A medium priced car from one of the major American car manufacturers (Willys-Overland) of the 1920s, the Willys-Knight was built from 1914-1933.  Willys was known primarily for Jeep production after the war, forming the Jeep brand that is now owned by DaimlerChrysler.

Our review:  I believe this book to be the finest achievement in the history of automotive journalism.  Author Beverly Rae Kimes has put together the work of a lifetime in nearly 1600 pages and over 5,000 photos.  The completeness of this book is breathtaking--it includes car manufacturers that never got past the stage of announcements for cars that were never built! For the larger manufacturers, there are specs, stats, options, and even a contemporary (if sometimes guesstimate) priceguide. You can get lost for hours in this exceedingly well-written book. Very highly recommended.
