Post by jay » Wed Dec 04, 2019 6:30 pm

At one time, Glen owned this beautiful car. It was used in a photoshoot with Glen and Bobbie Gentry.

Glen Campbell and a 1947 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty

Post by jay » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:29 am

Now, this may have been Glen's car! From all the car pictures we see Glen in, in the late 50's...this is one he may have been able to afford. Many thanks to the folks at the Antique Automobile Club of America for helping me ID it.

Glen Campbell and a 1954 Ford Crestline

Post by jay » Sun Nov 24, 2019 9:19 am

I would love to know more about this picture. Maybe it was taken out by Sandia Mountain? Who was Glen with? The car is as interesting. The Ford Crestline was only made for 3 years. It was the most expensive Ford you could buy from '52-'54.

Glen Campbell and a '56 TBird

Glen Campbell as he smiles and leans against his car, a 1956 Ford Tbird, in 1978. Sorry about the size.

Glen and Debby Campbell with a 1957 Mercury Montclair

Post by jay » Sat Nov 23, 2019 11:14 am

This picture was taken in Albuquerque. I have been to its location. Debby was born in 1956, so if this was Glen's car, it would have been close to new when this picture was taken.

Glen Campbell and a 1942 Mercury

Post by admin » Sat Nov 23, 2019 9:58 am

This is another early picture of Glen with a Mercury. This is 1942 Mercury. I am assuming Glen is 17 in this picture, give or take a year. I also believe this was taken in New Mexico.

Glen Campbell and a 1953 Mercury Monterey

Post by admin » Sat Nov 23, 2019 9:47 am

I found this picture of Glen and the caption reads that he is 16 years old and this is his first car. Glen was born in 36, so he would have been 16 in 1952. To the best of my recollection, the big three always released the new models in the fall. So....Glen could be 16 and stand in front of a 53 Merc. I doubt very seriously it was his first car. I would believe the 1942 Mercury would have been Glen's car at 16.

Glen and a Datsun 240Z(?)

Post by KMFrye54 » Wed Nov 20, 2019 5:57 pm

Those sure like they were shot for print ads. Was Datsun a sponsor of the Goodtime Hour in 71-72? Near as I can tell, both cars are 71 or 72 models. Add in the golfers and the outfit Campbell's dressed in and you have definite lifestyle statement made here.

Still, wonderful to see, as I lusted after the 240z (in orange, naturally!) from the day it came out. In our town $3499 would buy you one in 1970, but that was simply not attainable to a High school kid earning about $15 a week in those days.
