THE American muscle cars always make good copy, writes Nigel Wigmore.

Ford Midsize Muscle — Fairlane, Torino & Ranchero by Marc Cranswick (Veloce, £30) is no exception.

It details the evolution of Ford’s family car through the golden era of Detroit.

It chronicles how Henry Ford took the no-frills Fairlane, added more zing to create the Torino, and then satisfied America’s luxury desires with the LTD II.

It also relives the showroom and racetrack battles fought in the evolution of Ford’s midsize muscle cars, and details the creation of the first car-based pickup — the Ranchero.



Included in the book is 200 never published before pictures plus original art, a continuous timeline from 1950 to 1980, a Ford Super Index, the evolution of the Ford muscle car, Ford in racing — drag strip and NASCAR — and also features the Starsky & Hutch Gran Torino.
