LIFE Magazine featured its fair share of unique advertisements, particularly in 1962. This advertisement shows a blurry image of the bug to convey the idea of motion, and passing air. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
During this era, VW cars were air-cooled. As such the cars did not have radiators and could not "overheat" as other cars could. It was a fact that VW wanted to convey in this ad that outlines all of the features of a VW that make it care-free in comparison to other vehicles.
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory or in a restaurant or bar! Since the ad is the original from an authentic and rare LIFE Magazine, you can rest assured of its unique value! This is a perfect birthday, holiday, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gift! Personalize this gift by including a certificate of authenticity with your special message.
The LIFE Magazine ad itself measures approximately 10.5″ x 13.5″ and it surrounded by a white professional framing mat cut to this ad’s specifications. The total area of the advertisement and the mat measures 15.75” x 19.7” and looks fantastic. The handsome and contemporary dark-brown frame itself is a high-quality medium-density fiberboard (MDF) with shatterproof plexiglass.
As an ad taken from an original magazine from the stated date, the ad may show signs of aging. As a collector’s item, all sales are final and returns are not accepted.
