Ford V-8 Trucks - Black and white 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for the many different kinds of Ford Trucks available, all with a V-8. The ad shows a confident man driving a Ford Stake Bed Truck up a hill and the text explains why they only make Ford Trucks with a V-8 and why the Ford dealer has enough confidence to let you try his truck on your routes with your loads and your driver. The ad brings attention to features such as a New Cab, New Brakes, a New Clutch, Improved Cooling a New Crankcase Ventilation System and V-8 Performance with 4-cylinder Economy. The ad discusses some of the adjustments to the front spring and engine locations and what it will do for your ability to haul loads. The 19 different models are listed and list prices are given for each.

Ford Trucks - Three color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad offers proof that, as Joseoh J. Schwartz, a Produce Grower of Rochester, Michigan says "My Trucks Proved Ford Trucks Last Longer!". There is a drawing of his 1934 Ford Truck being loaded up with tomatoes from the field when it was new and the text makes the claim that now it "is running fine...even looks like new". After a few other quotes by this man the ad states that "More than half of all Ford Trucks in use are over 9 years old" and that "of all the trucks 14 years old or older that are in use today, more are Fords than all other makes combined". I am sure that if you consider the fact that, disregarding the 1946 and 1947 models, it had been seven years since Ford or any other truck manufacturer had made any new vehicles had nothing to do with the relevance of the first claim. The ad also mentions a few of the features and options that they felt were worth bragging about.

The three trucks that they were offering you were the Falcon Ranchero, the new Styleside Pickup and the new Econoline Pickup. This is what everyone was looking for, a selection of trucks. The Falcon Ranchero was a compact truck with compact costs. It is claimed to have all the flair and fashion of a Falcon car with all of its riding comfort and handling ease. A truck with up to 30 mpg. The new Styleside Pickup was everything you would want in a truck: 6 or V-8, 5 transmissions to choose from and a 6 1/2", 8 or 9 foot bodies. The Econoline Pickup gave you maximum economy in a pickup truck with a 3/4 ton capacity. Gives up to 30 % better gas mileage than a 1/2 ton truck and saved on oil, tires, on replacement parts and even license fees.

Trucks with a camping personality - Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for their different trucks that could be equipped with a camper or used the way they were for "Beach House. Mountain Retreat. Hunting Lodge". The ad says to "See your Ford Dealer for his full listing" yet shows five different models in the ad so you can get an idea. First there is the F-250 Camper Special which is considered the most popular model and the ad lists many of the features. The second truck shown is the F-350 Camper Special which is longer than the F-250 and brawnier. The third one is the Econoline Super-Van with an extension roof for full headroom. Fourth is the Fairlane Ranchero which has V-8 power and is able to be fitted with a collapsible tent trailer or a shell camper. Last we have the Bronco 4-wheel drive with the ad showing a good size camper perched on its back.
