Kaiser-Frazer 1946-1955 Photo Archive Kaiser-Frazer 1946-1955 Photo Archive

This new book by veteran auto writer Patrick Foster- America’s spokesman for independent cars- tells the full story of Kaiser-Frazer’s struggle to succeed in an industry that killed so many competitors.

One year after announcing plans to enter the automobile business with an all-new car Kaiser-Frazer production began. The cars were an immediate hit. Thousands lined up to see and buy the new Kaiser and Frazer cars. In time K-F introduced hardtops, sedans, convertibles, an impressive fiberglass sports car and a line of low-priced compact cars.

But competition eventually proved overwhelming and Kaiser-Frazer production ended. The company itself survived by purchasing Willys-Overland, and building Jeep vehicles instead of cars.

The Kaiser-Frazer story is a tale of exciting ideas, bold plans, and thwarted ambition. A heartbreaking yet uplifting allegory of men and automobiles during the most exciting era the industry has ever known.
