American Cars of the Fifities by Robert Genat

Book Description

In the 1950's the American auto industry arrived in style with the post-war boom! Flush and full of optimism, consumers wanted cars that reflected the spirit of their times, and car-makers happily obliged. Few would dispute that this was a time when autos were designed large, and this book pays tribute to all these mechanical marvels, the decade of whitewalls, craftsmanship, fine-tuned art on wheels, sweeping fins, glittering chrome, rumbling engines!Here are the cars Detroit came up with, drawing on the muscle and magic of the era, the unprecedented prosperity and new technologies and true feats of design, never seen before or since. In splendid full-color pictures and fact-filled text the book recreates the iconic era of American autos, one car at a time. From stylish sports cars like the Corvette and Thunderbird, to luxury Lincoln and Cadillac sedans to inimitable models from independents like Nash, Studebaker, Crosley, all in one handy to carry, easy-reference volume replete with glorious photographs this conveys the spirit and presence of these glorious cars at their very best!
