  • Sometimes patience pays off - 53 Inside Facts Book

    Some probably over 20 years ago Richard Quinn produced what I remember to be around a dozen copies of the 1953 Dealer Inside Facts book. When he produced them I had two small kids and could not justify the money for the book I really wanted. While walking around the Swap Meet at Mansfield what to I see but a 1953 Inside Facts Book I obviously bought it and will enjoy reading it. I have hoped to find one every year and previously always failed

    That was a major project. It was in 2007 and I had 20 copies printed. I thought they came out quite well but it was time intensive and I have not been motivated to repeat it. For those who are unfamiliar with the books a few images below. There are 110 pages. Studebaker only printed a very few proof copies and none were ever circulated to dealers.
