1959 GMC PICKUP TRUCK AD
Text from ad above.
The biggest engineering, design and quality-control program in truck history is bringing you a new breed of trucks . . . the kind of trucks farmers themselves asked us to build!
Look at the tailgate of a GMC pickup. It's built to stand tip under back-breaking weights without sagging. Look at the finish. 4 coats instead of 2 or 3 prevent rusting. Look at the front crossmember and rear axle. They're built tougher to take dirt-road ruts and ditches right in stride. Look at the engine. High-torque GMC Six and V-8 engines out-pull others with less engine wear. Anyway you look at GMC "Farm-Bred Trucks," they're better built to do any farm job better. And, they offer you something more-a sense of quiet pride that goes with owning and driving the best pickup money can buy. Let your GMC Dealer show you what we mean.

Make the "tailgate test" Hook just one side of the tailgate of a GMC. Note how two men on the unhooked corner can't make it sag. Try it yourself! GMC Pickups are competitively priced-but that's where their similarity with other trucks ends. You get many dollars extra in standard equipment!
