Classic Ford GB ads of the 70s and 80s

Post by Steve Saxty » Fri Mar 22, 2019 11:55 am

I’ve just lost 15 minutes of my life watching these Ford TV ads made by ad agency Ogilvy & Mather. They were given to me by Terry Holben who directed Ford’s ads for 22 years and wrote about the experience in my book. Take a look at them here as Ford pitched us RS, Capri, Cortina, Sierra, Granada and Fiesta.

Fun back story – the first with Peter Duncan of Blue Peter fame was insured by Terry Holben’s dash to the hospital for the birth of his first child.
