Description

Ford Midsize Muscle – Fairlane, Torino & Ranchero details the evolution of Ford's family car through the golden era of Detroit.

See how Henry took the no-frills Fairlane, added more zing to create the Torino, and then satisfied America's luxury desires with the LTD II. Relive the showroom and racetrack battles fought in the evolution of Ford's midsize muscle cars, and witness the creation of the first car-based pickup – the Ranchero. Above all, this book is an account of Ford being ahead of the game.

Through formal study of the postwar American car market, Marc Cranswick brings valuable insight to the topic of muscle cars.
