There are classic adverts and dated adverts, and then there's this. 

Taken straight from the oldest school imaginable, the corny voiceover and black and white grainy footage show off some of the features on "the most talked about car" of the age...apparently! What once counted for cheesy marketing speak still very much applies, but you do get plenty of info on the car. I never knew you could get out of the "parking line" with 35 inches clearance! And an amazing 36 different seat position, I don't know why the whole world didnt have one!
