1961 Fairlane, Biscayne, Valient, Savoy, F85, Lancer & Wagons Comparison Sheets

These are little dealer items that look like they were used by the sales people to compare the comet to the competition. It's funny how one phamlet praises that the comet is bigger than the competition and in another praises how it is smaller!

Consumer Reports, March 1961
