This product is currently sold out.
If you can remember the cars of the 1960s, then you'll love this blast back in time to when vehicles were more distinctive, driving was still fun and buying a new car was a thrilling family event.
In Australia, Holden was king but the Ford Falcon and Chrysler Valiant both had large followings while imports like the Morris Mini, MG, Zephyr and Consul attracted a fair share of buyers
It was a golden period for iconic classic cars from Britain - the Mini Cooper, Jaguar E-type, AC Cobra and MGB - but also a time when British manufacturers really got their act together with stylish family models. Who can forget great little runabouts with evocative names like Anglia, Herald, Imp, Viva, Cortina and Hunter?
Meanwhile, Rovers, Triumphs and Jags were delighting executives who loved a bit of style both in Britain and Australia.
It was too good to last, of course, with cheaper imports creeping on to the world's driveways by the end of the decade.
This is a richly illustrated book in which Giles Chapman recalls all the key cars of the era, most of which were seen on our roads in Australia and brings the swinging '60s back to life.
