If a K engine can sell for 41K then for heavens sake, what will this little dealer book sell for? Now, this is one cool book. And if you judge a book by its cover, its insane cool. This cover is amazing. It looks like its engraved, or embossed hand painted leather! Hard to tell in the crappy photos. But man oh man!
It appears from the sellers comment, that his father was thinking of becoming a Chris-Craft dealer back in the day, so is this is possibly the type of brochure used to sell a dealership. And thats the all out best of the best from a budget standpoint. The design dept and marketing dept, would have pulled out all the stops on the cover. And now, a bazillion years later, proof that it was the right call.
The book is worth more than it was new! Heck I bet the entire printing budget was smaller than this. BTW, in 1930 days, CURRENT BID $300 would be. A whopping $20 smackaroos. Which I suppose was a huge meeting to discuss.
YOU CAN SEE IT ALL HERE ON eBay!
