Van Den Plas Carrossiere 1928 - 1930


Recommended Posts

What you see here is from two original Van Den Plas (  Brussels) sales catalogs that are string tied at the binding. they depict Packard and Minerva automobiles. Both have the images in raised areas on the paper they are printed on, so a die had to be made to stamp the paper to achieve this. The fenders, hood, wheels etc are all raised at the ink line they were drawn with. not an inexpensive process to do and to align the printed image up perfectly to. As you can see one catalog is from 1930 and that is the one that had the page listing what Van Den Plas had attended to display their coachwork at in 1928 and 1929.

I do have some really odd/unusual pre war coachwork material from all over the world not just from the USA . Most happy to share this with all of you. Other chassis shown in the catalogs with the Van Den Plas coachwork are Bugatti, Cadillac and Rolls Royce.
