Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"

Besides the familiar Fords and Chryslers, plenty of less-well remembered models from marques such as Packard and De Soto are featured – there's even an Austin Seven-derived American Bantam woody. Engrossing, informative and good value." – Octane"

These quirky little softbacks are something of a pocket-sized breath of fresh air." – American Car"

… covers sedans and convertibles as well as the more traditional station wagons, with many beautiful colour studies of concours-grade surviving examples. There's also a wealth of period publicity material portraying the whole way of life for which these cars were built." – Classic Cars"

With some potted history of each decade's developments and lengthy detailed captions, this is a treasure trove of mostly contemporary photos of wagons and woodies, plus reproductions of some wonderful brochure material. There's a lot to enjoy." – NZ Classic Car
