This book comes out of a series that Consumer Guide published. I, being frugal, only bought the 60's one. I enjoyed it so much, I tracked down the 70's and recently 50's version. These 3 are, IMO, a must for any "car guy" (or Gal)

This book comes out of a series that Consumer Guide published. I also have their book on Cars of the Fascinating 40s. I think they also have books on cars of the 60s and 70s. The books are a large format with a generous number of pages. Some photos are of contemporary show cars, others are vintage publicity or advertising illustrations. These 3 are, IMO, a must for any "car guy" (or Gal). Lots of NICE photos, and illistrations,mostly factory images, I believe.

The book says about 1952, "Despite production cutbacks by almost all automakers in the face of the Korean War, sales begin to slump and cars pile up at dealers. In 1953 Chevy came out with the Corvette to try to capture the sports car market from foreign automakers whose sports cars were shipped to the States by returning GI's or brought over later by GI's who had driven them "over there" while helping to keep the peace in post-war Germany. It was the babe-magnet of the '50s, and everyone knew it. Well, unless you could afford a Corvette, or one of the new Thunderbirds just introduced by Fords.

This book comes out of a series that Consumer Guide published. I also have their book on Cars of the Fascinating 40s. I think they also have books on cars of the 60s and 70s

The books are a large format with a generous number of pages. There are plenty of color photos and most are close to half-page sized. Some photos are of contemporary show cars, others are vintage publicity or advertising illustrations. They're all great photos. The book also shows some color cards that have all the paint colors that were available for that year.

The book is organized by year, then by manufacturer (GM, FoMoCo, etc.), and finally by division or marquis. The book isn't 100% comprehensive for each model though they do have information on most models. For example, I noticed a business coupe wasn't shown for one year but they showed one for that brand in a later year.

I have a few of these general interest auto books and this would be amongst the better ones because it combines an expanded amount of text along with higher quality illustrations.

America's 1950s cars are loved all over the world, especially by people who grew up with them ir drove them brand new.

Absolutely complete collection of ALL 1950 - 1959 Autos. Great gift for car buffs, mechanics, history lovers, and anyone who just loves the classic American Car... Bright lights, huge engines, and first class luxury all the way.

High Quality paper, packed full of hundreds of photos, with great descriptions of each car and the flow of history nkt only of the Auto industry, but of the progress and feelings towards cars in the Golden Age of USA.

A great book; I was/am very happy with it. I've already loaned it out a couple of times, so get a copy for yourself before my friends order theirs'. Thanks, Dave (in Colorado)

Got this for my Car enthusiast husband to complete a series of CARS through the decades. Find them interesting with the discussion of what was going on during the times the cars were manufactured. Great coffee table books.

This "Cars of the Faboulas Fifties" book, is part of a series(50's, 60's and 70's cars). I saw all 3 at Costco, years ago. I, being frugal, only bought the 60's one. I enjoyed it so much, I tracked down the 70's and recently 50's version.

These 3 are, IMO, a must for any "car guy" (or Gal). Lots of NICE photos, and illistrations,mostly factory images, I believe. All are unmodified, stock appearing cars.

One drawback to looking at these books, you'l long for days gone by, when American Cars were KING and the factories offered SO MANY models and bodystyles!! Buy an AMERICAN CAR, today and restore our manufacturering base!
