Six serious reasons for owning a fun-to-drive AMC Gremlin X. (Feb, 1978)

It’s interesting how much more reliable cars have gotten since this time. The fact that a company would advertise the fact they had a 12 year 12,000 mile warranty is kind of sad. And this is AMC, not company that was particularly famous for reliability. Current warranty terms from auto-makers implies abit more confidence in their products.

Six serious reasons for owning a fun-to-drive AMC Gremlin X.

1. Good performance and fuel economy is provided by the peppy 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed gear box. EPA estimated mileage ratings: 35 highway; 22 city; 27 combined.*

2. Sporty Levi’s® fabric bucket seats.

3. Extra width to give you plenty of road-hugging stability plus interior room and comfort.

What Transportation Means to Civilization (Apr, 1923)

What Transportation Means to Civilization

Civilization is the result of interchange of individual thought and the product of thought.

This interchange depends entirely on transportation.

MARMON 34 (Apr, 1918)

I’d never heard of the Marmon Car Company before seeing this ad. I really hope their catalog was called “The Book of Marmon”.

MARMON 34

Advanced Engineering

The new 4-Door Sedan is a practical family car for all seasons. In pleasant weather the lowered windows give the effect of an open car; when raised on stormy days, they shut out all discomforts. This serviceable model is in full accord with the utilitarian spirit of today.

1100 pounds lighter

Style note for Spring (Apr, 1939)

“IT’S the style this year to have a car you can see out of.”

It’s true. However cool looking they may have been, totally opaque cars had abysmal safety records.

Style note for Spring

IT’S the style this year to have a car you can see out of. And in the Buick pictured here, the total glass area has been increased 412 square inches — all safety plate glass — with 30 per cent more area in the windshield alone. That increased visibility gives you a view of the traffic — and the world around you—that’s a new note in safety too in General Motors cars this year Add to this the honest craftsmanship, the solid comfort and silent security you get in Body by Fisher — add the convenience and protection of Fisher No Draft Ventilation and you’ll know why smart motorists say . . . “For ’39, better pick the car with Body by Fisher,” which means a General Motors car of course.

This is a true Air-line Car; therefore Beautiful (May, 1934)

This is a true Air-line Car; therefore Beautiful

Efficient streamlining is always beautiful. It is no accident that the swiftest birds are always the most graceful

PROFESSOR ALEXANDER KLEMIN
Director, Daniel Guggenheim School of Aeronautics, New York City, says, “Smooth lines and improved visual appearance are associated with Hupmobile’s reduced air resistance.”

Many have talked about it.

Some have tried to achieve it. But, in the opinion of most authorities, only Hupp has built it… the true Aero-dynamic car… a car that inevitably combines rare beauty and new efficiency.
