Ford really loved those MPG’s in 1975!

Ford MPG's

I spotted this print advert whilst browsing around the Click Americana website. It didn’t stand out because of the cars but rather the unusual method used to advertise them – the potential miles per gallon in comparison to other leading vehicles of the time.

If you knew that you were saving hundreds of dollars on the sticker price AND getting better mileage, would you have bought the Ford Pinto instead of a VW Beetle, Toyota Corona, Audi Fox or the Mazda 808? Perhaps a better look at the Pinto is required?

I think I’d prefer the Mustang!
