This old piece is a 1923 "Bargain Book of Auto Supplies" by Montgomery Ward Co. This also had the order form and mailing envelope still inside as shown. This neat old catalog has supplies for the motoring enthusiast! It looks to me like this was a great catalogue for someone trying to build one from scratch as it seems like everything needed is inside. Some of the things available inside are: bodies for automobiles, tires, gauges, lights, horns, carburetors, springs, motoring clothing, camping equipment (picture shows an auto bed, top re-cover outfits, batteries, electrical supplies, tools, bumpers, chains, step plates, speedometers, pumps, repair and care kits, manifolds, differential gear for Maxwell and Chevrolet, radiators, a big selection of "Parts For Fords", pistons, gaskets, cushions, anti-rattlers, ball bearings, ignition systems, timer elevators, and much more! The prices are included. A battery was $11.95, a carburetor $3.95,a radiator $12.95, and a truck body for Fords $8.25! Wow...a whole "snappy speed" body fitting a Ford was $64. This is illustrated throughout.
This is app. 9"x6.5" with 50 pages. This is of paper. This has some corner, edge, spine wear and soiling. There is some paper loss at spine in spots. The back cover has quite a bit of soiling as shown. There is a light crease down the center as it was folded in half at one time. It is complete. There is browning to the pages.
We do combine to save on shipping!. As always if you need more information or photos, please do not hesitate to inquire.
