Here is a 1970 national Plymouth ad for the 1970 AAR 'Cuda.  It must have appeared before the start of the season because it talks about Plymouth having a lot of catching up to do.  The paint job on the race car is not the same as when they raced it during the season.  To read the copy, see the larger version here: http://www.lhmopars.com/MOPAR_Ads/70aarad1.html

I forgot to put this one with the Challengers.  It is from a multi-page ad introducing the 1971 Dodge Scat Pack of performance cars and it appeared at new model year introduction time in the fall of 1970.  It introduces the 1971 Challenger T/A but when Chrysler decided not to race in the 1971 series, they didn't produce any T/A Challengers for the 1971 model year.  Note the 1971 style grill.  It looks like they used a color picture from the same photo shoot used in the 1970 ad (in reply #44 of this thread) for this ad and only changed it by airbrushing in the new grill for 1971.  Advertisers do this sort of thing all the time when there are only minor styling changes.

The second picture is the first page of the multi-paged ad it appeared in.

Now for Cougar

Here is an ad for Castrol featuring the 1967 Bud Moore prepared Mercury Cougar.  The copy leads me to believe it appeared early in 1967 before the Trans Am series began contesting races.  It states, "Dan Gurney will captain Team Cougar," and "Indy star Parnelli Jones will be the lead driver."  It also shows the entire 1967 series schedule.

Here is an ad for Autolite featuring two of the 1967 Bud Moore Mercury Cougars that appeared sometime in 1967.  The caption under the picture states, "For a big full color reproduction (12" x 16") of this and three other original paintings suitable for framing send$!1.00 to...."  Has anyone seen one of these large posters?

To read the copy and see a larger version see an aution on ebay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-Cougar-Autolite-Plug-OLD-AD-C-MY-STORE-4MORE-GREAT-ADS-5-FREE-SHIP-/310603699145?pt=Motors_Manuals_Literature&hash=item48516c53c9&vxp=mtr#ht_940wt_758

Here is a national Mercury ad for the 1967 Cougar Dan Gurney Special.  Apparently it came with a Dan Gurney signature decal among other special performance items.

And now, the Javelins

Amercan Motors (AMC) seemed to get the most advertising out of its participation in the Trans Am series.  There are several ads for the Javelin that talk about its involvment in the Trans Am between 1968 and 1972. 

This national ad from 1968 talks about how the Team Javelins didn't win the Trans Am race at Sebring International Raceway, Sebring,  Florida on March 23, 1968.

This national ad from 1968 talks about Team Javelins experience in the Trans Am race at War Bonnet Raceway, New Manford, Oklahoma on May 12, 1968, so it must have appeared shortly after that.

Here is a national ad from American Motors touting the 1970 Javelin SST Trans Am.  Only 100 were made in the special red, white, and blue paint scheme.  While I'm not sure, I think the ad appeared in the fall of 1969.  The fact that the 1969 Trans Am season was still being contested in the fall of 1969 would explain the appearance of the 1969 Kaplan Javelin in the ad.   After looking at this ad I just realized something I never noticed before.  The 100 specially painted 1970 Javelin SST's are painted the opposite of how the Penske race cars would run the 1970 season.  The production cars had a red front and blue back while the race cars had a blue front with red back.

Here is another national American Motors ad touting the 1970 Javelin SST and their hiring of Roger Penske and Mark Donohue.  The picture seems to have been taken at the 1970 Daytona 24 hour race.  This race took place on January 31st and February 1st of 1970, so the ad must have appeared sometime after that.

Here is a 1970 ad for Champion Spark Plugs featuring the 1970 Penske Javelin driven by Mark Donohue.  It talks about his win at the Marlboro 200 Trans Am race at Bridgehampton Race Circuit, Bridgehampton, New York on June 21, 1970, so it must have appeared in Car and Driver shortly after that.

Here is a national ad from American Motors for the 1970 Javelin that talks about their win at Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisonsin on July 19, 1970.  The ad in my collection appeared in Sports Illustrated.
