The compact Jaguar saloons of the 1950s and 1960s were some of the most popular performance cars of their day, became a legend in their own time, and now are considered one of the most collectable of classics. In this fascinating, extensively illustrated book, Nigel Thorley describes the year by year history and development of the Jaguar Mark 1 and Mark 2 models, from the original design concept in the early 1950s, through to the final variants produced at the end of the 1960s. The author unearths many anecdotes and curiosities along the way, as well as covering the main body of evolution, to become the most popular and profitable models in the Jaguar range for many years. With a fabulous collection of period and specially commissioned photographs, this publication represents a feast of valuable information for anyone interested in general motoring history, Jaguar specific information, as well as for enthusiasts and owners of these fine cars.Out of print for some years, this popular book is now available again from Veloce as part of their Classic Reprint series.

About Author

Nigel Thorley has been an enthusiast of the Jaguar marque all his life, his father and elder brother owning numerous examples of the brand. Nigel acquired his first Jaguar at the age of 18 and has only ever been without an example when he first got married (due to lack of funds)! At the time of writing he has owned over 70 Jaguars including no less than 16 Mark 2 models, so knows the cars intimately. He was a founder member and director of the largest Jaguar club, the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club, and is still editing their monthly 140 page magazine. Nigel has also written over 20 titles on Jaguar topics, including You & Your Jaguar, Jaguar - All the Cars, Jaguar E-Type (also in the Great Cars series) and several Essential Buyer's Guides published by Veloce.
