In the photo gallery above, check out screenshots from an old 1947 commercial for the new 1948 Oldsmobile, titled "Ahead Automatically."

Once again, Lansing entered the nation's consciousness as they kept crankin' and rollin' out newer, improved Oldsmobiles. These little one-minute ads worked...they were seen not only during television's early days, but in theaters as well.

Enjoy this hunk of Lansing & national auto history with the short photo gallery above and then watch the complete commercial in the video below!
