Fords of the Fifties by Michael Parris. Fords of the Fifties is a work of art and information about Ford cars during this romantic decade of chrome, fins and dual exhausts. Original photography and information from the archives of Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, and the Detroit Librarys National Automotive Collection are also featured. Parris blends a behind-the-scenes story of Ford Motor Companys survival and comeback from 1949 to 1959 with these beautiful images and details of classic Fords. The company was losing $10 million per month during the mid-1940s when 27-year old Henry Ford II came back from the Navy to take charge and lead the company to one of the most successful decades in its history. After nearing the brink of bankruptcy, Ford Motor Company came bounding back with record profits, memorable products and dream cars that captured the minds of post-war America. In this story of success and fabulous cars Parris captures the essence of the company during the 1950s through research at the Ford Motor Company archives, and in interviews with executives from the period.
