British Leyland: The Cars, 1968-1986

€35,95
  • Barcode: 9781785003912
In 1968, British Leyland brought together most of Britain's motor manufacturers, with the intention of creating a robust unified group that could equal the strength of the big European conglomerates. But this was not to be. There have been many books about the politics and the business activities of British Leyland, but British Leyland - The Cars, 1968 - 1986 looks deliberately at the cars that came from the company. The eighteen years of the corporation's existence saw a confusing multitude of different car types, but this book resolves these confusions, clarifying who built what, and when. The book takes 1986 as its cut-off because this was the year that the old British Leyland ceased to exist and what was left of the car and light commercial business was renamed the Rover Group. Topics covered include the production histories and technical specifications of every major model; special overseas models; appendices on engines, code names and factories and finally, classic buying guidacne is given on the models built in Britain.
