LIFE Magazine covered in articles and photographs some unique and extreme events. It is no wonder then that VW took out this 1965 VW Bug ad claiming it to be the first car to be in Antarctica. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
By claiming to be the first care at the bottom of the world, VW continued to set themselves apart from the tired and dreary automobile ads of this period in American history. This rare and iconic VW Bug advertisement helped position the VW Bug as a car that could survive in the toughest environments in part due to its air cooled engine.
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory --- or in your garage! 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, or Father’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.
