    A near LTypI in this 1966 ad for Model Motoring sets by the Aurora Plastics Corporation … “1st Prize: A Brand New ’67 Ford Mustang!” is set in Neue Aurora VIII. The word “Aurora” itself doesn’t appear in Aurora, though. The blue line with “Ford-Aurora” features another condensed grot: It’s Impact – which had been released the year before – sandwiched by caps from Helvetica Condensed. The copy is in regular-wide Helvetica, with Trade Gothic or similar for the small print.
