  • Product Description


    LIFE Magazine was the periodical where new products were test out. This 1968 VW Sedan ad shows how the company was trying to break into a new market and compete directly with station wagons.  This is the original ad that appeared in an authentic LIFE Magazine from 1969. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.  

    The ubiquitous American station wagon of the 1960's had room for the whole family and all their stuff. VW tried to present their bus as a direct competitor but it was rather large and boxy. Ads for the VW Bus all but admitted it would be rather hard to convince everyone in the family that it was what they needed. As a result, they introduced the Sedan, which is a station wagon, just not called by that name. See that text in the ad to learn more!

    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.
