In American Cars of the 1950s, post-war dream cars take center stage with vivid photographs in stunning color. In the 1950s the American automobile industry arrived in style. In the postwar boom, Americans were flush and full of optimism. They wanted cars that reflected the spirit of the day, and automakers happily obliged. This beautiful book recreates the excitement of seeing the Detroit showrooms for the first time, and the feeling of possibility and the open road for car buyers. Thus began the decade celebrated in this nostalgic and informative book, the decade of fins and whitewalls, craftsmanship and bold colored, fine-tuned art on wheels.
Here are the cars that Detroit came up with, drawing on all the muscle and magic of the era, the unprecedented prosperity and new technologies and true feats of design. Manufacturers competed with one another to create innovative and original automobiles, and customers flocked to take in the show. In splendid, full-color pictures and fact-filled text, the book recreates the iconic era of American automobiles, one car at a time.
From stylish sports cars like the Corvette and Thunderbird, to luxury Lincoln and Cadillac sedans, to the inimitable models from independents like Nash, Studebaker, Crosley, American Cars of the 1950s conveys the spirit of automotive America at its best.
