I had been searching for many years for this Fanta 26 oz ACL, often I found them on line but either they were sold already, not for sale, or too pricey!
But I finally landed one! This is the second style released in 1961...and this example is dated 1961, and the third style was introduced in about 1967-68. I have never seen a quart in the first bottle style and doubt one even exists.
Fanta was released in the USA in 1959 and in Canada it was 1960.
I'm not sure if I ever posted my other Fanta bottles, so hard to keep track of!...lol, but I will post them anyways.

This is the first style carton and ribbed bottle.

I'm still missing many examples that I have seen from fellow collectors across Canada, but I do have a good chunk of them!

This is a Fanta sign I picked up a few years ago, I'm currently cleaning it to remove a layer of smoke and grunge, that process is going quite well.
Last year I picked up one of those wire metal frames with a Coke ad in it, I may display this one in it at some point.

Here is another carboard ad, I do believe this image came from a friend of mine. this particular ad was dated 1965.

Not sure why, join some facebook pages and advertise that you are looking... I run Canadian Soda Pop Works.
