Early Australian Automotive Design reveals new knowledge about one of the most significant Australian industries of the twentieth century, the automotive industry. It provides the first comprehensive account of the origins and early development of Australian vehicle design from the 1890s to the 1950s.

Five periods of Australian automotive design are examined: the early inventors/builders up to WW1 (1895-1916); opportunities that arose from an embargo on imported bodies (1917-1922); design and development of post war Australian cars (1919-1938); the development of the standardised motor body, its variations and unique body styles (1926-1938); and the opportunities afforded by WWII to design and produce an Australian car, principally the Holden (1939-1953).

This book explores the design effort of individual component designers, many who produced internationally successful automobile engines, transmission systems and suspension parts.
