March 1962 Ad for Crescent Contest — Jeep Tow Truck Prize

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Here’s an unusual contest prize: a new jeep truck with a tow package that included a Canfield wrecker setup along with a Canfield push plate on the front. This grand prize was awarded to the person would created the best cartoon featuring “Wiry Joe”. The Crescent company was the maker of Wiry Joe automotive wire and cable products. It tried to find out more, but all I could unearth was that someone in Rhode Island won one of the cameras.

The ad is priced at $19.97, while the whole magazine can be purchased for $10.99 (or less).
