List of defunct automobiles

Recommended Posts

That's a start. Pick up a copy of The Standard Catalog of American Cars 1805-1942, turn to virtually any of the book's 1600 pages and you will see plenty of defunct autos. In the book you will find more than 5,000 automobile names.

There's also Automobile Qtlys The American Car Since 1775 AKA 5000 Marques, my copy a second edition 1976 but I don't know if updated from original 1971...the car index has a supplement of cars announced but apparently never built; it also has an American and Canadian TRUCK index as well as an index of truck "possibles". No thumbnails, just names, addresses, dates, but a nice reference, laced with all kinds of other info.

Georgano probably has something comparable on World Cars, World Trucks, but his books are outside my budget range; I do have his little Comm'l Veh 1830-1964 book, just names, addreesses, dates, types, no thumbnails.

No, I haven't compared my AQ with my Std Cat; I thought I might whwn I retired, but now that I'm retired I never have any time...
