  • 1963 R-2 Ad

    I ran across this ad. I liked the FLASH Safety Belts at the bottom

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

    This is real interesting. I have a similar ad, but they changed the copy. They cut out all the "hot rod jive talk" in the one you posted!

        Bet you could fairly easily compile a list of which ad appeared in which publications of the day!

            did they really run a 4-door R-2 Super Lark to 132mph (as implied in the ads)?

                Here's a TV commercial on the Supers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVziZ...eature=related
                In the commercial they pose a pillared coupe, which makes sense, since it's the lightest body.

                The Lark body style is unclear, even in this longer promo, where it is seen in the background, next to the Hawk:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVziZ...eature=related

                Perhaps they pictured the 4-door in the print ad to emphasize that the performance option extends through the entire model range.

                    A curiosity of those ads has always been the tire size referenced: 6.50X15, with no asterisk to indicate that doesn't mean the Hawk. Factory literature and ordering information indicates that 6.70X15 tires were the only size available on the Hawks. Of course, you could order optional whitewalls, Nylon 500s, or even captive-air tires, but they were still 6.70X15 on Hawks![:0] BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."
