The Ranch has been featured in many television commercials and print Ads over the past few decades.
From Amoco to Castrol, from Allstate to Astelin, the Ranch has been the backdrop. Even to this day many commercials are shooting on the Ranch. Please select from a clip to view, and see if you can spot what parts of the lot were used.
Not only was the Ranch featured in TV Shows, movies and commercials, but also in print media.
Below are a few print ads from unknown magazines advertising 1964 Ford Motor cars. Ford was one of the major Television Sponsors at the time. Many of their vehicles were used in shows, and thus their advertisements were usually filmed on the Ranch.
Another major Sponsor of several shows filmed by Columbia's Screen Gems Division on the Ranch, was Chevrolet . Which also shot numerous advertisements on the Lot, including their print Ads.
Chevrolet even went as far as to have several concept Ad layouts photographed on the Ranch. These were preliminary layouts to show their new cars. Many of the final versions did not feature the Ranch but it is neat to see the concept ones with some familiar backgrounds.
The Ranch was also featured in many other ads, including some recent ones. Below are some ads for Bell Telephone from 1976, Scott's Turf from 2008 and Home Depot also from 1976.
