This is a detailed encyclopedic study of all models of cars produced by British manufacturers from 1945 to 1980. Over 700 individual models are covered in text entries totaling more than 250,000 words. Full specifications and performance figures are given, along with production numbers and dates. All the entries are illustrated with contemporary photographs from the archives - overall views, model variants, interiors, dashboards, engine bays, and cars rallying or racing. This range of photographs not only provides essential information but also builds up a panoramic view of motoring and the development of the car in the period.
