Greetings all. I have located another White Swimsuit 7up bottle from Joyce Products. Not only located but purchased it off eBay.

It goes well with my orange Swimsuit girl bottle.

Most of these pictures have been taken with camera flash on. The ACL is very grayed out but displays nicely.

Leon. Most of the 7up swimsuit bottles do not have painted swimsuits. These appear to have only been produced by the Downey-Joyce company and probably only a very limited run. I believe we know of 5 of the white swimsuit bottles and only one of the orange swimsuits.

Below is a link to a discussion about this when I found the Orange swimsuit bottle a little over a year ago.

Congrats JBeas31. Now I need to find an orange one.
Thanks. Im all for others finding more of the orange and white swimsuit bottles. They are rare for sure. If I had time Id go to Ohio. specifically Norwalk and Columbus area since thats where they were made.

It seems that both of these bottles were produced in Norwalk and Columbus Ohio. If you're in Michigan you are much closer to the source. My white swimsuit bottle came from Florence, Kentucky, so it hadnt traveled far from Columbus, Ohio.

Who knows you might run across one in your area too.
