Here are some relatively recent yet noteworthy ads from July 1988 and November 1989 issues of the Indian Auto Journal.

My God, the Montana !! I had eagerly gone to the showroom, first day first show, to check out the car !
This ad now makes me feel like a classic myself.

Default Some people own cars! Some Cars own people!

The above catchline of the Plymouth 1960 says it all.

It says that Plymouth 1960 is so solid that you will spend only very little to keep it. That too with a V-8

I am sure many here in TBHP would not mind giving an arm to own one of these now.

This advert was from readers Digest of 1959 the year I was born.

I somehow missed this post.
Commers were quite common in India, but a different model. This was the commercial vehicles marque of the Rootes Group which ended up with Chrysler. In India they sold a lot of station wagon like vehicles based on the 1950's Hillman Minx. Most were driven to the ground, there was one in Pune with Das, probably abandoned by a customer. In my school too there was one.
And there was a "Matchbox" version as a milkfloat, and a larger Corgi/ Dinky model too. I too have one and would really have to hunt to dig it out as I do not play with them anymore.


Cheers harit

Most of us also remember Fargo trucks, a brand name from Chrysler. These were also quite popular in showrooms in the 1950's and were mainly marketed by Premier Automobiles Ltd.

These models were a common sight till the 1970's on the roads but more of them were badged as Dodge.

Hey Harit, do you have old matchbox and corgi scale models ? I have loads of them, a set of "Commer" vans too - in four bodystyles - Milk van, School bus, Circus Van, and Coke van !
Do dig out whatever you have - they're priceless . I'd love to see your babies..
