..........ABOUT THIS ITEM..........
(Ad for sale is shown in the 1st photo. Any discoloration in the upper half is due to the flash on plastic sleeve unless otherwise noted. Ad is standard magazine size.)

From March 1961. This is a real stroll down memory lane for any car gal or guy! You love to shop on Etsy, here's an excuse - get a gift for someone! Perfect for an office, garage or den.

Based on our Vintage Condition Grade Scale below: WELL-KEPT
(Of note, the paper has slight wrinkling, otherwise incredible shape. Grade is our humble opinion, please review enlarged photo and chart, below!)

..........ABOUT OUR ADS..........
All of our ads are authentic vintage, not reproductions - a unique bit of history all your own! We package your ad in a sturdy chipboard sheet and an archival crystal clear sleeve with adhesive flap. Although you can display it this way by propping it up on a shelf, for example, the chipboard is not archival, so you may not want to store your ad that way permanently. (The oak frame you see in one of the photos was purchased at WalMart for $3, the matting was just $1!)

..........VINTAGE CONDITION GRADE..........
We primarily sell vintage/antique based on kitsch, sentimental and artistic value, not condition because 1) condition is subjective and 2) wear and aging often makes a vintage/antique item look even better. As a result, the purchase price is based on the rarity/collectibility of the item, rather than it's condition.

Please refer to the photograph to judge an item's condition for yourself. We also include a grade and the chart below to help guide you in decision making, and will mention anything that stands out to us, just in case it isn't visible enough in the photo.

We retrieve magazines from all sorts of places, sometimes they are in super shape, sometimes they are in very poor condition but an ad is too wonderful to discard - and we feel sorry for it! We draw the line at many (rips, holes, stains unrelated to age) and try to upcycle them in other ways, but we offer some ads in poor condition at very low prices just to put them in the hands of someone who will treasure them as-is.

Our grading scale:

There may be more serious discoloring from age, and/or water damage in a large, noticeable area that is stained, and/or paper is warped badly, and/or wrinkle or crease in paper, and/or bent/folded corner(s). But, we love it and you might too.
There may be discoloring from age, minor water stain(s), and/or paper is warped, and/or has bent corner(s). A more rough-around-the-edges vintage/antique look.
There may be discoloring from age, and/or slight warping, and/or slightly bent corner(s), but really nice; nothing out of the "norm" for vintage.
This is a vintage item in impressive condition. It has few flaws or even no flaws, but may be discolored with age so we aren't saying it's new.
This is a vintage item in new condition. If we say new, we mean new, as in, it looks like we took it off a store shelf and sold it to you way back in the "olden days."
