Description

Zippo lighters that advertised automobiles are featured here in 673 photographs and illustrations along with plenty of identifying information. These unique specimens of Americana were highly prized by their original owners and are appreciated with equal enthusiasm and respect by today's collectors. The logos and images of cars on the lighters range from familiar Fords and Chryslers to lesser-known Bricklins and Tuckers. Imports, trucks, and companies supporting the auto industry all are immortalized. These highly collectible Zippos date from mid-to-late twentieth century, the earliest being a 1938 model. Also included are histories of the Zippo company, insight on the automobile companies, tips for the care and restoration of lighters, and an examination of the decorating techniques. Current market values for the lighters shown are in the captions.
