Glass's Guides

Post by Admin » Wed, 14 May 2008, 2:55 pm

I have just received some very interesting information from a very helpful chap at Glass's, the company who produce the car, motorcycle and caravan trade price guides. He checked back through their archives and checked each issue for the first and last mentions of the Portafold and Ansfold caravans.

The first listing of the Portafold that he could find was in the September to November 1966 issue and it only showed the price for a 1966 model, nothing earlier.

The last mention of the Portafold appeared in the September 1976 issue.

The first listing of the Ansfold was in the June 1977 issue.

with the last mention being in the June 1978 issue.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
