AC/Cobra - Full color 7 3/4" x 10 3/4" ad that gives other drivers in the world "Fair warning from the Cobra!". There is a picture of a Yellow Cobra leaving a trail of dust as it easily handles a hilly dirt road. The text talks tauntingly about the super-hot Ford Fairlane V-8 mounted in the super-light AC chassis which provides "260 solid American horsepower" in a car weighing 2,020 pounds. It mentions the disc brakes, the soft leather seats and hints at over 150 mph and 7,200 rpm. It warns that "production is severely limited" at this time but, with a price of only $5,995, it was certainly worth it to "drop a line right now to Carroll Shelby Enterprises".

Mustang Convertible - Full color 10" x 12 1/2" ad shows a Blue convertible parked with it's top down on a hill overlooking a panoramic San Francisco. Next to the car is a well dressed gentleman about whom the ad tells the story about how buying a Mustang changed poor Bernard's luck for the better. It talks about the car being sporty and luxurious yet practical which is enough to change anyone's luck. It says that Lucky Bernard chose the sporty options such as the 289 cu. in. V-8, the Four-on-the-floor and the Tachometer and clock combo. Maybe buying this car had nothing to do with Bernard's luck but "Yesterday he won San Francisco in a faro game. And now he's got his eye on New York".
