    AMCO/MG Mitten Catalog?

    Mornin', Guys!

    I have a new-in-the-box set of AMCO side curtain covers for the Victor TF I'm building. They look like they will fit the TF frames that I have, but I'd like to verify that they're for a TF. There's a shipping label inside from MG Mitten, and I'm assuming they were bought from them. If so their catalog may have listed it, using AMCO's numbering. Don't remember whether AMCO had its own catalog... Tried searching online but came up empty.

    Anyway, the number stamped on one of the outside edges of the carton is 4534. If anyone here has a reference listing and can tell me what that number signifies (if anything...), I'd really appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance,
    Mickey

    ISTR AMCO products were only distributed through outfits like Marion's MG Mitten nd Oscar's Auto World catalogs. I don't remember ever seeing AMCO in a dedicated catalog... but we're talking some number of decades betwixt then and now. And I'm OLD now.

    Doc -

    My recollection as well. I worked at an import parts store in Metairie LA waaaay back when, and we stocked AMCO accessories. Seems like there was a catalog, but it may have been available only to stores/dealers.

    Yup. Had an independent import parts shop in Hampton, VA, back in the early '70's that had AMCO goods and Beck Arnley, along with Lockheed, Bendix, Lucas, etc. Those days are gone, Bro.

    Place I worked was a Beck Arnley dealer as well. Muffler bearings were the hot ticket item...
