It is decent size 36" x 25" and is printed on thin paper and has numerous creases and tears around the edges.  Color is still bright.

Seller said his mother brought it home from a dealership that was going to trash it and put it away where it was forgotten about.

I like the Super Chevrolet Service logo that has Prompt Dependable Quality on the banner above it.  So it must be a Chevrolet dealership.

Lower right corners reads " Poster 1190-7 Printed in U.S.A. Copyright 1968 by Merchandising Directors Inc 7338 Woodward Avenue Detroit Mich 48202.

This will look great on the garage wall, I am very pleased with my 40.00 purchase.  I am really like to retro advertising of the era.

Mike
I thought that was a Super Chevy logo but that was hard to tell thanks to the pixel limit. It is also larger than it appeared in the picture.
Good pick. Congrats!

Okay, I'll bite...
Did the seller give you any idea what car maker? What dealership?
What kind of paper stock is it printed on?
It looks like a limited three color print, as opposed to full color, widely distributed.
There is no info on the Web about Merchandising Directors Inc...
Here is a 1959 full color ad by GM Harrison Division:

X2 Look HERE.
I had the A/C system reconditioned on my 68 by a local company, but they are becoming few and far between.

Looks like you won't need a heater... and the rocker molding is not that expensive.
So, if the interior, chassis, and drivetrain look (and run) as good, I'd say Charley is quoting a fair price.

Hard to say, sight unseen.  Can you post some pictures?   Does it look original or have you checked numbers?
Go to Hagerty Valuation Tool for a quote.

And welcome! You can get some great information from some knowledgeable people here. But you have to help us help you....  Grin

It would be interesting to know why Evening Orchid... It looked fine on the larger Impala....  Huh

I'm fairly certain they also painted Malibu's that color in '65 as I recall seeing a few of them...  Smiley

You are correct,sir! On Malibu SS but not on El Camino. I'm not saying it is a bad color on Camaros. I just think it looked best on larger bodied models....
BTW, did Santa leave you enough cash to buy the Z you wanted? Grin

Merry Christmas to all from NC. Here we might get to drive our cars.
Rain clears out tonight and up to 50s by Christmas morning.  I say we go for it!

Hope you find what you want under the tree...



And what you need in your heart!


Thanks for another great year of First Gen education!

Thanks for posting it!  Grin
Of coarse the small block S/10 made the show...I knew somebody back in the day that built one what a POS that was.

That S-10 is a work in progress.  It has a 383 sb with 2 X 4 Tunnel Ram.  The front end is all bolted together, "flip" front end.
Never had much trouble making my S-10 go... stopping was the biggest problem.

Where are the burn-outs?!?!  Wink

Paul
Wendy would probably not let them come back, if they started a burn out contest....
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: cracked dash? on: December 17, 2014, 05:15:27 PM
I assume you mean the pad, since you described it as brittle.

Yes, a crack in the dash pad can be repaired, but unless it is in a vey inconspicuous place, it will show.  My 68 dash was brittle and cracking on both ends right at the top. The more I tried to repair it, the more cracks grew and showed.  Last year when I had some interior work done, I decided it was time to replace it.

I'm going to let some of the guys that do multiple restorations tell you where to buy....

Good luck in whatever you decide!  Grin
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: if you could go back and redesign the 67/8 .. or that other one, on: December 11, 2014, 02:17:08 PM
Hmm, I was thinking they had drag slicks even in the mid 60's. Wasn't big daddy's swamp rat around in the late 50's?

I was referring to PRODUCTION tires (the kind they designed the car around).  ;-0
Yep, what you got off the dealer lot had narrow bias-ply.  Wink

I have gun into the first snag,  posting pics  seems i cant just shove in the card into my cheapo camera -snap away and then post,  500mb limit,,,,,,?
 not only do i disdain sports like the cowpies,,, i got No patience with digital gizmos  or playing with them  The "smart" phones--when i see one of those dweebs get creamed by a bus when they are walking along twittling with their thumbs, i wont get any satisfaction..... but i also still wont understand them.
  so why do i not have any problems posting on a garden variety Vbulliten site,,, but little snooseville ones like this always seem to have some lame arrangement throwing up hurdles  for the U -technically inclined?Huh
Read THIS...  BTW, is "snooseville" a term of endearment in north Texas?

Darrell (Mr. 68)  I knew I could count on you to chime in here....

BTW it is still a well kept secret, nobody will claim they like 68's.... Cheesy

(but we know they do)    Wink
Wait a minute?!? There is someone who does not like 68's?
