Orig. WW2 Autocar M3 GMC Poster

Post by AZ Jeff » Wed Dec 01, 2010 7:43 pm

Howdy Folks,

Here's a very cool and utterly crazy WW2 Autocar Promotional Poster for the M3 75mm Gun Motor Carriage...

Image

I think we can catagorize the theme as "wishful" thinking with all those Stukas taking a beating at the hand of M3 GMCs... Still, it's classic WW2 artwork. Note the late pattern headlights... Hmmm

The image measures 15" wide x 20" tall and appears to be in an original, period wood frame. The cardboard backer is old and the nails look the part and unmolested. There are traces of old brown sealing paper on the edges. Image is EXC with bright colors and no damage. It has the AUTOCAR brand logo and I'm rather certain this is their promotional handiwork for display at dealerships etc. I have not had it out of the frame so I can't say if it's been trimmed down but it doesn't appear to be. Very cool, original promotional art in a great display size.

Price is $350 plus postage from sunny (still) SE AZ. Please PM direct if you are interested. PayPal accepted and preferred. Thanks for looking!

I have seen that ad. They do, in fact, tout it as an anti-aircraft weapon. I will see if I can find it. It may be in the vintage photo section of this site. Jesse.

I have several adds from WWII period life and other magazines. A couple of the Autocar adds look much like the poster you show us.
I think they make a real cool collection on the wall onces framed.
