Ford Sportsman - Includes Mercury 1946-1948

In 1945 Henry Ford II and designer E.T. Gergorie got together and come up with the "Sportsman". A woodie convertible that they thought might perk up the warmed over 1942s that would become the 1946 models.
A prototype was built in October 1945 and was given a green light for full production. Sales were meager and production only lasted two years, but the "Sportsman" left an indelible mark on post World War II auto history.
This book gives you a close-up look at both the Ford and Mercury "Sportsman".

Fords of the Fifties

A complete work of art and information about Ford cars during this romantic decade of chrome, fins, and dual exhausts. Much of the color photography is by author Mike Parris, one of the country's foremost automotive photographers. Original photography and information from the archives of Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, and the Detroit Library's National Automotive Collection are also featured.

This is a must have for any classic car enthusiast. Parris blends a behind-the-scenes story of Ford Motor Company's survival and comeback from 1949 to 1959 with these beautiful images and details of classic Fords.
The company was losing 10 million dollars per month during the mid-1940's when 27-year-old Henry Ford II came back from the Navy to take charge and lead the company to one of the most successful decades in its history. After nearing the brink of bankruptcy, Ford Motor Company came bounding back with record profits, memorable products and dream cars that captured the minds of post-war America.
This book will become your best source of information for this great period in Ford automotive history.

Full Size Fords 1955-1970 - Detailed History of Full-Size Sedans and Wagons

By 1955, the one-size car to fit all-customers era ended, and by 1960, Ford offered compact, mid-size, and full-size cars. While Ford's Mustang and Thunderbird stole the headlines, Ford's full-size models, the Galaxies, Fairlanes, XL/500s, LTD, Crown Victorias, and others, delivered exceptional comfort, performance, and style in a variety of different trim levels and power train packages. For families, the full-size car was the chosen mode of transportation.

Many owners remember these cars from their youth, and hold them in high regard. These models populated the roads and garages because Ford offered a full range of cars with the base six-cylinder engines all the way up to the high-performance 429 cubic-inch V-8.

This is a fascinating retrospective of the cars - the design process, manufacturing, equipment packages, and a thorough listing of options, interior patterns, and paint codes. All models from 1955 to 1970 that brought Ford to dominance in the full-size category are revealed in compelling detail.
The introduction of the Galaxie, the development of the Skyliner retractable roof car, the radical redesign of the 1960 models to counter Chevy's new sedan, and much more is covered. Period magazine reviews provide insight and perspective of the driving experience and performance of various full-size models.
A fascinating retrospective on Ford Y-Block engines as well as Ford FE engine family and the new for 1970 Lima series engine is also provided. In addition, author David Temple examines Ford's racing exploits, featuring the dual-quad 427 Cammer engine, the Galaxie Grand National race car, and factory and lightweight drag cars.
