Default Brochures



A few years ago, I found a really great resource for old Ford brochures called "The Old Car Manual Project." I thought you guys might get a kick out of it.

Check it out To read the rest of this blog entry from The Ford Barn, click here.

Thanks Henry. I have always wondered why the brochure almost always exaggerates the length of the hood giving the car the impression of being low and sleek.

Thanks for sharing the link! I was looking to see what models are in the various brochures, and all the pages are shown here. Now I can go shopping.

I have a brochure from '32 & '35 - the gold one is from '32 and the other is from '35. I have a few other from '35 but the one in the pics is the nicest. They are both really interesting, the one from '32 should have a gold envelope with it but I didn't get that when I bought mine. As you can see the '32 brochure was for the uk market.

In the brochures, you will also see the people, looking very small. This gives the illusion of the car being bigger inside.
