Volk­swa­gen: The Air-Cooled Era in Colour £19.99

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

VW own­ers are hardly want­ing for rel­e­vant books, but Volk­swa­gen: The Air-Cooled Era in Colour fo­cuses on the mar­ket­ing and pro­duc­tion of post­war to 1970 VWs in a light, eas­ily ac­cessed way with very lit­tle te­dious data. Pretty 1940s and ‘50s styl­ized art­work gives way to the bru­tal hon­esty of the 1960s, and there’s a pleas­ing amount of Type 3 and Ra­zor Edge cov­er­age in­cluded. Great for the new­comer to the work of Bee­tles and buses, it’s a shame that the re­print doesn’t ex­tend the 411s en­try a lit­tle fur­ther. In fair­ness, there’s plenty of ma­te­rial out there for the wider air-cooled en­thu­si­ast, and this brings to­gether VW’s most sig­nif­i­cant mod­els at a great price.
