“I AM THE CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING KING”
Years ago– I had a car dealer in Canada for an ad agency client.
We did some great advertising for him.
But here’s a story…
He had this big black Lincoln on the showroom floor that just would not move. It was his last one. The new models were on the way.
I said, “Let me take a crack at it.” So I wrote the classified ad below. He ran it one day (Sunday) and said his phone was ringing off the hook for the car. He even said someone at his church said they “saw the ad and it sounded like a nice car.”
The car sold the next week. Take at look at the ad below. You’ll see why the car sold so quickly.

P.S. Here is that classified ad for the car guy. It had 350 words. And it did the job.
1998 Lincoln Continental.
This is the car that has been outselling Cadillac all over the county. Why? Because is such a fine car. The light grey interior is beautiful with leather everywhere; seats, steering wheel, arm rests. And this Lincoln has power locks, windows, mirrors, and seat adjustments that give your aching back perfect comfort. And the seats are heated. How’s that for yummy? The Dolby sound system is fabulous for any radio station, cassette or CD you wish to play. The dash board indicators is like a space age cock pit, telling you miles per gallon, miles to empty, and so many other details you’d think the Lincoln has a computer on board. And you’d be right. It makes driving almost worry free. It has a huge amount of trunk space that can hold 9 sets of golf clubs. And it has a keyless entry system right on the door so you can’t lock yourself out.
It has bright, bright cornering lamps to illuminate any turn and too may other features to list here. It comes complete with a 80,000 km warranty. Plus, a 4-year FREE maintenance agreement. The front wheel drive on this Lincoln means snow and ice is no problem compared to other cars. And get this: This is a $56,000 car. But it’s our last one so we’ve cut the price to $49,000 and the manufacturer has agreed to a $5,000 rebate. That means you pay only $44,000 for an amazing driving machine that’s sure to give you years and years of driving pleasure. We suggest you bring $2,000 down. But, we’ll try to work out whatever arrangements you want. But you must hurry. It is rare to find a deal this good. And we only have one. You can see this car at the Royal Ford show room across from the Holiday Inn on Broadway in Yorkton. Most of our other cars are indoors at the West Broadway Mall. But this shiny black Lincoln was too special to move over there. Decide now to own this fine, fine automobile. Royal Ford, Yorkton. (306) 555-2261
