From the cover: “The Light Car is now an essential adjunct of the social order, and is used for a great variety of purposes from town shopping to continental travel. This book, which is the first to outline comprehensively the history and development of the Light Car from 1895 to the present day, describes the many general forms and a large proportion of the individual designs which, during this period of sixty years, have contributed to the efficient light cars of today. In addition, the development of the essential sub-assemblies, ancillaries and accessories are surveyed, including engines, clutches, gearboxes, transmissions, chassis, bodies, brakes, wheels, carburettors, ignition, lighting and engine-starting systems, tyres and instruments.”
