International Harvester
Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad that is for the IH Cub Cadets for '66 and says that the "Cadet is for keeps". The ad has a photo of a man driving one of these up a hill through grass that looks like it was almost a foot long. Most of the grass has been cut so it indicates that it will handle a difficult job. The ad describes the Cub Cadet as being "built like a tank and handles like a sports car". It offers Economy or Deluxe models and offers to handle bristling rough or showcase lawns. Additionally they were available as 7, 10 or 12 hp and claims that they are all 100 lbs stronger than most others. They claim that a 5-year old Cadet is still worth up to 2/3 their original price.

John Deere
Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for the John Deere "110" Tractor. There is a picture of a man who has probably just come home from work. He is still in his business suit and has laid his briefcase against the back wheel of his John Deere. He is sitting upon the seat, hands behind his head, and is staring off into the distance thinking about his "Weekend Retirement Plan". The text explains that this man owns a "country-style home" which he will now be able to take care of more easily. In fact he can even do it in the evenings so he will actually have his weekends free. It mentions that with this tractor, and an assortment of accessories, he will be able to "mow an acre an hour, till his garden, vacuum leaves, spray trees, clear snow and haul firewood". The text continues by reminding us about the history of John Deere and mentioning the engine size and safety features.

John Deere
Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for their 110 Lawn and Garden Tractor. There is a picture of one of these in their trademark Green and Yellow color with the headline offering to explain "How to tell it's a genuine John Deere Weekend Freedom Machine". There are eight lines on this picture pointing toward features that are adequatly bragged about in the captions. At the bottom of the ad are three pictures that, to me, seem to be laid out in reverse order. Picture #1 shows a man on his John Deere and the caption says "Mow an acre an hour". Picture #2 shows a man and his young son enjoying a day of fishing and the caption says "Set your weekends free". Picture #3, which is what you have to do to accomplish either of the first two, shows a wooden sign saying John Deere Lawn & Garden Tractor and the caption says "See your John Deere dealer.
