The preparation of this book took many months but the material used to provide the research took over twenty years to accumulate. Amanco Engines is not, and wasn’t intended to be, a conglomeration of technical data, but its aim it to paint an overall picture of Associated Manufacturers’ Company, how it began and operated, especially from its London offices. It is to help the enthusiast, and rally/show visitor alike, to identify the various Amanco (Associated) engines as well as to ascertain which the true American built models are, and which are not.
Not all engines named ‘Associated’ were built by that firm. Not all engines called ‘Amanco’ came from it either. The name ‘Amanco’ was NOT used on engines sold in the USA. All these points are dealt with in this book which also includes a guide to engine dating, hints on colour schemes etc.
After reading this book you will be able to identify an Amanco or Associated engine when you next see one!
