Oh, That Wonderful Technicolor!

I love this ad for the 1955 Chevrolet.  The colors are so bright and distinct.  43 different interior styling choices!  WOW!  Can you imagine getting a car with an interior that colorful today?  Now you are lucky if you get a choice of gray, tan or black.  Sometimes any more you only get to choose between two.  Such dull, unimaginative colors.  I had a couple of cars in the past (around 10 years ago or so) that were early 1990s models and had red interior.  I loved it that it wasn't something just like everyone else had.  My current car?  Boring gray.  Oh well.

Check out this short ad for the 1955 Chevrolet, you'll be wishing that you car was a vibrant as the one in the ad for sure!

Have a great Monday!  I finally got to an auction over the weekend, and I've got a couple of new fun things to share.  I'll try to get pictures tonight so that I can share them tomorrow!


  1. Oh I love this!!! Brings it all Dad was a car salesman and sold Chevys during this time period. He had 'new' ones all the time because they would be sold as demos! I remember them from '55 to '62. My favourite one was a red and white '57 Chevy. Thanks for the memories.

  2. I'll take one in turquoise please! haha Hmmm that might be a reason to take grandma car shopping just to hear her askin a 2011 salesman for the interior in "coral pink" haha!

  3. Sigh oh for a time when even the stuff of daily life had true style!
