This Hong Kong Extra Edition didn’t include a date, but the Volume and No suggests this is the September 1960 issue. Much of this issue covers the Hong Kong TV show, but there is some Surrey info on page six and seven. Also, the way the paper unfolds is kind of awkward, so I’ve added a few extra scans below.


Page two through page five are all connected physically. Here’s what it looks like when fully open:

    Its interesting to see how much attention they gave the surrey in these early 60s issues. It seemed to be a spotlight vehicle for the marketing department.

    Matt: the Surrey sure got a ton of attention! It does seem the marketing folks had high hopes. It would be interesting to know what the estimations were for sales prior to the Surrey’s release. After all, the Plain Jane DJ-3A Dispatcher was hardly a big seller, and the Surrey was just a DJ-3A with lipstick, so I can’t imagine the sales estimates would have warranted the marketing push??
