigarette, which causes George and Gracie to suggest changing the filter to which the mechanic insists on a new Purolator.
