British Microcars 1947-2002

British Microcars 1947-2002 by Duncan Cameron

149 x 210mm

Between the 1940s and the 1960s the microcar posed a challenge to large companies producing cars in huge volumes to a uniform pattern. The microcar was the opposite, produced by small entrepreneurial start-ups using quirky, unusual design concepts. This book is a beautifully illustrated history of British microcar history from the early days of Bond and Reliant, to the proliferation of micro marques during the 1950s and their demise during the 1960s. It explores many eccentric British concepts, but also includes the influential continental competitors. It examines the social and economic reasons for the disappearance of the type and the return of the microcar in the twenty-first century, showing how, like its mid-twentieth century counterpart, it is challenging the big company orthodoxy.
