1961 Comet Promo

Back in the 60's, when you went to a dealer to buy a car. They would sometimes send you what was called a promo in the mail. It was basically a model of the car with a letter that was designed to get you to come back in and buy the "big" version of the car. Here is a complete promo with car, box, shipping box and letter. I finally found one of these in two parts. The paperwork and then the model and the box. I am just missing the shipping box. If your selling one of these please email me.
