The Reliant Scimitar
The Scimitar GTE created a new market for executive sports estate cars in the late 1960s, its origins lying in the unglamorous three-wheelers produced by Reliant in the 1950s and the Scimitar GT coupé of the mid 1960s. With a foreword by famous owner, Princess Anne, this highly illustrated history draws on interviews with former Reliant employees and directors.
The Reliant Motor Company
Specializing in innovative and unusual vehicles, Reliant are best known for the economical Robin three-wheeler but also produced the much more fashionable Bond Bug and Scimitar GTE. This illustrated review of the marque traces its origins to the 7cwt van of 1935 and explores its many production models, one-offs and designs for niche and export markets up to its demise in 2002.
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 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.
