Crosley: A Very Fine Car is an in-depth illustrated history of America?s first compact car, its beginnings as a rough, back-of-the-napkin sketch in 1937, to its life beyond production and into the 21st Century. The Crosley introduced such revolutionary innovations as disc brakes, the first SUV, a do-it-all farm vehicle, the Cobra engine with its sheet-metal block, surprising styling tricks, retail-store marketing, fuel economy that Detroit still hasn?t equaled. Includes some never before published facts and photos.
