This is the first issue of International Car Review, published February 1953, by Screen Teen Publishing of Purchase, New York. The cover is a wraparound photo with the Aston Martin DB2 convertible positioned on the front cover and a '51 Ford convertible on the back. This magazine measures 5 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches with 146 interior pages. The binding is glued to a cut and stapled interior, a somewhat odd perfect-bound derivative.
Very cool Facel Bentley one-off coupe, left, is oddly positioned on the inside cover. Contents page with masthead info is at the bottom of this first right-hand page. I haven't found much information at all online about this publication, but I always love having the first of anything. Typical interior pages below. Besides the listings of cars on each page, there are a few longer articles interspersed throughout.
Pages 54-55, Italy—Two stunning Siata specials.
Pages 66-67, England—Now classic Allards, left and right.
Pages 120-21, America—Dodge and the somewhat lesser-known Fina Sport. The what? I've never heard of it either!
U P D A T E — One of my awesome readers furnished me with this link to the Fina Sport above, The first car in this article looks like the one on the page above. Very interesting construction using domestic platforms and drivetrains with bespoke, and gregarious coach-built, bodies, Vignale being the designer of the example posted.
