Sorry for doing it in two times/replies, had some troubles with resizing and posting them.
I hope you have an idea Jed, if you want a better scan please PM me.

Lots of fun looking at this brochure - if you ever get a chance to pick one up I would recommend it.

Thanks Marco!

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your kind words, but that's what Squarebirds is all about in my opinion:
Help.......Advise.......Share.......Suggest....... Fill.......Etc,etc,etc.......

(Your fun is my pleasure!)

Marco, thanks so much for showing us the 58 brochure. I'll copy and save those pics you had sent so I know what to look for and purchase. I did some internet searching last night and found several for sale for between $25-$35 USD. All of them were footnoted with *small version. Now that I have seen your pics, I know what the small version is. It isn't as large as the '60 brochure. Thanks again!

Default Brochures for Export Cars

All right, here's my Xmas request: 22+ years ago when I was studying in Europe I was shown a '58 T-bird brochure in English which had info on the export version with the 332/Ford-O-Matic. I've been looking for one ever since. Anybody got one, or similar ones for '59 and '60? Or any auf Deutsch?

Am I wrong, or did Ford use the same characters from the '58 brochure for the '59 brochure !? Like they had Photoshop back then....

Marco,
Thanks so much for taking the time to scan this! On the engine page is a picture of a T-bird like my Yellowbird.

Hi Jed,

Can't figure out what a "Small Version" exactly is or contains, but I think it means it's a foldout brochure. The ones with 4 or 6 pages instead of a 16-page brochure.

Hi Anders,

You spotted a right one there, as I found out in the past mostly they're called "Deluxe Brochures"
(I think because of the pages as a book instead of a foldout brochure)

EDIT: Please Anders......Don't bid on it......unless your money is no issue??
(If you'll give yourself some time, you can buy two or more brochures for this price)

I would suppose you guys over in Europe must figure that since the Euro has now fallen back to $1.46USD that maybe you ought to wait till it gets back up to $1.55 before you do any more Birdstuff shopping.
