Searsheets Newletters

So you want to see the Searsheets Newsletters for Sears Automobiles? Well, you have found the right page.

The "Searsheet" was a newsletter published by Sears owner Hayden Shepley in the 1990's. Hayden was pationate about the history of the Sears and did a lot of research to try to acurately date a Sears by features and serial numbers. He also maintained a roster of members as he found them. These sheets include a lot of great information.

I believe that I have all of the issues that Hayden puplished represented here, but if you have an issue not shown here, then please scan each page at a high resolution and send each page to me as a jpeg image and I will include it here for all to have and use as a reference.

Thanks, and enjoy the data!!!
