          A member of our chapter, the Greater Virginia Chapter, had one. He's still around, but not sure if he still has it. He displayed it at one of our meetings, but hovered over it like a mother hen. No ham-handed leafing though it allowed (for good reason)!

            Is that the 'Holy Grail' of postwar Studebaker paper literature?

            (ALL dealer paper literature sales devices and service items, not limited to handouts one was able take home with them.)

              I bought one of the reproduction on eBay shortly after Asa's auction. I paid $90.00 for it.

                  The buyer offered it to me for something north of $1,000. I was sorely tempted, but decided not to buy. I bought one of the reproduced books from Richard Quinn and I will say it is VERY NICE!

                    Richard, the original 1953 Fact Book had the 15 blank pages inclusive with the normal written format plus black & white images for a total of 106 pages, somewhat identical to the 1954 book with the color inserts.
                    Dick Quinn's reproduction issue may have numbered as low as ten so even one of those would be tough to find.
