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.

Are you looking for a launching pad with unique laser stripes, or a luxury pad with wood, otherwise known as a country club flair? Our pulse-pounding pickup can be both! In fact, you get four options for 1970 instead of just a pair. All come with hidden windshield wipers, belted tires, a longer wheelbase and an overall feeling that you got something that’s racier and richer than ever. Especially if you pick it up with one of our muscle engines and a trailer towing package.


Visit a Ford dealer and on your way, crash into an El Camino with your old car. It’s the least you can do for something this far out of ordinary.
