Auto Sales Literature - Truck Car Catalogs & Brochures

Closed for business as of February 1, 2015.

Buy this auto literature business and web site

At 71 years of age and after owning www.McLellansAutomotive.com for over 55 years, the business was closed on February 1, 2015. It has been a lot of fun but it is time for me to retire. Millions of dollars of literature has been sold throughout the world and although the business could go on forever, I am ready to sell it to someone younger who enjoys automotive literature and wants to make money with a well established and profitable business that has been a leader in the auto literature field. The web site will remain active, but currently is not accepting sales. The web site has been updated and sales can begin immediately when the business is purchased. The sale includes the web site, database, all of the literature, supplies and access to tech services.

Why buy this collection/business?
~ It would take a lifetime and a fortune to acquire a collection of literature of this size.
~ You will have 46,450 items on the web site and about as many items ready to add to the web site.
~ The price of the literature is less than 10% of the costs that is offered on the web site.
~ The purchase of the literature alone is cheaper than you can acquire it through buying individual collections.
~ All the work has been done -- photographs and descriptions -- just fill orders, ship and deposit the money in the bank.
~ The cost of building the database and web site exceeds the total asking price of the collection/business.

2 AUTO DEALER LITERATURE
How is dealer literature different from other auto brochures? Our dealer literature section offers items that are found in a dealer's album or data book which includes real leather samples, original paint chips, photos of exterior and interior variations and technical drawings (that are never seen in car showroom sales brochures). Some car literature collectors completely miss out on the value this type of literature offers. Don't!

3  AUTO MAGAZINES
If you are interested in automotive history, old auto magazines are a great source of information. The articles published in older magazines were by writers who had been present at events and test-drove cars — they had been witness to history as it was created. They had had first-hand experience with our antiques and classics when these were new. This value cannot be replicated in a current day magazine, by a writer who was not even born when these cars were built or raced.

6 RACING & SHOW PROGRAMS
This section contains racing and show programs that were printed for automotive events such as car rallies, grand prix, car racing championships, concours and other motor shows. Only small numbers of such racing programs remain, and we currently have them for events covering Cadillac, Ferrari, Honda, Rolls-Royce, Studebaker, Toyota and Auburn / Cord / Duesenberg. Other general interest programs cover several classic and vintage car rallies & sprint car races.
