In 1945 Henry Ford II and designer E.T. Gergorie got together and come up with the “Sportsman. A woodie convertible that they thought might perk up the warmed over 1942s that would become the 1946 models. A prototype was built in October 1945 and was given a green light for full production. Sales were meager and production only lasted two years, but the “Sportsman” left an indelible mark on post World War II auto history. This book gives you a close-up look at both the Ford and Mercury “Sportsman”.
