Description:
This is the first book to cover the little known car production of the famous Birmingham Small Arms company (BSA). BSA had its roots in gun manufacture in Birmingham and then expanded to included bicycles and then motorcycles. However, they also built a car in 1929 and decided to invest further in cars, first by buying the successful Daimler and Lanchester car companies and then developing their own models, including three wheelers and conventional sports tourers.

The BSA front wheel drive cars, which included the Threewheeler, the FW32 and T9 models and the Scout, were ground-breaking designs as BSA virtually pioneered the concept of front wheel drive which has been used by most car manufacturers ever since. Due to a variety of problems, however, car production ceased before the Second World War.

Drawing on his technical background in the aeronautical world and full access to unique photography and illustrations from the BSA archive as well as the BSA Front Wheel Drive Club, Graham Skillen has produced a unique book that will be of interest not only to BSA fans but to classic car enthusiasts in general.
