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.

When you live in South America, you know that a quality automobile should leave the factory with wet-sanding between each coat of paint. Racy lines should come as standard, and so should a trusty torsion bar suspension, deep-piled carpeting and wide foam seats. Floating to 62mph in just 25 seconds using 1/3 more horsepower than that of any small car, now that’s something! Discover for yourself the thrill of driving this fine car.


Let your friendly Toyota dealer show you the stylish 1962 Toyopet Tiara!
