Important news from OLD CARS WEEKLY for the Crosley Car Owners Club members:
The hobby begged for The Standard Catalog of American Cars 1805-1942 to be re-released, and the publishers of Old Cars Weekly can now deliver it.
After hiding in a dusty corner of Old Cars Weekly's archives for a decade, the materials for The Standard Catalog of American Cars 1805-1942 have been found and the book will be offered in a limited run exclusively through Old Cars Weekly's online book store.
This book details histories behind the 5,000 automobiles built from 1805-1942, most with period photographs. This resource covers both the well-known and little-known vehicles of this period, including steamers, electrics, motor buggies, high wheelers, cyclecars, high-volume production cars and one-offs among its 5,000-plus entries.
This massive book not only has 1939-1942 Crosley data but all cars from the 'A' automobile to the Zip; in-depth information on every known automobile to the last car off the production line before World War II. Whenever available, there's identification data, engine displacement figures, horsepower ratings, chassis specs, body types and production numbers, original factory prices and engine specifications, plus pictures of each car tracing engineering and styling changes for each model from year to year to make identification a snap.
Pre-Orders get FREE SHIPPING to U.S. addresses. LIMITED copies available.
