Commerical for the the 50′s Ford Convertible with Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. (Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz)
Video Rating: 4 / 5
Was this made in 1957? Anyway thats cool
43 seconds (give or take) for a mechanical automatic top in the 50′s? I would say quite revolutionary for its time.
Ford man for life. Great car!
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.
“so simple a woman can do it”! eek
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…
Thank you for uploading this piece of Lucy history.
If only we had shows like this still, just clean cut comedy. This was Great. THANKU SO MUCH-SWEET & SHORT.
