Historical Data available for 67 countries: see if you can help!

Was the Cadillac Fleetwood the best-selling car in the US in 1958? You tell me!

* See All Historical Data for 67 countries by clicking on the title! *

With so many new readers coming on the site every day I thought a quick heads-up about Historical Data would be useful. 66 countries are now available on the site! Highlights are Germany for each year since 1946France for each year since 1949the UK for each year since 1965Brazil since 1954 and Norway since 1956. Given all my posts are ordered chronologically, the older the data, the further down the list it appears. I am working on an easier way to get to Historical Data here but for now the simplest way for you to check it out is either to:

– Click on the title of this post, scroll down below the fold and click on the country link to access all Historical Data for that country.

– Click on the country you want on the right hand side of the page, scroll down, click on ‘older entries’ and enjoy!

– Scroll down until you find dates on the right hand side of the page, click on the year you want and enjoy!

I am still updating the site as I receive more Historical Data and the next batch will cover France thanks to the amazing work of STAC!

The Lada 2101-3 was #1 car in USSR in the seventies, but how much did it sell? You tell me!

In the meantime, there are still a lot of patchy Historical Data areas and this is where you come in! Have a look below the jump at all missing periods and see whether you can help by sharing data you have that is not yet on the site… The most blatant needs are for the USA between 1928 and 1973 and 1987-1991, France for 1950-1957 and 1971-1978, Australia before 1996, Russia+China+India before 2002 and Japan before 1998…

If you can help, just comment on here and I will contact you via email.
