LIFE Magazine featured its fair share of unique advertisements. This is certainly one of the most unique that appeared in 1962. This is the original ad that appeared in LIFE Magazine! Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
Most people can't remember that last time they ran out of gas. But in 1962 when this iconic ad appeared, the transportation infrastructure that exists today was in its infancy. Gas stations-- ubiquitous today -- were far more scarce, so running out of fuel could happen to anyone. At least the VW Bug was light and easy to push, so long as you weren't pushing it uphill!
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.
