DKW
1960 DKW - Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad for "The Remarkable DKW Surefooted as the Cast of the Ice Follies...Designed to go where other cars loose traction". Pictured in the ad is a Light-Colored DKW parked on an icy pavement. Attached to the back are five ropes with about thirty people holding on, preparing to be towed. The engine is very simple, only seven basic moving parts. It has no camshafts, no timing gears and no valves. All it has are three pistons, three connecting rods and a crankshaft. Not bad. The lubrication in a DKW is by oily vapor, oil is mixed with the gas (a two-cycle) and cannot gum up the pistons.

DKW
1960 DKW-750 - Black and white 10" x 14" ad that has a picture racing a baseball player around the infield. The headline claims that "The remarkable DKW-750 beats Gil McDougald of the New York Yankees around the bases". The first line under the headline asks "How did it do it?". The facts are that the car traveled the bases in 12.0 seconds and Mr. McDougald did it in 13.8 seconds. The next question was "Why does front wheel drive make the DKW such a 'good baserunner'". The front wheel drive enabled the car to be pulled rather than pushed around the bases. "What about acceleration and three cylinders>" They claim that three cylinders can co the work of a six cylinder engine. "Some other interesting facts". The brakes have not been placed ON the wheels but on the axle either side of the transmission. The price for this amazing automobile is only $1665.

We have a Light-Blue Datsun 1200 parked on a little gravel road that is surrounded by acres of flowers growing away. They say that this economy car doesn't look, act or feel like an economy car. They say that outside it's "neat and stylish, complete with whitewall tires". They then say that inside "it has all-vinyl upholstery, bucket seats, nylon carpeting". They say that it has disc brakes and will go from 0-60 in less that 15 seconds.
