Can-Am Cars in Detail: The Premium Publisher’s Edition Can-Am Cars in Detail: The Premium Publisher’s Edition

The Premium Publisher’s Edition of Can-Am Cars in Detail is offered in a numbered series limited to just 40 examples. Like the Publisher’s Edition, it features 36 additional pages of photographs and text covering 10 more rare Can-Am cars, and is autographed by 10 great Can-Am drivers and constructors.

These men contributing autographs to the Premium Publisher's Edition include: Tyler Alexander (McLaren); Eric Broadley (Lola); Dan Gurney, (AAR); Jim Hall (Chaparral); and Don Nichols (Shadow). It is also signed by five great drivers: Chris Amon; Mario Andretti; George Follmer (1972 champion); Jackie Oliver (1974 champion); and John Surtees (1966 champion).

The book itself is bound in luxurious garment-quality black leather with silver metallic printing, and the cover features a close-up image of the intake trumpets from a Can-Am engine. It is presented in a specially fabricated aluminum box designed to emulate the monocoque tub for a Can-Am car. The box features the same purple DeHavilland rivets as used by Lola and other manufacturers, a plexiglass cover that recalls a sports-car windscreen, and push-pin quick-release opener. It was built with the help of former Carl Haas Lola crew chief Ike Smith, who remains actively involved in restoring vintage Can-Am cars today.

Purchasers of the Premium Publisher’s edition will also receive a complimentary reading copy of the standard edition of Can-Am Cars in Detail.
