1965
GMC Pickup - Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad that wants you to know that the quality of a GMC Pickup is not as expensive as you would expect. There is a picture of a Red Pickup with an assortment of captions with lines pointing to the feature they are referring to. The one that caught my attention was their claim for having a husky wood floor in the bed. The headline claims that "Most men think this GMC pickup costs a lot more than it really does. Can you blame them?" and then it spills the beans by saying that "The truth is its price is only $49 more than others."

GMC Pickup - Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that wants to explain to you how, even though the GMC Pickups are $49 more "than the others", they are more than worth it. We see in the ad a Blue GMC Pickup whose body is floating above the frame and the headline says "The price of this GMC Pickup is $49 more than others. (But don't raise the roof. Let us.)" There are arrows pointing toward eight points of interest on this vehicle with explanations for each telling us what about these is more special about the way that GMC makes their trucks.
