1958 Chevrolet Cracker Jack Box

Post by bohknows » Fri Jun 28, 2013 10:58 am

Hello to all. I am new to this forum but not collecting. I am not a Cracker Jack collector per say but I am looking for a box for my collection. There was a special box of Cracker jacks produced in 1957-1958 to introduce/ advertise the new 1958 Chevrolet. I have only ever seen one box in a collection and would love to find one for my own. Has anyone here ever seen one of these? I would be very interested if someone has a lead on one that could be purchased. I am willing to pay a finder’s fee or make a very generous offer. If someone has any information please feel free to contact me at bohknows@yahoo.com .
Thanks, Keith

Hiya Keith, I haven't seen of them before, but others may have. Did you get a picture of the one you've seen? I'd love to look at it.

Hello, bohknows

According to the Cracker Jack Archives this type of new car advertising by the Cracker Jack Company was used in the late 1950's. I only have the new Plymouth 1959 promotion picture. At least one can tell what the Chevrolet package of Cracker Jack would have been designed to look like.
