Hunter

While on the east coast visiting family and friends this last week, I was able to make a quick Goodwill stop in Bethesda, MD. I found this amazing cherry red VW bus, still in its original Avon packaging from the mid-1970s (I think). The scent is "Tai Winds" and smells like my granddad.

Someone artfully placed the stickers onto the bus, but it seems the original cap cover, a small silver motorcycle, has been lost to time. Does anyone know the exact year these were made?

Here's a link to a complete version with the motorcycle attached: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Avon-Volkswagen-Bus-Aftershave-IOB-Tai-Winds-After-Shave-/261534225033
