Welcome to Magazine Monday. Today’s feature magazine is LOOK from June 13, 1967, the summer of love!
The cover makes no mention of the 9 pages of fun Disneyland stuff inside. The boating lady sure does LOOK like she is having fun.
In fact, the 9 pages of Disneyland stuff aren’t even mentioned in the index. As you LOOK thru these pages, you’ll realize this is just one big long advertisement for Disneyland.
The famous new Tomorrowland preview art, complete with a snap shot of the real PeopleMover. That orange juice looks yummy.
The Disneyland Sponsors each get full page layouts. Starting out with Kodak: “Take Disneyland home with you… on Kodak film”
This is my favorite ad from this set. This painting for Wurlitzer captures “1967” perfectly for me. Wouldn’t it be great to have the original art work?
“Take your mother to Disneyland” on United even if she looks like Sybil.
Frito Kid and Pecos Bill are the Happiest Pair in Frontierland. What a fantastic photo with the whole gang, and of course Fritos & Pepsi!
Santa Fe and Carnation share a page. “Tips for Teens” I bet that’s a fun read.
Global Van Lines checks in with the “Old and the New”. Since I’ve seen the old fashioned van in at least three locations at Disneyland, is it safe to say it was in running condition? What ever happened to it and was it a Bob Gurr creation? Wow, they actually drove a “Modern” moving van onto the hub area!
And here’s our lovely Disneyland Ambassador Marcia Minor offering us the “Summer ’67 at Disneyland” guide for only ¢25! These guides today go out for crazy $$$ on EBay. I still don’t have one. Here’s one that just closed at $59 (link). Or get one here for $106 (link). These guides are rare because they were not sold in the park, they were mail order only. I’m going to mail in this coupon with a quarter and see what happens.
Sadly, our tour of Disneyland has ended, now before we gaze at some swell vintage ads, here are a couple of oddities.
“Transparent Cover-ups” I predict these will become a huge success.
Killers “In cold Blood” Staring Robert Blake. File this under “Things that make you go hmmm”
Now for great some vintage advertisements. Campbell’s chicken noodle soup still looks the same today. Mmm, mmm good…
When I was a kid carpet tiles were the coolest thing to me. Think about it, carpet you can install yourself, anywhere! FYI: I checked at Lowes about a year ago, carpet tiles are “special order” only and pretty darn expensive.
A shout out to the big three out makers, lets all say a collective prayer that they make it thru 2009. For GM is the Chevy Caprice Custom Coupe “The Grand Chevrolet”. I’ll take mine with a 396 Turbo-jet please.
Up for Ford is the ’67 Mustang. I too have taken the Mustang Pledge, four times. If my ’67 Mustang had “Stereo Tape, air conditioning, center console, Tilt-away steering wheel and a 390 cubic inch engine" I’d still have it today. Mine was a 6 cylinder 3 speed, but it was still cute. (note: this ad is on page 67 - coincidence?)
Representing Chrysler the “Plymouth is out to win you over this year”. Check out that dashboard, “Houston do we have clearance for blast-off?”
Cartons of Coke, what joy. Cartons are not to be confused with “six packs”.
**The usual “don’t smoke” disclaimers apply** It’s so sweet how the doggies are waiting while Mr. 1967 lights his smoke. Smoking is wrong and yucky, but this whole ad has a macho flair to it and I gotta say I like it!
