In 1982, Zippo celebrated the 50th anniversary of its lighters by producing a replica of an early model for the first time ever. It was a flat bottomed, solid-brass model and had a diagonally-cut line on both the top of the lid and the bottom of the case. This was the reproduction of the 1937 model and came in a box that had the same design as the one used between 1935 and 1940, which bore the illustration of the "Windproof Beauty".

The Commemorative box had a gold finish rather than the original silver finish. This reproduction was based on the 1935 prototype box that was never used in production. The Vintage Series made its first debut in 1985; it was a reproduction of the square-shaped 1937 model. While the Commemorative Zippo Lighter was a reproduction of the 1937 model, which was manufactured by pressing. In 1988, the reproduction of the 1932 model was offered only through subscription. The original 1932 Zippo lighters are extremely rare these days.

The reproduction model had a 1/4 inch thick plastic raised bottom to accommodate a regular inside unit and the regular inside hinge was placed outside of the case. To commemorate its 60th anniversary, Zippo sold a set of six reproduction models. The replica of the 25th anniversary model, which was produced in 1957, is the one that mostly resembles the original.

As more people have quit smoking over the past several years, the market for Zippo lighters has begun to decline. While Zippo still remains dominate in the refillable lighter market, a new and broader approach was needed to expand sales. In 2001, Zippo began producing other products. Instead of being single-product business, the time had come for expansion and changes.

The Multi-Purpose Zippo Lighter was the first new product to be released in 2002. This lighter, while not intended for use by a smoker, was aimed towards jobs such as lighting candles, lanterns, fireplaces, grills, and camp fires. While keeping a sharp design, it was able to offer and an adjustable length flame. The new Multi-purpose Zippo Lighter started off strongly that first year by selling an estimated 2 million lighters. With the release of this new product line, many more retailers that formerly didn’t carry Zippo lighters, now carry Zippo products.

Besides only lighter products, Zippo has begun producing pocket knives, watches, bottle openers, flash lights, tape measurers and money clips. Adding these products over the past several years has shown Zippo’s effort to remain competitive in the 21st century. The question is, what will the next new Zippo products be?

Zippo Lighter Package History

The package is part of the Zippo art. By appearance, the lighter boxes are roughly classified into 12 different size categories. But, if the mount-style differences and specially made series boxes are taken into account, the number would total well over 30 categories. The mount used between 1932 and 1933 was plain cardboard with a lighter-shaped cutout, covered with matte-black paper. The paper was switched to a glossy style that was used from the year 1933 until 1936. Zippo has offered a free repair service, which supports its lifetime guarantee, since its foundation. Up until 1940, a repaired Zippo was returned in the package in which the Zippo was sent for the service. If this was not possible, the Zippo was delivered in a brand new box.

From 1941, the company used collapsible boxes for returning Zippos that had been sent back for repair. Return boxes for repaired Zippos were used until 1951; from 1952, the new box was introduced for regular Zippo lighters and the return boxes were changed to the same striped boxes as the regular ones. Since then, the boxes for returns were changed, following the modifications to regular models, until 1978. Then the use of boxes was terminated, the last boxes were decorated with the flame design. From 1981 to 1986, a plastic package was used.

As I was looking through my Zippo lighter collection the other day I ran across one I haven’t used in a few months but thought it would be good to talk about it. It Is my Ford Mustang Zippo Lighter #24308.

The Ford Mustang Zippo Lighter incorporates to great things about America in one item, a Ford Mustang and of course a Zippo Lighter. Both are made in America and have been around for many years now.

It comes with a silver case with the Zippo logo on the front of it.

We also have many other Zippo lighters than bring together things American, like Harley Davidson and the Armed Forces of the U.S.A.
