Park Ward The Innovative Coachbuilder is a major three-volume work on the pre-war history and cars of the great British coachbuilder. The company was the most prolific coachbuilder on Rolls-Royce and Bentley chassis, ultimately completing over 4,300 cars.
This superb book consist in 3 volumes in an elegant slipcase.
Volume I and II is the story of Park Ward & Co Ltd and covers the company's growing relationship with Rolls-Royce Ltd. A photographic record of all the Rolls-Royce models from Silver Ghost to the Wraith that carried Park Ward coachwork is included, along with chapters on the W. O. Bentley cars, and the Rolls-Royce and Bentley experimental cars with Park Ward coachwork. The Derby-built Bentleys follow, supported by chapters on the London Motor Show cars, coachwork on marques other than Rolls-Royce and Bentley, and examples of Park Ward advertising literature and catalogues. An appendix contains a series of articles written by `Bill' Ward, the company founder's son, entitled `The Art and Evolution of Coachbuilding'. Volume III contains extensive tables detailing each of over 3,000 pre-war Park Ward-bodied Rolls-Royce and Bentley, as well as a listing of over 1,000 Park Ward bodies on other marques. In addition and rarely seen before, there are over 700 sales order pages extracted from Park Ward's Finishing books.
