In 1959 the television screens were filled with great westerns that have now become TV classics.

From the Cartwrights on Bonanza to the Barkleys on The Big Valley, from Lucas and Mark McCain on The Rifleman to Matt, Kitty, and the rest on Gunsmoke, if you couldn't find a great western on your old black-and-white in 1959, well, you just weren't trying.

So of course with the huge popularity of that genre', why not have the star's get off the covered wagon or the horse and have them sell car's?

That's just what they did, as you can see in this great vintage commercial with the cattle drive guys from Wagon Train pitching us the brand new 1959 Ford.
