About

Original vintage camper van dealer showroom advertising poster for Volkswagen - What is it? - featuring a great design depicting big package wrapped in brown paper and string visible through the open doors of a red Volkswagen station wagon and from the rolled back open rooftop with a description of the vehicle and its loading capabilities below, stating it can carry nearly a ton of anything or 8 people (with luggage), last about 24 miles on a gallon of regular gas on an air-cooled engine with 4 feet less to park, with the answer to the question about the mystery package at the end: "8 pairs of skis, the complete works of Dickens, 98 lbs. of frozen spinach, a hutch used by Grover Cleveland, 80 Hollywood High gym Sweaters, a suit of armour, and a full sized reproduction of the Winged Victory of Samothrace." next to the VW logo in light silver grey.
