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.
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).
