'57 Chevrolet Newspaper Ad
IT LIKES TO FLEX THOES BIG NEW MUSCLES !
This is the black and white version of the color magazine ad shown above. They are two distinct pieces of art. Back then newspapers could not reproduce photography or halftone art as well as they do today so this art was prepared in the same style as other Chevy art meant for newspapers. The original pencil drawing was used for both. I have no idea which came first but it was probably the magazine color ad.
