Near Fine/Near Fine. 432 Pages 0713487496 Frederick Henry Royce, one of the most famous automobile engineers in motoring history, was born in 1863. For most of the 20th century, the cars that bear his name were and still are called 'The Best Car in the World'. This book provides a complete account of these very remarkable motor cars and the very remarkable men that designed, made and sold them. This book, first published in 1964 and revised several times since, is recognized as the classic tome on the classic car, the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club describing it as 'that outstanding work of reference...still the basic R-R work of reference and the best. ' This edition brings the story bang up to date. The book is divided into two parts: part one gives a fascinating, authoritative and wholly engrossing account of the Rolls-Royce story, written with the blessing of the factory. It includes the sale to Volkswagen and the outlook for Rolls-Royce as part of the BMW group from 2003 onwards. It is illustrated with an unparalleled collection of photographs. Part two of the book consists of detailed car and engine specifications, including dates of major mechanical changes and the chassis numbers concerned of the three Royce cars, of all Rolls-Royce cars from 1904 to the Park Ward model of 2000, and the Bentley cars built by Rolls-Royce since 1931.
