Loving the casual sexism in the Australian Hillman Hunter ad.  Must say, masculinity is not really and attribute that springs to mind.

Loving the supercharged Bel Air on standard drum brakes as well, bet that was terrifying when a roo jumped out on you at night.  Interesting that the prices are in Australian pounds, must have been just before the dollar came in.  The Aussie pound was always pegged slightly below sterling presumably to try to keep exports competitive.

Decimal currency (Dollars and cents) was introduced in '66, but there was a time when pounds and dollars were being used at the same time. As shown in this Vauxhall HA Viva advert from April of that year:

Some great old Capri stuff there.

I have this to add, from 1972.  First pic looks like a shot from a film like Easy Rider.

The ad above is from the early 70s.  But what's amazing is that the Capri is still around 49 years later and was on Ebay either last year or in 2019.  Pics from Ebay ad.
