Some of the best sources for information on these old boats are the special boating interest / trade magazines of the day: MotorBoating, Popular Boating, Marine Dealer, and Boating Industry.

One of my current projects is posting advertisements from the February 1958 issue of Outdoor life. Instead of an in-depth review of a few models, this issue took the shotgun approach of posting small photos of many different models from many boat builders. When added to the usual commercial advertisements this makes for a boon of information:
