Dedicated to Jaguar's formative years, and the company's evolution from SS, through SS Jaguar to Jaguar, this book provides an in-depth study of the growth of SS Cars Limited during the world's worst economic depression. The relationship with the Standard Motor Company is covered in full, along with a detailed technical survey covering the progression of design from 1928 to 1950. Many previously unknown facts are disclosed in this historically important work, and the book is copiously illustrated with contemporary photographs. This book is available again after a long absence, now reprinted under Veloce's 'Classic Reprint' banner.
