The late 1970s and 1980s were a striving time: The cell-phone was invented, people tried their first rides on rollerblades and milk was delivered to your doorstep. To better reimagine how life was like back in that time, watch our three selected historical advertising videos from Mercedes-Benz Vans in the 1970s and 1980s. The advertising showed us early on: From the dealer to the consumer with the Mercedes-Benz transporter.
Versatile vans for every business: Already in 1967 Mercedes-Benz vans proofed to be reliable partners. Clear lines, pleasant curves and a distinctive face: this series cab was attractive at first sight. Whether on construction sites or the airport, whether to transport trees, tools or groceries: The L 406 D, L 508 D and the L 608 D come out more adaptable than ever in this advertising video.
A German marketplace in 1977: Various marketers tell their stories of how they use their Mercedes-Benz vans in this advertising. They all have to meet very specific challenges in their day-to-day work. The great advantage of the short-hood cab is explained in this advertising: It would be impossible to create a more comfortably entry for a transporter.
Modern and elegant: in 1977, those words summarized the impression conveyed by Mercedes-Benz’ latest transporter. This advertising shows the broad use of the so-called T 1 “Bremer”: as a transport vehicle for passengers, as a carrier of clothes rail for fashion or as a transporter for heavy machinery.
