    43 seconds (give or take) for a mechanical automatic top in the 50′s? I would say quite revolutionary for its time.

    I know that Pontiac sponsored I. L.L. I didn’t know that Ford was also a sponsor.

    No doubt, this car it´s one of the nicest ford ever produced out of the assembling line. Why don´t they make them again? If they did, I would be the first one to purchase one of them over any other car on the market. Imagine a car like that, with newer gadgets of today´s technology? Lighter engines, perhaps an aluminum block to make the car lighter, swifter transmision, four wheel disc brake etc.

    Of course, Desi got one of these for appearing in this ad; Ford sponsored the first season of “LUCILLE BALL-DESI ARNAZ SHOW” specials [later rebroadcast as "THE LUCY-DESI COMEDY HOUR"] in the 1957-’58 season, and I believe this was one of the “integrated” spots they appeared in during one of those five specials…
