 Book is in overall good condition.  There is a tear to the back cover, as shown in the last picture.  Previous owner wrote his name on the inside cover, but it is on the title page and not on any pictures/samples. Pages are not torn but do show some slight discoloring due to age.  5 paint chips have some minor damage from being pressed together for so long. 

Book is a great piece of Oldsmobile perfect for any enthusiasts collection or coffeetable.  Any questions just ask.
