Default Mercury and Ford Promotional Films 1941

Jay Ward found this series. It's a pretty great compilation of Ford/Mercury promotional videos from 1941 that capture the selling points of the "big" new cars. Figured you fellas would enjoy it.... To read the rest of this blog entry from The Ford Barn, click here.

Nice to see those old films. Is it just me or do the women in those films seem more attractive than any of today's models, they just look so wholesome!
