Description
This dashboard doll was sold during President Lyndon B. Johnson’s successful 1964 presidential campaign. It came in a box that read: “LBJ Himself…A true-to-life replica as personal as a hand-shake. Conversation gift of the year for desks, mantels, collections. Specially made to attach to cars.” Remco produced a similar doll designed to look like Senator Barry Goldwater, the Republican nominee, who lost to the Democratic incumbent in a landslide.
