  I need to have the very first Chrysler magazine ad for my Chrysler museum in Isanti, MN. According to the biography written on Walter Chrysler, in a book by Cursio, the first ad was in the Saturday Evening Post dated December 8, 1923, and it was a two page ad. Anyone have it and would be willing to sell or donate it? Thanks,

Greg Biskey

Greg, how about some info on your Chrysler museum? Since Fiat closed down their museum we Chrysler fans are feeling a bit like orphan make owners.

  The museum is in Isanti, MN, a small town about 30 miles north of Minneapolis. It is called "The Old Chrysler Garage." Contains 14 pre-war Chryslers, (one is a 48), a lot of the old dealership signage and a bunch of memorabilia. The building was built in 1918, was a Willys-Overland dealership, which WPC was in charge of the corp. in 1920- 21, so it has a Chrysler history. I am open Thursday-Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. I only collect Chryslers, no Dodges, etc. I like them all but had to stay with one name to keep from going broke over the years. It's a lot of fun to talk to old car enthusiasts every day, and I have met so many nice people, including some with Chrysler corporation history. I'm on Facebook, The Old Chrysler Garage.

I see a second copy of this magazine on eBay today, $14.95USD "buy it now". It is interesting this issue has a 1 page introduction to the general public about who WPC is and suggests more is to follow about the man on Dec 15 1923? So good luck with your search.
