Lincoln Continental Performance Portfolio 1961-1969

To revive an ailing company the restyled 1961 Continental was a massive success. The styling was so liked that it remained basically unchanged until the new range was introduced in the 1970s. Initially available as a thin-pillar four-door sedan or convertible it also came as a two-door hardtop in 1966, early models had a 430ci V8 which was upgraded 462ci in 1966. The body was very rigid with top quality protection against rust. These factors were reflected in strong sales. This is a book of contemporary road tests, technical and specification data, new model intros, drivers reports, history, long term tests. 140 pages, 300 illus. Soft Bound

American Trucks of the 1950s

Availability:  10 copies in stock


This highly visual study covers the US and Canadian truck manufacturers that built trucks in North America in the 1950s. Following World War II, North American truck manufacturers responded to the prosperity of the 1950s with fresh designs and features. These rugged, reliable trucks were capable of transcontinental commutes of goods on a regular basis, or performing delivery and construction tasks in and around cities.

This concise volume covers not only the histories of the major and lesser known truck manufactures, but also the obscure, yet historically significant manufacturers such as Available, Biederman, Brown, Corbitt, Leyland Canada and others. Comprehensive captions and supportive text combine with contemporary brochures, period literature, road test info of the day, factory photographs and over fifty colour photos of restored American trucks, to relate the importance of these historic vehicles. Detailed shots of the engines and features focus on what it was that set certain manufacturers apart in this highly competitive market.

This succinct, factual book on American trucking provides a nostalgic look at a significant era in North American history.
