Auto Literature, Car Sales Brochures & Catalogs: McLellans Automotive



After 55 years of running this literature business, I decided to sell the business and/or the literature. The web site is included. Age and health problems have dictated that it is time for me to move on and let someone with the love of old car literature to have some fun with what I have collected.

The literature remains in my climate controlled shop and is maintained in pristine condition. I have never taken the literature to swapmeets and it has all ways been sold by mail order. Current inventory has a retail price of $1.5 million and consists of over 40,000 items. I have dropped the price from $150,000 to $50,000. The sale information is here: http://www.mclellansautomotive.com/auto-lit-business-for-sale/ as it was up to a couple of month ago before the reorganization for shipping.

I went through all the literature that was not inventoried (not on the web site) and eliminated everything post 1979 that was common and kept only that which is very collectable (the good sporty, exotic, luxurious and rare). All of the literature on the web site is still available except the more common recent (1980s +) make/model press kits. The objective was to present to the prospective buyer a more manageable collection that was easier to ship and store and yet preserve the value of the collection. It can now all be transported to a buyer in one 18 wheeler and stored in an area of two average size bedrooms or a two car garage. Shipping costs are unknown but at the price that I am offering the literature and website for, this should not be a consideration. Remember, everything on the web site is already photographed and described. If you wish to sell using the web site or if you prefer eBay, most of the work has already been done. At about a dollar per brochure, book, etc., it is far less that I paid for it. The purchasing price is far less than you can buy literature for and such a large collection is a once in a life time opportunity. The great thing about good quality, desirable literature is that it increases in value with time. It is that literature that I have and I am offering for sale. I have techs in India that do all the web site work for a reasonable retainer if that is of interest to you. I will be available to give you advise by phone.

Best wishes,
