Great Car Commercials–1973 Chrysler New Brougham

Today we’re a commercial that had the chutzpah to a 1973 Chrysler New Yorker with the NASA Apollo module used to transport from the Earth to the moon. My under the ad.

0:00 – In a of airbrushed models and polished, spokespeople, it’s a bit jarring to this ad spokesman, with his face and gravelly voice. they were going for the Cronkite gravitas?

0:02-0:08 – What was he idly flipping random Was he doing the same thing in before Apollo 13? Where’s security during all this?

get him out of there!

0:08 – Ah, now running down the really features of this marvel of It’s got an electronic ignition a reclining seat, a digital Yes, these were the that made Apollo it’s a good thing for our program that the Soviets have access to the infinite of reclining seats and digital

Gee, I wonder where going with this.

– Oh, the Apollo command is welded into a single And so are Chrysler/Plymouths? Sold!

0:24 This is a unit body flies! Catchy. I’m not why this wasn’t the official slogan during the 1970s.

– Of course you can’t one of these (Apollo command But you can have one of these (1973 New Yorker Brougham). This deserves honored status in the Hall of Fame. You can’t a space craft, so here’s a New Brougham.

Oh, thanks.

0:35 – Now running down the similarities the Apollo and the New Yorker. Boy, I did not see coming. Oh, I see. The Brougham has a unit-body construction, electronic and a reclining seat.

You can even get a clock, if you wanna. Wow, like Apollo !

I’m that an earlier version of script included the line, like Apollo, the New Yorker is from metal, can accommodate passengers, and was made in the 20th

0:50 – But who wants to a car for more than 500,000 Well, Volvo 240 owners.

I that he’s being but the casual dismissal of the car’s to last for 500,000 miles a bit odd to modern ears. And how many of have you seen around And by lately, I mean in the last 20

0:53 – Chrysler New ; extra care in engineering. It a difference!

Right. Perhaps too cynical, but I don’t think of the of the New Brougham as a triumph of engineering. that extra engineering netted a little bonus on the vinyl roof.

Perhaps the remarkable thing about ad is how dated it feels, and just how the Apollo program benefits the comparison. Just think–we going to the moon with developed in a age where cars these were produced, and commercials like these normal.

Just for the record, and all snark it should surprise exactly no one I’m drawn irresistibly to New Yorker. I’d buy one in a second and bore my friends with comparisons to the Apollo command
