1954 Kaiser Willys Sales Promoter Bulletins on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

This is the first I’ve seen of these Kaiser Willys Sales Promotor bulletins, though it is unclear how many bulletins are provided. The ebay ad includes pics of the cover, a foreword, and issues number 1 and number 3. I’ve added additional ones found on the web at the bottom. I don’t think there is a whole lot of jeep info (seems more car oriented), but still interesting.

Apparently, these KW Sales promoters is a carry over from Kaiser Frazier, which also had a similar program. A CD of the KF promoters can be found here: http://circlekf.com/KFNut/forsale/sp.html
