Hi Guys,

I’m new to Dolomite ownership. What are the best books to buy regarding the history and devlopment of our cars? In particularly, a book which will outline the differences between earlier and later cars (useful as my cars an early one).

Best regards,

Jordan

Some of this information is freely available. Rimmer Bros outline it in their Dolomite catalogue which is available from them free of charge. The Dolomite development story is also documented on the AROnline website and can be found HERE
