    Ford Custom 1951

    Amazingly primitive car, - in fact, the same pre-war design. Just compare it, say, to the 1950 Lancia Aurelia on all items - chassis, engine, transmission, running gear...

    Ford Cardinal

    The sub-compact Cardinal should have arrived, in 1961 model year, as the first (post-war) American front-drive passenger car. Yet, Ford Motor has handed the project over to its German division, and the would-be Cardinal was built - complete with the original V4 engine - as Taunus 12M.

    Renault 4CV

    In 1947, Renault introduced its first post-war model - the small vehicle of rear-engine layout. Yet, being extremely "tail heavy", the car complete with dreadful swing axle at the rear was "unsafe at any speed". A shame.

    VW Karmann Ghia (1955)

    In 1955, the graceful coupe arrived as arguably the world first passenger car with curved side glass. And frameless door windows looked utterly different, in the mid-50s.

    Jaguar S-type (1963)

    The magnificent yet little-known model was embowered by the famed E-type and Mk X. The car often is mixed up with Mk II though S-type was distinguished by the advanced rear suspension. At that, as regards handling and roadholding, front suspension is nothing while this rear is everything..

    Ferrari 275GTB (1964)

    The 275 model range parted with archaic running gear typical of the 250 range. The road going super sport finally adopted independent rear suspension of the layout that FIAT 8V pioneered in 1952, and AC Ace reiterated in 1953. Moreover, the 275 cars were distinguished by the gearbox mated to...

    AC Ace (1953)

    Since 1956, Ace was driven by the ultra long stroke Bristol OHV six that, in fact, ascended to the pre-war BMW works. Turn attention to the rear suspension: kinematicaly, it was equivalent to the double transverse arms arrangement - just like this front. That's the secret of the Cobra ensuing...
