Your in-depth colour illustrated guide to understanding, repairing and improving the electrical systems of British classic cars.

Electrical systems used in British cars in the period 1950 to 1980 have gained some notoriety, most of it unfavourable and much of it undeserved. This book shines a light on the subject, system by system, including the murkier corners. Whatever their foibles, the cars remain the cherished possessions of enthusiasts worldwide, and this book's contribution to making the electrical systems understandable and reliable will maintain the enjoyment the cars provide for many decades to come.

Based on the proven formulas of Rick Astley's previous, and much acclaimed book, MGB Electrical Systems, this book breaks down the electrical systems of classic British cars into separate and easily understandable sections.
