9781456777586: They Found Our Engineer: The Story of Arthur Goddard. The Land Rover's first Engineer

The British Land Rover 4x4 has grown from 1948 to become one of the world's leading automotive brands. Exactly how it all came together back in the late 1940s and early 50s has been the topic of interest and debate for many years. This was until two Australian enthusiasts, Michael Bishop and Alex Massey quite literally stumbled across senior member of the original Land Rover development team, Arthur Goddard living in Brisbane, Australia in 2009. The discovery led to many of the myths and tales surrounding the early vehicles to be heard as it happened from Arthur's point of view. Then to a trip by Arthur to visit his old work place in Solihull and to the vehicle that he helped bring to life back in 1948. The book contains both a technical and human side to this incredible story as well as a great reunion between Arthur and his old colleague Spen King who went onto design the Range Rover in the 1960s. This is truly a unique story from the time of post War World two Britain to modern day Australia and how the iconic 4x4 grew up so quickly in the 1950s to become the world leader that it is today.

About the Author :

Michael Bishop was born in Melbourne, Australia. From a very young age he has been fascinated in anything mechanical. Michael started writing at school in the late 1980s, in local car club magazines about his research into cars and Land Rovers. He keeps researching and writing when ever he gets the chance.

Review :

"Beneath the historical info, there is a cracking account of one man's life that will appeal to many." - Classic and Sports Car  

"Arthur Goddard was the Rover Company's Assistant Chief Engineer from 1949 until 1957. It's his story - and a lot more - that Michael tells in this fascinating book. Brilliant Stuff" - Land Rover Owner

This book is a must for anyone interested in the story of the Land Rover and the British motor industry itself. Full marks to Michael for getting the full story into print, and in such an entertaining manner. Land Rover Monthly
