The New York Times' obituary for Rathmann makes the story about the moon-flown decal sound less than certain.
Some believe he had a decal advertising his car dealership affixed to the lunar rover on either the Apollo 14 or 15 mission, both in 1971. He did nothing to quell the rumor.

Well, why should he quell the rumor? Eitherway, it made for some nice advertising.
