Palley's War Surplus Catalog, 1954

Palley Supply Co. WW II War Surplus Catalog 1954 featuring a wide array of WW II war surplus materials as well as other goods. Provides a fascinating look into the technology of U.S. WW II military equipment and how these state-of-the-art goods were later offered to the civilian market.

Most notable are the surplus aircraft hydraulic parts, very sought after by traditionalists. Early cylinders, pumps, dumps, and fittings can be seen in this scan. These are the parts that would have been used by X-Sonic and X54, known as the first cars to have hydraulic-controlled suspensions.
