Product description

The Singer Story by Kevin Atkinson 

Here 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 over 300 photos this is an important piece of automotive history.
