The Last Real Austins ' 1946-1959, a brand new book by classic car collector, restorer and writer, Colin Peck is the latest in the Those Were the days ... series from Veloce Publishing. Austin remains unique as the only manufacturer to build everything from small family cars to large luxury limousines; taxicabs and military vehicles; sports cars and trucks. The Last Real Austins places in context how, when and where each model was used. Published by Veloce at '14.99, this new book examines how Austin bounced back after WWII, and how, despite the severe materials shortage, amazingly, managed to develop the largest range of vehicles produced by any automaker in postwar Britain. How these innovative vehicles were received and used in these markets is detailed, and the book is illustrated with rare archive photography depicting the weird, wonderful and the downright imaginative! Cars featured, include the bold, if not radical A90 Atlantic, the A40 Cambridge and the wooden-bodied A70 Hampshire Countryman shooting brakes.
