'61-'71 Dodge Ads

This is the ads page, one that was created to highlight the rather unique paper ads of '61-'71 Dodge Trucks and A-100 Vans. Most of these were found in various issues of the Saturday Evening Post Magazine from the 50's 60's and early 70's. It is also possible to find them in other publications of these years, but I have yet to research this thoroughly. Below is a complete listing of known issues with ads, and a description to give some direction as to what to look for. Also, images are linked where possible so anxious enthusiasts can view these ads in jpg format. Some are kinda large and might take a while to load, so fair warning is hereby given. Also, for space requirements, some of the linked pics may have been cropped or have large portions removed for clarity.

Most times, larger libraries have back issues from the sixties of the Saturday Evening Post Magazine. I currently attend a large university and have access to more issues than I can handle. Check around, sometimes these libraries are giving them away for free!

Musclecar fans, The Saturday Evening Post magazine had NUMEROUS musclecar ads of interest to the ultimate enthusiast during these years. Since I am only interested in '61-'71 Trucks for this website, I didn't have the time to document each issue that I found these ads in. If you want to find an ad on your primo musclecar from the sixties or seventies, check the Saturday Evening Post. It is likely that you will find what you're looking for.

I am interested in obtaining magazines, literature or ads from '61-'71 that feature Dodge Trucks. Please contact me via the Online Response link below if you have any or would be willing to color copy them at my expense. Materials loaned for use on this site will be promptly returned as they were received.

Dated Ads List

Unless otherwise noted, all ads on this page were found in the Saturday Evening Post Magazine on the date and page given. Numerous other magazines of the '61-'71 time period featured ads for Dodge Trucks, but due to accessibility only the Saturday Evening Post versions are currently listed.

Hot Rod had one if not more issues with `61-`71 Dodge Trucks within them. One in particular is the August 1970 issue which depicts on the front cover Tom McEwen's Mongoose Racecar with his support truck looming in the background. This support truck looks to be a 1969 Crew Cab D-500 with a specialty car carrier on the rear to transport the Mongoose car from race to race. Click the small image below to view the larger version. Note: this image is very large (108kb).

Here is an image from the front of a 1961 Dodge Truck Sales brochure. As you can see, it represents one of the first 1961 Dodge Power Wagon Pickups. (submitted by John Bitter)

Rod Goings owns a smooth, 360 inspired `67 A-100 Sportsman (shown at left). He also has on his Mopar Homage Website a complete A-100 advertisement from that same year. Be sure to have a look if you own an A-100.
