1961 Fiat Spider & 600 - Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad that indicates that a man wants a different Fiat than his wife does. The ad says that "He wanted a Fiat Spider, She wanted a Fiat "600"". In the ad the man is standing in front of a Red Fiat Spider waving his arm at it like a man indicating a priceless antique. The woman is standing by the Green Fiat "600" with one hand to her face and the other spread behind her. The ad says "They got them both" which is the expensive way to settle a problem such as this. The text describes the both of them, saying the Spider could be had for a price of only $2595 and the "600" could be had for only $1395.

1964 Fiat - Black and white 9 3/4" x 13" ad that shows a Fiat Convertible in the background but, in the front of the photo, it has a lady in a polka-dot bikini suggestively looking at the car. The ad headline, and I have no idea which they are talking about, says "The second best shape in Italy". The ad text continues by saying "at the hottest little price in the USA. You've seen the first, in films. Now see the Fiat, in person. Fiat is the hot one. The Italians did it the way they do most things. With style. With flair. With flourish. And there's no Germanic thrill showing. This Fiat sport comes with all the extras a not a penny extra. Bucket seats, power brakes, leatherette upholstery, heater, defroster, tachometer, dual electric wipers, safety belt anchors, bumper guards, self-cancelling turn signals, help-lights and tool kit. And speaking of figures, you can't even come close to a shape like this at a price so trim and appealing. At $2639, it's the lowest-priced sports car in its class. Every family should have at least one Fiat".

1965 Fiat 1100D Sedan - Black and white 10" x 14" ad that has a picture of a lady with a pair of binoculars to her face under the headline that says "America Discovers Italia". What they are advertising for is for the vehicle that is under the young lady. There is a Light-Colored 1965 Fiat 1100D Sedan parked with two couples sitting in it. They say that it only costs $1595 and they say that it is equal to the other things we like from Italy, such as wine, women, music, art and historic Roma. There are at least three lines worth of accessories that they feel are worth mentioning.

1966 Fiat 600D Two-Door Sedan - Black and white 10" x 13 1/2" ad for a classic question. The picture, ninety percent of the ad, shows a very pretty young lady at the front of the ad and a Fiat 600D at the rear of it. The lady is somewhat muted by the lack of light but her figure is stunning. The Fiat, on the other hand, is well lit and standing very proud. The headline at the top says "At $1237 what could cut a prettier figure than the Second Best Shape in Italy". The text says that "Because Italians regard their cars almost as highly as their women, they create Fiat with no hint of the economy showing".

1967 Fiat 850 - Black and white 7" x 10 1/2" ad that talks about the two different styles of the 850 that were available. There is a picture that shows a Fiat 850 Spider with the top down and an 850 Coupe each parked facing a different direction in what is supposed to be a drive-in restaurant. Each car has a tray perched on a window and the car hop is walking away from the camera as the headline brags that "Fiat solves the topless controversy". The text explains that you will always "Get that King-of-the-Road feeling with Fiat" and gives you the option of "Top or Topless" with the "popular new Fiat 850". It gives a price for the Spider of $1998 and for the Coupe of $1795. It continues by giving some general accolades for the Fiat cars and, when asked about economy, claims that "They almost live on love".
