1965 MG - Black and white 7 3/4" x 11" ad that wonders "Who says a high performance sports car has to be a "Pneumonia Wagon"? (Certainly not MG". The text in this ad says that "We admit there was a time when owning one required a Spartan outlook and a strong constitution. There have been some changes made. By MGB". The changes that have been made include the tops, soft or hard, they are remarkably free from leaks, draughts, rattles and flaps. The roll up side windows actually do roll up, tightly. The seat adjustment has now become decadent, more room in the lock-up luggage compartment and more stowage and passenger space.

Steeped in British luxury. Yet priced at a modest $3,095". There are three exclusive pictures in the top half of the ad. The first is of the hatchback rear opening of the car. The hatchback is open and the blonde is sitting on the inside. The second is taken from the front angle of the car.

This shows the length of the car with the blonde standing upright on the driver's side door jamb. The text compares this car with the winners of Sebring and Le Mans and then goes into a pretty complete description of what you will get with this car.

The text lets you know that, by buying this car, you will have saved a great deal of money. It does have a 1798 cc. engine so that makes it more of a steal. There is a list of more features and a statement that "the new MGB/GT acts as though 'luxury' and 'standard' were synonymous".

MG Midget - Black and white 7 3/4" x 11" ad that is for the 1970 MG Midget car that says that "Living in this sports car world has its own price. A very low one". The large photo in the ad shows a man and a woman standing next to their MG Midget admiring it and talking. There are three smaller photos, one is a shot with both doors open looking at the same couple leaning against one of the doors, another shows them standing against the rear and the third shows them standing alongside the car. The text says "Now, more than ever before, the MG Midget offers you unparelleled sports car performance for your money. Among other things, the 1970 Midget features radial-ply tires and a sleek new grille. Plus, of course, it's classic rack-and-pinion steering, racing suspension, and short-throw gearbox. But the best part of the Midget is the midget price tag - $2279. Which makes the Midget '70 the lowest priced true sports car going".
