Before They Were Beaters: Stalker Edition

This relic from the old car ad collection shows just how much automobile advertising has changed over the years. Before Sync technology and stability control could be flaunted to the potential customer, the Big 3 had two back pocket aces: burgundy and a material called velour.

Aside from what's being sold, what the hell is going on here? Why is that ghost man haunting the new '74 Birds? Why is that lady OK with it? Why Burgundy?
