Bolstered by a postwar economic boom, the American auto industry in the 1950s parlayed robust sales into groundbreaking designs and technologies. This exciting new photohistory examines Dearborn's contribution to American automotive innovation during that heady period. From the Forty-Niner in which Ford rode into the decade through cars like the Club Coupe, Sunline, and Galaxie, this year-by-year history prefaces each chapter with a brief overview and timeline, followed by look at each model in the company's new product line, examinations of engineering changes and breakthroughs, and explanations of the year's sales and marketing efforts. Illustrated throughout with photographs from the Ford archives, this book is sure to appeal to Ford fans and general automotive enthusiasts, alike. Final chapters cover Ford concept cars of the 1950s, the company's international markets of the period, and a look ahead to the 1960s.
