I will scan my European Cars Slumberwagen Brochures at the week end to add to your collection.

Orange 3/61Image
Note the stamp on the front page of each showing that these were sent out from The Automobile Association. As I remember, Members could request a brochure and these were then posted out to them. These are stamped November 1960 and November 1961

Hi,

Another photo for you. I think it's a little better in some areas but I'd have to work on the lighting to hope to get it any better. So I'm afraid that's it for now.

Thanks for that, very useful to see the typeface they used.

Cheers

Peter, what does it say under the VW badge? Can’t read it.

Thanks
