The history of the PT Cruiser was a short one but one that had tremendous advertising behind it when it introduced the 2001 model. It had a base price of $16,000 and many of the first ones sold for more than twice that! I have a total of six brochures that I received during that early marketing drive when we lived in California. Each has a different spin on what it was using as an attention getter. Each of the brochures is summarized below:

Operator's Manual -- early introduction displayed in 4 pages.
Registration for Free Driving Event -- a foldout of six sides.
Technical Information (plus a Product Information Guide) -- a 10 page foldout with a number of photos and drawings and reminders of all the news releases that firs came out in April 1999. (I received an email on this in January 2000 to create that enthusiasm!
Penny For Your Thoughts About PT Cruiser -- a 7 page brochure with a penny included on page 2 to use to scratch off the MSRP space to learn what the price would be!
Route 66 invitation to join Hot Rod Magazine's Power Tour 2000 -- consists of an 8 page foldout of pictures and also a May 15, 2000 letter showing the map and major cities that would be visited. All this before the vehicle was really released widespread.
PT Cruiser Turbo -- this foldout amounts to 2 large pages (approximately 20" by 15") with a full exterior side view and an interior behind the wheel view.

That's a lot of info but, for the interested party, can be a great keepsake. Feel free to ask any questions.
