Ford Anglia - Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that shows a Light-Colored 2-Door Sedan and is very similar to other ads of this time, just showing different cars. There is a backyard barbecue with the people who are not cooking or preparing the meal gathered around the Anglia being shown the sights. The headline says it all by claiming "It's imported! It's Ford! It's yours for $1 a day!" The text talks about the low price, the British Craftsmanship, the size, the power and the availability of service.

The text describes this car with words that a prospective owner would certainly hope refer to him too and mentions features like the wizard new OHV engine and sports-type gearshift, the Z-line rear window, the Wide Doors and the Complete Dashboard which refers to the British habit of leaving out gauges that we Americans had come to depend on, such as a gas gauge. It mentions a price of about $1600 before mentioning how much money you will also save on gas.

1966
Ford Cortina - Black and white 9 1/2" x 13 3/4" ad with a photo of a 1966 Ford Cortina Two-Door parked outside a house with a couple standing tightly by the passenger side door. The ad headline announces the "Ford Cortina: our lowest priced total performance car". It then says that "It won't cost you much. It gives you up to 30 miles per gallon. It's built to last. (Lubed-for-life fittings, for example.) It's dependable (Disc brakes, for one reason). And it's fun to drive. What more do you want for as little as $1,765.49? (We're one car manufacturer who scouts the pennies. Because they're your pennies. Maybe that's a reason why "Car & Driver" readers have voted Cortina the best car in the class for the last two years.) Cortina springs from a family of cars that has proved itself in more than 300 races and rallies. The 1,300-mile Canadian Winter Rally (Brrr!) The East African Safari (Whew!) Even the daily race for the 8:15 at Scarsdale (rugged competition) Besides that, it looks good and makes sense. Cortina holds five people without feeling like the beach on July 4. It has wall-to-wall carpeting to keep feet warm. Foam-padded seats (bucket seats in front) to keep people sitting pretty. And a safety padded instrument panel and sun visors. Also a ventilation system that can change the air in the car every 40 seconds. A nearly kid-proof washable vinyl interior. And a 20-cubic-foot capacity trunk, because everyone in your family, except you, packs too much. All this costs very little. For quite a bit of car, Cortina costs $1,765.49 for the two-door sedan, $1,884.93 for the four-door sedan, $2,102.10 for the four-door station wagon; $2,121.68 for the GT model and the Cortina modified by Lotus, $3,419.70, which isn't much for a bomb".

Ford Cortina - Full color 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" ad has a photo of a Light-colored Model C parked under a tree in a large field. The ad headline says "Introducing another better idea from Ford...". The text continues by saying "The Model C is Ford's new Cortina - a unique advance in basic transportation - every bit as sensible as the "Model T" and the "Model A" were. Yet this new Cortina, at $1815 (as lilttle as $39.67 per month), is the most enjoyable thing that ever came between you and the road. Spacious enough for five adults, it's a performance machine with a distinguished international racing heritage. Model C gives you a lot for $1815". Then, if that was not enough, they tease you by announcing the Model C Plus. This had a GT engine with 25% more power, a tachometer, ammeter and old pressure gauge and a center console between the bucket seats>

Ford Cortina - Full color 10" x 13" ad for the Ford CortinaGrey Ford Cortina with a pretty model lying on the rear window deck and the headline calls her "Cuter'n a bug's rear". The text says that "Before you take off in the Queen Mary of small cars, check for stowaways. Cortina's "boot" (trunk to you) takes 21 cubic feet of gear (about 5 normal suitcases), even golf bags. There's room for a crew of 4 big sailors and a lot of booty, too! Even with a load like that, Cortina's 67 well-engineered horses accelerate fast past the petrol pumps. As for service, it's everywhere - strictly American - with domestic type nuts and bolts. Now that Cortina's hit the U.S., there'll really be some sourkrauts around!".
