1945-1960 American 'Independent' Automakers History Book

Price: $30.00
The product is currently out of stock. Price subject to change.

The book is an overview of the attempts by major makes, such as Kaiser-Frazer, Willys, Packard, Studebaker, Tucker, Nash, and Hudson, to compete with the 'Big Three' in America. The 'Independents' were the first to introduce all-new models after the war in an attempt to increase their market share and ensure the future.


Detailed captions and supportive text combine with the use of contemporary brochures, period literature, factory photos, and over 90 new, previously unpublished color photos of restored examples to relate the importance of these historic vehicles. This book looks at all the major makers, focusing on the innovations, unique styling and features, and why, ultimately, all failed.
