1951 Salesman Quiz from a Willys Overland Training

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

I found this quiz from a sales training meeting from 1951.  The quiz is available on eBay if you want to purchase it.  I had planned to create an interactive quiz, but for some reason my theme isn’t cooperating with any of the quiz templates.  Of course, I was disappointed, because I planned to have music, flashing lights, amazing colors, audio tracks, balloons, spaceships, prizes, and so much more . . . Instead, just use pencil and paper and imagine everything else  . . . And thanks to Colin for organizing the answers for me!!
