The Entire 1969 Pontiac Car Lineup On The Back of A Train

‘Don’t get left behind. See your Pontiac dealer and breakaway.’ This is the strapline from this old Pontiac commercial, but the main draw here is the famous actors of the time – Mike Mazurki, Elisa Cook Jr., Lon Chaney Jr., Robert Strauss, Broderick Crawford, Leo Gorcey, voiceover by Paul Richards and of course the trainload of classic Pontiacs, the whole 1969 lineup.

The commercial doesn’t just show Pontiac vehicles at the height of their powers, but it’s also a great way to see how vehicles were advertised back in the day. A much more fun viewpoint with a nice happy jingle over the top of it all. Obviously you have to gloss over the point of people digging holes and doing hard labour in the middle of the searing desert heat.


Wouldn’t it have been great if all the other car makers of the time copied this commercial. Even better, having Ford, Dodge and GM make their own modern interpretation. I wonder who they would get these days to play the modern day convicts??
