1966 Mountain Dew Willy the Hillbilly promotional figure

I've had this "Willy the Hillbilly" Mountain Dew Man since 1972. I also have the original promo bottle. It is safely wrapped up and boxed away.
It was a gift. I have been researching since and have NEVER found any information about this 3' rare advertising vintage promotion product. I've always been curious, can you help me out?

I have one of these also. My uncle worked for Pepsi and brought it home for me in the early 70s. Mine is not mounted on a stand and seems to be more of a doll. It is pliable and bendable. is yours too?

 My husband remembers this doll! As a child in Wyoming, they were dropped from the sky in a Mountain Dew promotion. They had parachutes, and kids who found them were rewarded with a certain number of cases of Mountain Dew. Pretty cool!

 

Does anyone have one for sale? If so, how much? Thanks!

  I don't know if you still have this or if you have found out any information on this collectable or not.  I have found 2 websites with information on value of the Mountain Dew doll. Ebay has one for $950.00.  Here are two sites about them.  I have been looking for one for my best friend who has a mountain dew tattoo that I designed and she loves anything mountain dew and has a big collection.

Thank you
