Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.


Do you like all sorts of spirits and hanging out in the woods during those warm weeks in early autumn? Do you prefer your birds shot and in a bag? Even if those Hungarian Grouse manage to outsmart you somehow, your Irish Setter won’t know the difference as long as you keep his keen nose busy. But what takes you to the game is what we wanted to talk about in the first place. The Wasp. An outstandingly beautiful four-door with reclining seats and twin-travel beds. Find comfort and economy in your traveling motel.

Call Hudson soon because it’s 1955 and we already went defunct.
