Lots of mountain dew bottlers had thier names put on mountain dew acl hillbilly bottles. Not sure how many. Some are common and some are not.

I've seen these before but always assumed it was a random pairing of names (filled by x and y)

Thanks for your response, I have found other Dew bottles filled by a number of other names, the only thing I've found is one going up for auction but they didn't post any information.

I've seen many different names on these, some tougher then others & some tough ones in mint shape can get $100+. Not sure how tough yours is but the faded colors will effect price unfortunately. LEON.

You can tell what bottling plant it came from by the names. Some are much more rare than others. I'm not familiar with that one. Poking around on Google I came up with one that was from the mid 60s and sold for around $200. It was in way better condition than yours. If I had to guess I would bet those were more of a fantasy bottle done during the time that Gomer Pyle and the Beverly Hillbillies tv shows were popular. Most of the other named bottles had actual people by those names working at the bottling plants. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/mountain-mt-dew-hillbilly-name-bottle-by-gomer
