Description

This book is a comprehensive illustrated study of coachbuilders and coachbuilding in Britain. The author sets the scene by describing advances in fashions and techniques of coachbuilding in separate chapters on the 1920s, 1930s and the postwar period. He then gives a unique illustrated A-Z coverage of more than 300 British coachbuilders. In addition, there is a chapter offering useful advice on assessing the condition and likely repair needs of a coachbuilt body today.
