Even then dealers would try and separate a customer from his money...The $15 for a wash, polish and wax must have been one fine job when you consider what the OD, heater and radio cost in comparison. Why it would be wanted or needed on a new car is another question.
Per the CPI inflation calculator, $15 in 1949 would be equivalent to $150 today. I hope they weren't expecting a tip.
