American Classics 1946-1970

New York: Exeter Books, 1988. 1st Edition. Oblong folio, publisher's glossy photo-illustrated paper-covered boards, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

"Longer, lower, wider, faster" – showcase of American cars, from the sturdy Buick Roadmaster and Chrysler Town & Country of the late 1940s, to the powerful Chevrolet V-8 and Ford Thuderbird of the 1950s, to the Corvette Stingray, Ford Mustang, and other sporty muscle cars of the 1960s: "In an age of standardisation and rationalisation, of economics and ergonomics, car design seems to have lost much of its flair and pizazz, making us appreciate all the more the creations that graced the classic post-war era of American car production." Illustrated throughout with color photos, and with descriptive text identifying each car and its collector-owner. Light edgewear to unclipped dust jacket. Near fine. Item #120
