What is "cartbord"? Never heard of it.

Some look like ads right out of the magazines of the era.

It is possible that some were also printed on thin cardboard and distributed in dealer ad packets to put in windows/on counters as they could be put in a standardized frame that allowed ads to be switched out.

There were big format magazines, ones people are familiar with still today and others that didn't last more than a few years. Country Gentlemen was one in which you'd find such early ad material.

And to disagree directly with Neil, if you look at the pictures close you'll see thick borders on most and no tell-tale signs of page numbers/magazine names. I actually have some original magazine spreads I bought earlier this year from the same era... easy for me to see these are not the same as those.

Do a search under "Floyd Clymer"
He used to reprint old ads in the 50's and offer them up in sets.
He usually marked them as reprints though.
I'm guessing these are reprints on heavy poster board , offered as a premium give away , or collect a set promotion.

Look at some old magazines, nearly all I have, and it's a lot, left page numbers and mag names off full page ads. Just because you "you have some originals" doesn't make you an expert. Thick borders mean nothing, depends on the quality of the mag they came from. The premise supposed by the OP that these were somehow distributed and placed in a frame is far fetched to say the least. Multiple car companies working together to get someone to put a tiny ad in their window? I don't think so. I guess it's been long enough since the 60's and 70's that people think the repo stuff from then is real. Someone mentioned Clymer, he was reproducing stuff since the 40's. They may be something special to someone but I doubt it and "picker's postulation" (patent pending) doesn't change that. laugh

Someone needs to see the shoulder chip specialist.

I make my living by seeing value where others can't/won't/don't. I see value in these and know others who appreciate a collection of displayable automotive advertising whether original or old repro. Framed ads can bring $20-50/ea even for reproductions. Ephemera is a lucrative part of many areas of collecting.

Thanks to the OP for sharing some interesting ephemera with us.
