1958 Buick – 35mm Salesman Training Filmstrips

 

Six rare 1958 Buick Salesman Training Filmstrips from GM Photographic. These were originally
35mm slide presentations, accompanied by a record with narration, and the occasional “beep”
is heard instructing the projectionist to move to the next slide. These filmstrips are not only a
must for 1958 Buick owners, but are also entertaining for automotive fans in that you can see
how these cars were marketed, and how Buick compared to their competition.

Note : Buick Salesman Training Filmstrips are original 35mm slide presentations (converted to film) that were designed to
train the sales force at a Buick dealership. There are no moving images within these presentations, it’s simply one slide at
a time, complete with narration, as well as the “beep” heard every few seconds to signal the slide projectionist to advance
to the next slide. These old slide presentations offer a fascinating look at how Buick sold their vehicles, their awareness
of their competitors, and what they considered their strongest selling points.
