The Chain-Drive Frazer Nash

£39.99

Product description

No car was more individual, no car was more sporting in character than the pre-war chain-driven Frazer Nash. It stemmed from an equally fascinating cyclecar, also of sporting character, the G.N.
In this fascinating book David Thirlby, a qualified mechanical engineer who had raced Frazer Nashes in the past and who became Registrar of the Frazer Nash section of the Vintage Sports Car Club, looks at how these two makes came into being, how they were made as they were, the impact they made on their owners and the competition world; more he sorts out the complex range of G.N.and Frazer Nash production and racing models, the various engines used in them and the 'specials' that were developed from them. The car-by-car register of every Frazer Nash produced forms a valuable Appendix to this authentic history of one of Britain's greatest sports car.

Containing many black and photographs, the book is in very good condition, the dust jacket being covered in cellophane, the price is unclipped and the pages clean and bright . A definite 'must' for vintage car enthusiasts
