Description

Coachbuilding is a subject of great fascination for many automotive enthusiasts, even though the golden age of individually coachbuilt bodies is now long in the past. From ACB of Paris (1934-91) to Zschau of Leipzig (1878-1939), by way of great names like Bertone, Pinifarina, Touring and Zagato, this is an alphabetical reference guide to the major coachbuilders of western continental Europe - Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain. The A-Z entries provide details of the history, activities and specialities of each coachbuilder, including the marques they bodied, while the book's broad time span encompasses both the great era of hand-crafted bodies and the more recent field of conversions and special bodywork.
