Product Description

About the Author

James Taylor has been writing professionally about cars since the late 1970s, and his interests embrace a wide range of older cars of all makes and nationalities, as well as classic buses, lorries and military vehicles. However, he also enjoys keeping abreast of current special-interest models such as the BMW M3, because, he believes, today's interesting cars are tomorrow's classics. James has written well over 100 books in all, and among them have been several definitive one-make or one-model titles, including a number for Crowood. He lives in rural Oxfordshire.

First Sentence
As the Second World War shuddered to an end in 1945, it was by no means certain that Rolls-Royce would ever resume the manufacture of motor cars. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The "Original" series of books takes a particular model of car for its production period and describes it in words and pictures like no other books do. There is so much information on the immediate post-war Rolls Royce and Bentley cars in this book that it's almsot overwhelming. Every model is covered, every production change is noted and described, every feature is explained, and the beautiful full colour photography by Mark Dixon is a joy to admire. James Taylor is a well known automotive researcher and writer and he does himself proud with this volume. It must be an essential item on the shelves of every Rolls Royce fan and is an invaluable source of information on these beautiful automobiles. I have no reservations in recommending this book.

Excellent book on details not seen elsewhere Dec 22 2009
By Bentley Maven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm in the process of restoring a 1947 Bentley Mark VI and this book has been very helpful in details about the car that I have not seen elsewhere. The pictures are outstanding quality, and although it is not intended to be an A to Z restoration book, it is very informative historically.

By docaudio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am by no means a collector of RR / Bentley cars, but I am looking to get an S-1 or S-2, and I found this book a source of info to at least know what should be found on a properly maintained car, and what would have been non-stock modifications.
This book is good, but because it covers a wide range Nov. 24 2014
By Bryce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is good, but because it covers a wide range, the detail of each model is less than in some of the 'original' series.
