GREAT BRITISH CARS OF 1920s TO 1970s

OCTOPUS PUBLISHING    Book Number: 85343    Product format: Paperback

A big glossy showcase telling the fascinating story of the motorcar's extraordinary evolution and highlighting some of the most iconic vehicles ever produced in this country. Important, interesting, exciting or desirable are the criteria, these cars are capable of stirring all sorts of emotions, especially if it is a vintage model. Whether it is your fantasy to roar off behind the wheel of a Jaguar E-Type 'The most beautiful car ever made' according to Enzo Ferrari, to be swept off in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II, take to the motorway at top speed in an Aston Martin Vantage V8 or go for a Sunday drive down the country lanes in Morris Minor or an old MG, here is a book to linger over. There is Morse's old Jaguar, the stylish Alvis Sports Saloon from the 30s, the Austin 7, the Bentley 8L, the Lagonda V12 and in the 1940s the Healey Sportsmobile and Silverstone, the Sunbeam Talbot 90, in the 50s the Austin Healey 100 and Sprite, the Daimler Majestic Minor, the Ford Zephyr Mk2, the Lagonda 3.0 Litre, the Lotus Elite which was attractive, but was beauty enough to compensate for bad manners? With production details for each, engine size performance and what you should know, here are glamorous cars befitting of a Hollywood studio going right through to the good old Ford Escort, Capri Mk1, the Jensen Interceptor and FF to the Range Rover Classic, TVR 3000S and more. Truly a golden age recaptured with original photography and ephemera and information on cars' origins and influence. 176 very large softback pages, colour.
