1956 Ford Victoria Television Commercial

This short television advertisement was presented before the regular showing of the Ford Theatre program and features a 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. Master-Guide power steering is the main focus of this advertisement although the big news in '56 was the adoption of the 12 volt electrical system across the Ford line. Lifeguard safety features were also briefly mentioned but never materialized as a major selling point.
