OVERVIEW
Off-Road Vehicles was published by Argus Publishers Corporation.  The founder was Gordon Behn, who worked previously for Petersen Publishing as the circulation manager.

The magazine was started as a quarterly magazine with the first issue in the Summer, 1969. After the first year, it went to a bi-monthly schedule, and then monthly with either the July, 1972 issue. Around the same time it went monthly, the title was changed to Off-Road Vehicles & Adventure. After the May, 1974 issue, it was re-titled again to Off-Road.

The magazine was a general off-road oriented title and covered off-road racing including Baja, dune buggies, Detroit 4-wheel drive trucks, motorcycles, snow mobiles, and how-to articles with both technical aspects and practical matters like tophographical map reading.

PUBLICATION DATA:
At the point where the title changed in 1975, the publisher reported an average monthly net paid circulation of just under 12,000.
