*Not sure about the date of this brochure, the Plymouth car may be a clue. American Dreamboats (see below) lists it as a 1940's catalog. The text shown here was not featured in this book. Someone else w/ same brochure said it was 1952. This one has no date on it.
Note the penciled in prices for each model.
