is the definitive history of one of Britain's oldest, most important and
influential car manufacturers. George Singer started building bicycles
in Coventry in 1874 and by 1905 his company was building cars and
motorcycles too. Later the company would concentrate on the manufacture
of cars and commercial vehicles, bringing great success in sales and
motorsport until, in the early 1950s, things began to go wrong. By 1955
Singer was absorbed into the Rootes Group and slowly lost its
distinctive identity. In 1970 the last car to carry a Singer badge was
built - marking the end of the great Coventry marque and hammering
another nail into the coffin of Britain's once great motor industry.
Thoroughly researched and with nearly 300 photos this is an important
piece of automotive history.
