Relive more than a century of automotive history with this fascinating, ready-to-color pictorial guide to the American automobile.

Illustrator A. G. Smith provides handsome, accurate drawings of 44 classic cars on display at the famed Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. Auto buffs will delight in coloring finely detailed representations of cars ranging from the historic Roper steam carriage (1865) to the Ford Escort (1981). Also included are remarkably accurate drawings of these vintage vehicles:

  • Ford Model A Runabout (1903)
  • Ford Model T (1909)
  • Detroit Electric (1914)
  • Packard Speedster (1929)
  • Willys Jeep (1943)

  • Chevrolet Bel Air (1955)
  • Ford Mustang (1965)
  • Pontiac CTO (1965)
  • . . . and 33 other memorable models—a number of which appear in full color on the book's covers.

Complementing the visual component of the book, Randy Mason, Curator of Transportation, Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, contributes an informative Introduction and a descriptive caption for each illustration.

Colorists and antique automobile buffs will love the realism and authenticity of these illustrations. What's more, they're copyright-free—a boon to artists, illustrators and designers in need of automobile-related graphics.
