“41 out of 50 rated Monarch’s performance superior…”

Did you know that in a test of “handling and driving-comfort” Mercury Monarch beats a Mercedes? Well, now you do. The spot below aired in May of 1975.

Like me, you’ll recognize the actor in this commercial from various film and TV appearances. Unlike me, you may be able to name him. Feel free to let me know.

*Update: Astute reader, Michael Lane has identified the actor as Arthur Hill.

    I believe it’s Arthur Hill. Lots of TV, for sure, including Owen Marshall:Counselor at Law. Also, “The Andromeda Strain” film.
