Walker Nick

A-Z British Coachbuilders 1919-1960

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. Then comes by the main A-Z section, giving entries on firms from Abbey Coachworks to James Young. This is followed by two new sections: first, A-Z entries on 58 additional firms active in the 1919-39 period; and second, alphabetical coverage of 64 companies which came into coachbuilding after 1945. A chapter offering useful advice on assessing the condition, and likely repair needs, of a coachbuilt body is provided, followed by a glossary of coachbuilding terms and what they mean. More than 420 photographs, 50 of them in colour, illustrate coachbuilding fashions and techniques as well as the work of individual coachbuilders.
