Nice find. A much simpler sales pitch for a simpler time.
The fact that the V8 is only $25 more is pretty neat too!

I wonder what a fresh 1941 Torpedoback buyer would think if he were transported forward in time and given a 2006 Bonneville SSEi.
What would his review be like?
Well, after he finished thinking "wtf??? how did I get from 1941 to 2006?? I thought cars would fly by now.....When did America turn into a bunch of PC wusses, HOW MUCH did you say a gallon of gas was ????"
LMAO @ chevytodd.
I'm going to have to come back and watch the rest. I just couldn't get past 4.5 minutes. It was uncomfortable to watch.
i always have strange thoughts, including say, what if someone could time travel from that time period into current times, and pop into a modern car. I wonder what their thoughts would be? I mean,the space efficiency obviously is far superior to back then, and just the basic design o an interior vs today's elaborate design. I don't mean tech, i just mean aesthetics! Strange thought by jack handy here.
I wonder where a film of this type (it's like an infomercial) would have been viewed in 1940/41, since TV broadcasting was very sparse pre-WWII. Maybe in movie theatres as a "short", but did they really make the entire audience sit through all 14 minutes to get to the feature? Maybe with the girls, the troops would appreciate it, but when this was made, we had not really entered the war yet.

Wouldn't You Really Rather Have A Buick?
14 minutes may not have been perceived to be as long a period of time as it is now.
Older relatives tell me that our attention spans are not as. ..
1941 Man: How do they expect me to sit in there with my hat on? Why are there no bumpers on this car? Where is Little Molly going to sit with no front middle seat? How do they expect to put luggage for a family of 6 in this trunk?
Why is there no spare tire?
Space efficiency under the hood would easily be interpreted as impossible to work to do maintenance. (Depending on the vehicle: Why is there no battery under the hood?)
