Are that prices handwritten on the drawing for various body repair sections?

It is a factory print, not a photocopy,and yes, it is noting the prices for individual repair/ replacement panels in Pounds, Shillings & pence!!! Really cool items, but really over a hundred buck's worth... WOW,!

Photocopy! One only has to look at the edges.

Sorry, Mark. To clarify my meaning. It is NOT an original blueprint, but assuming that the handwritten notations are actually written on the item for sale, it is likely to be a copy supplied by AC.
   I think whoever is spending over $120 on this needs to have more detailed information than we have available though, to avoid potential disappontment!
   I think Photocopiers from that period needed special paper, and what size is it? Looks like A1 folded down to A4, and the condition does appear very good for a piece of paper that`s 45 years old... The accompanying letter looks beyond question though!

Totally agree. The letter looks real to me too.

I seem to remember the word Roneo was used for this sort of thing rather than photocopiers which came later....?

I think its likley that the original is an film acetate,and printed off on sepia paper via an ammonia printer. Perhaps some one who has visited TD might know how all the AC marketing/draughting work was copied for serving client requests.

I cannot believe someone is asking $100+ for a bit of paper supplied freely by AC's years ago. I have the same old print, same drawing date in 1956, with the prices, slightly different, eg the bonnet is £8-10-0, handwritten on the panels in the same way. Yes its ammonia printer i think, and fades rapidly in daylight! I was sent it by AC's probably early 70's, as I bought the Ace in 69. The size is 74 x 48cm approx, not sure if thats A1. Its in an old file but not sure why ayone would want it? Nostalgia?!
   If that drawing gets people excited then what about several camshaft ones, rear spring etc etc all on the same medium and size. The cam ones are dated 1945, 1959, 1960. Cam profile dated 1960. There are about 7 of these in total.

You know that holiday home in the Bahamas you always wanted...[:D]
   
   btw, if you fold A1 in half 3 times, it is A4 sized!

What`s the betting then?
   Currently stalled at $122 with 3 hours to go, and the seller has reduced his reserve...
