GK Chevrolet Of Downers Grove (Commercial, 1977)
Here's an extremely low budget commercial for GK Chevrolet in Downers Grove. It looks like someone's Super 8 home movies, and it isn't helped by a technical problem with the audio - the announcer keeps cutting out. Then he seems a bit lost. Finally, the last 15 seconds of the live read feature dead air with a clock plaintively ticking in the background.
GK Chevrolet is now Bill Kay Chevrolet - part of the Bill Kay Automotive Group - still at the same place, 1601 Ogden Avenue in Downers Grove - even has the same phone number, except the area code is now 630 of course. :-)
Voiceover by longtime WLS Channel 7 staff announcer Wayne Atkinson.
This aired on local Chicago TV a few days before 11-21-77.
