Avanti ad

Recommended Posts

A friend saw my car for the first time and told me about a TV commercial he saw as a kid.  He was about 15 in 1963 and he remembers it vividly.

No music, camera in the front yard of a suburban house, a family of 4 opens the front door and walks out to the drive.  They get into their Avanti, turn on the engine, then back out into the street.  The car explodes off the line with spectacular sounds and accelerates like crazy down the street into the distance.  Words come up that say "Avanti, 180 miles per hour with four people"

I mentioned that the record it set at the time was 171 MPH, but he was adamant that the ad said 180.
