1955 Truck Export Brochure Form W-252-6X

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures

This 1956 Truck brochure targeted the export market. It’s Form W-252-6X, however it looks nothing like it’s Form W-252-6 truck brochure counterpart. It’s larger and folds out to 17″ x 22″. Why re-use the form number, but make the brochure wholly different from the domestic brochure? I haven’t a clue.

1956 Domestic Wagon Brochure Form W-253-6

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This 1956 Wagon brochure Form W-253-6 likely has an export version labeled Form W-253-6X, yet I have had no luck locating it. I expect the export version design will be similar to Form W-250-6X (CJ-5/CJ-6/CJ-3B) and Form W-252-6X (Truck). This brochure opens up to 17″x11″.

Hotchkiss CJ-3B Brochure on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This Hotchkiss CJ-3B brochure appears to have been made in coordination with the Willys-Overland Export company, as some of the imagery and design is similar. Given the CJ-3B was considered the “New Jeep”, I’d say this brochure must have been published in 1953.

Below is the French version of the brochure, which is on eBay. The one below that is one from my collection.
