American-designed tractors such as Fordsons and John Deeres were among the first vehicles working British fields in the early 20th century but Harry Ferguson's innovation of a versatile three-point linkage system made the Ferguson TE20 a popular choice after the Second World War. This illustrated guide reviews the most popular models built or used in Britain up to the present day, with brief company histories for over 30 famous marques from Allis-Chalmers to Zetor.
The Leyland Atlantean
The rear-engined, front-entry layout of the Leyland Atlantean double-decker bus was not an entirely new idea when it appeared in 1958, but with the economics of the industry changing, it did prove to be the formula universally adopted in the decades to come. This book tells the story of the model through a series of colour photographs of buses in service around the country from the 1960s to the 1980s.
The A–Z of Three-Wheelers
A Definitive Reference Guide
Chiefly associated with the cheap and unfashionable Reliant Robin or the quirky bubble cars of the 1950s, the three-wheeler has in fact been the platform for a variety of vehicles from runabouts and microcars to small vans and sports cars. This illustrated encyclopedia reviews hundreds of examples, from Cugnot's steam car of 1769 to Morgan's currently available '3 Wheeler', and includes production models and prototypes from major manufacturers as well as the eccentric experiments of enthusiastic individuals.
After the War was Over
The Pearson's of Liverpool Story
In 1939, with war looming, Pearson's coachbuilding works in Liverpool was earmarked by the government for military production. During the next six years, thousands of crated kits for military vehicles were imported from America and Canada and assembled by the company. When the war ended, Pearson's bought up the surplus of kits and remodelled the vehicles for commercial sale. This book presents a collection of previously classified photographs depicting Pearson's vehicles over a ten-year period between 1939 and 1949. Copies signed by the authors.
