OVERVIEW
Car Model was published monthly by OLR Publishing with editorial offices at 30 East 20th St, New York. The publishers were A.M. (Oscar) Koveleski and Robert N. MacLeod. Oscar Koveleski ran Auto World, a mail order company providing the latest in car model and slot car kits, models and supplies. The editor was Bill Barnes, and the technical editor was Dave Shuklis.

A brief history on Dave Shuklis from an older version of the International Model Car Builder's Museum website. Starting in the early Sixties, model car pioneer Dave Shuklis led the way to high-tech building. Though crippled by muscular dystrophy, Dave distinguished himself as one of the earliest and best practioneers of the art. He developed working lights, roll-up windows, folding convertible tops, multiple engine vehicles and dozens of cutting edge model techniques. His work was featured extensively in Car Model and occasionally in Car Craft magazines.

Content was shaped based on feedback received at Auto World from 12-15 year old boys who wanted to advance their modeling skills.

The title was first published in July, 1962 on a bi-monthly schedule, then switched to a new full-sized format when it went to a monthly schedule in September, 1963. It continued through July, 1974. Mr Shuklis also died in 1974, and this may have hastened the demise of the magazine along with declining readership.
