Anglo-American cars from 30s to 70sThis new book from Veloce Publishing's Those Were The Days ... series, details British cars powered by American engines, and American cars fitted with British power plants, built between the 1930s and the 1970s. Many of the American-powered British makes offered for sale were constructed with everything from trials and rallies to road racing in mind. For enthusiasts, the American V8 in a British chassis provided fast, reliable touring at a relatively low cost. In contrast, the American cars fitted with British power plants were often designed for economy. So, whatever you were looking for, you'd get the best of both worlds! Brochures, period literature, road test info of the day, factory press kits, and over one hundred photos, including sixty colour photos of restored examples, provide detailed shots of the engines and styling that set these Anglo-American cars apart. Includes: AC Cobra, Allard, American Austin/Bantam, Arnolt MG and Bristol, Atalanta, Batten, Bristol, Brough Superior, Deruyne, Gordon-Keeble, Jensen, JAG, JMB, Kieft, Lammas-Graham, Liedart, Marendez, Nash-Healey, Nash/Hudson/AMC Metropolitan, Railton, Sunbeam Tiger, Trident, TVR and Griffith, Warwick. This beautifully detailed book, which provides decade by decade information, allows for direct comparison of the vehicles built over that 40-year period and is available now from bookshops or from www.velocebooks.com.
