Portuguese Jeep Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features, International

I bought the following 5″x7″ Portuguese ads off of eBay for $2/ad plus shipping from Europe. The seller noted he had more ads, so sent me a link to 96 more (including lots of good early ads). He wanted to sell these outside of eBay, so I figured I’d get a better price, especially buying in bulk. Instead, he doubled the ads to $4/per ad. When I balked at the price, he claimed he was selling his ads for €6 on eBay ($7.09). Given I’d just bought them for $2, I was a bit confused by his claim. Maybe something was lost in translation, but, needless to say, I won’t be buying any ads from this seller outside of eBay.

These ads have some neat illustrative work.

    Love the hand-drawn artwork… especially that second image with the tall load of sticks: incredible :-).
