“Standard Catalog of® Ford 1903-2003” compiles a massive amount of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicle information and presents it in a standardized format. Each listing includes a description of the vehicle; standard factory equipment; vehicle or engine code interpretation, chart containing model codes, type descriptions, original retail price, original shipping weight and production totals; engine specifications; chassis features; drivetrain and running gear; option lists; and thumbnail history of vehicle or manufacturer. A 16-page full color photo section displays some of the more popular models created by the Ford Motor Company.
The How to Use This Catalog section examines a sample listing and thoroughly explains each segment. Other helpful sections include frequently used abbreviations, types of body styles and how to calculate vehicle dimensions.
Gunnell writes in the Foreword, “Standard Catalogs are not history books, encyclopedias or repair manuals…They are intended to be collector’s guides, much like the popular spotter’s guides, buyer’s digests and pricing guides, but utilize a large size, broad scope and deluxe format.”
