We know from our customer that they just can’t get enough of the old radio and tv ads that we “play” on our hold button. Can’t tell you how many times we grab somebody off hold only to have the customer ask to be put BACK on hold do they can finish listening to the commercials!
Anyway, here are a whole bunch of vintage radio and tv ads for our beloved Chrylser, DeSoto, Dodge and Plymouth cars. Just like driving our old MoPars takes us back in time, these old commercials can really transport you to another (simpler!) era. Enjoy!
1956 Plymouth Radio Ads
These radios ads for the 1956 JET AGE Plymouths are some of the many on our hold button. You’ll hear some of the best Plymouth musical jingles in these great spots.
1950 DeSoto Tv Ad
1951 DeSoto Tv Ad
Another great early taped DeSoto spot with an entirely new singing jingle, Love this spot!
1935 Dodge Radio Ad
Fantastic 1935 live radio ad for Dodge.
1953 Plymouth DeSoto Used Car TV ad
I love this spot...Plymouth and DeSoto dealerships were often under one roof, this spot selling quality used cars on their behalf. Just looking at that used car selection makes me want to cry…where are they all now!
1955 Chysler Corp "Forward Look" TV ad
Very cool animated TV spot for the 1955 Chrysler forward look cars.
1957 Chrysler Corp "New Shape of Motion" TV ad
For the 1957 Chrysler family of cars, a great and classic old spot.
1955 DesSoto TV ad directed towards women
I just love this ad! The 1955 DeSoto as advertised towards women. This was a big push at Chrysler Corp in ’55 and ’56. Women were gaining a lot of buying power and Chrysler wanted to influence the ladies. Case in point: the fabulous Dodge “La Femme” for 1955 and 1956.
Check out the drawings of the '54 Chryslers in this ad promoting the first year of the Virgil Exner designed "FORWARD LOOK" cars.
1956 DodgePush Button Drive TV ad
"How do you drive a Magic Car?" you’ll find out in this '56 Dodge ad!
1960 Plymouth animated TV ad
A rare two minute long spot fot the 1960 Plymouths.
1953 DeSoto Groucho Marx Show "Safety" TV ad
DeSoto sponsored the Groucho Marx hosted “You Bet Your Life” show on NBC TV through much of the 1950’s. Here’s a live spot for the 1953 DeSotos pushing safety checks.
1955 DeSoto "GROUCHO SENT ME”" TV ad
By 1955 the spots on the Groucho show were fully taped, no longer live. Dig that crazy "GROUCHO SENT ME" jingle! Smartest of the Smart Cars!
