Synopsis: In the early 1930s, Henry Ford, father of the American automobile industry, made the daring decision to mass-produce the first low-priced V-8s. Meanwhile, his brilliant son, Edsel, and designer Bob Gregorie teamed up to create some of the most popular car styling in automotive history. The result of these endeavors was the fabulous Ford V-8 automobiles of the 1930s and 1940s, which combined a powerful engine with fantastic body design and styling.
