LIFE Magazine was the premier magazine for cutting edge advertising companies to show their stuff. This VW Bug ad from 1966 is proof, as VW graphically showed that its car is not suited for everyone...particularly the very tall! Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
In this rare and iconic VW Bug advertisement, none other than the late, great, and beloved basketball star Wilt Chamberlain. At 7'1", there was no way Wilt Chamberlain could fit in this VW Bug. But VW used this fact to point out that the car can actually fit taller people, just not the tallest among us.
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory --- or in a sports 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, 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.
