The result of more than 40 years collecting and research by both authors, The Australian Story chronologically charts the impact of Buick down under, reproducing many stories from the 'Australian Buick Bulletin' as well as articles and advertising from contemporary magazines, newspapers, sales brochures and more, over 457 pages. The popularity of Buicks with Governments and the military, Buick ambulances, racers, record setters, the forgotten Marquette and even a Buick ute (!) are featured in this comprehensive volume, illustrated with 750 photos. While Buick assembly finished in Australia in 1948, the book covers American model year production up to 1979, with brief closers on Buick engines, clubs and the Holden Statesman-based Buick Royaum for the Chinese market.
