I bought a 1969 edition of the Montgomery
Ward Christmas catalog on eBay. It was the year I turned 11 years old, and was also the year of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Remembering how
I eagerly awaited those pages filled with advertisements for model airplanes, boats, guns, Erector sets, and countless other things, I figured
it might be nice to look through one again. Here is the 1969 Sears Christmas
, too. Enjoy!
Here on page 378 of the Montgomery
Ward 1969 Christmas catalog are three .049-powered Cox models - the Douglas A-1 Skyraider control line airplane, the California Dune Buggy,
and the wild Shrike Air Car.
The $13.66 price for the California Dune Buggy in 1969 is the equivalent of $88.34 in 2015 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics'
Cox A-1 Skyraider Control Line Model from the 1969 Montgomery Ward Christmas Catalog
