Hedonic Quality-Adjusted Price Indices for the American Automobile Industry, 1906-1941 [United States]

This data collection consists of prices and detailed attribute information for automobile models published in the contemporary trade press -- specifically the periodicals "Automotive Industries" and "Motor" -- at the time of the annual New York Auto Show from 1906 to 1941.
