For Sale: Vintage Mountain Dew Inflatable Boat 303$ OR BEST OFFER,
Here is a vintage item you don't see too often. A Mountain Dew inflatable boat, made by Sevylor. Maybe this was a prize from a old promo. After doing a lot of research I haven't found any others online at all, and for all I know it is the only one in existence.
THIS BOAT IS CONFIRMED AS A EARLY 1980s Mountain Dew original. There are possibly two others that survived in this condition. Included in this lot is a empty original 16 oz 1980s era Mountain Dew bottle bearing the same logo as the boat.
This item is a very rare Mountain Dew collectible that even has the original boat transfer papers, which are all mint condition blank and unsigned.
This item was never used or inflated. The box does have storage/shelf wear from long term garage storage. But the unassembled paddle components are still in the original unbroken and factory sealed plastic. This factory seal was most likely only applied to the paddle component bag to assure that no small components were lost.
But the plastic bag for the pump was only secured by a single piece of tape, but that tape does not stick due to storage dust or humidity. The pump is a foot pump and is unaffected by the long term storage.
The bag that the actual boat is in did not come from the factory sealed, but I did place a strip of clear postal tape over the bag to make sure the transfer papers would not accidentally slip out or get soiled.
Now dust has found its way into some of the packaging. Probably due to some water damaged garage roofing that let some moisture or humidity in. This wouldn't effect the item, but one side of the factory box shows more storage wear than the other side.
But this is a complete unit with original box, Sevylor labeled pump, paddles & boat itself. Everything is in new & unused condition,again, with some dust from the garage.
