Default The Classic Advertisement/Brochure Thread.

Automotive literature is immensely collectible. So much so, that there have been many eBay auctions of late pertaining to Indian car brochures. Here are a few of them I recently came across.

Premier booklets from the 80s.











Premier Dodge trucks.

Great pictures Karlos!

I remember some of the Dodge and GM brochures used in my marketing classes. The product focus was so great those days that there used to be no masala in the advertisements. Some of the best advertisements from those times!

No no, not weird. I remember this used to be called the Deluxe BU. And then people would fit a Super King AC in it. Way cool then...

And the car? It was built like a tank!
