Coventry's Motorcar Heritage - New Book

31 May 2012

A fascinating new book, the first of its kind covering the history of all of Coventry’s motorcar manufacturers, has just been published by The History Press, written by our very own Curator Damien Kimberley.

Coventry’s Motorcar Heritage is the first book to include histories of every single motorcar manufacturer  to have been based in Coventry during the development of the industry and at its peak as a motor-manufacturing city, and includes well over 200 archive photographs and ephemera from the Transport Museum’s collection.

This is Damien’s second book, having also written the hugely popular Coventry’s Motorcycle Heritage.

Coventry’s Motorcar Heritage is now on sale in the Transport Museum shop Past & Presents, priced £14.99.

Damien will also be signing and selling copies of his book at Coventry Car Day at Coventry University, from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 9th June.
