British factories were not immediately able to get back into car production so many servicemen, who had learned to drive and had money from their demobilization grants to spend, looked to America. In 1919, two out of every five cars on British roads were Fords built in England, and in 1925, General Motors took over British manufacturer Vauxhall. Hudson also became a prolific assembler during this time and Chrysler built an assembly plant in Kew. This book features numerous photographs and commentary on many makes of American cars that could be seen on British roads before World War II. Cadillac, Chrysler, Durant, Duryea, Essex, Ford, Jewett, La Salle, Oldsmobile, Overland, Packard, Plymouth, Studebaker, and Stutz are among the manufacturers of those cars.
