Here are some of my original Chevrolet Dealer brochures. It is hard to think that they freely gave these away to prospective buyers for many decades and many years ago. These are all in as new condition. Enjoy.

It's funny you collect dealer brochures George as I did. I have every one of those that you posted.
My Chevy car brochures go back to 1950 and I have every one throughout the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's.
My Dad started me on my collection as he used to go to the car dealers every year and pick one up for free and give to me. I tagged along and kept every one.
When I was old enough I would go to all the car dealers around Oct on Hillside Ave in Jamaica, Queens, NYC and take a free brochure with my cousin Frank. There was every car dealer you could think of on Hillside Ave, Jamaica.
I currently have over 1,000 original dealer brochures safely stored in several plastic cases so they don't get moldy. I have them boxed by the decade.
I hope to pass these to my children and grandchildren so they get a first hand view of some history. It was a great time growing up back then. Cheers to you my friend, Mario

Mario, you make me look like a complete rookie. I have sold off most of my collection over the past twenty five years. I use to have a very large Studebaker collection as well and these Studebaker guys were offering me nuts money for my collection. Cheers.[Reply to this comment]

It was not my intent to make you feel that way George.
I admire your collection and that we have the same hobby in common. Not many people our age still have any of the free dealer brochures we got as kids, that's why they're selling for high prices.
Like baseball cards, model car kits, old toys, you name it these are hot items today. I collected and kept what I loved and it's hard to sell them.
Cheers to you again, Mario[Reply to this comment]
