Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,460. Language: English. Published: December 3, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Transportation » Automotive / Antique & Classic, Nonfiction » Transportation » Automobiles
Tort lawsuits involving two Ford Crown Victoria owners are profiled in my e-book. Late 1950s indemnity suits weren't like 1970s cases vs. the Chevrolet Corvair and Volkswagen Beetle years later. However, justices in trial courts and appellate divisions began to rule against manufacturers that knowingly delivered cars made with obvious defects. Among these were flawed brake mechanisms on Fords.

Pre-1968 Corvettes had a fatal flaw. The cars could quickly become an inferno or flaming torch if they were hit in their rear ends by another auto traveling at a moderate rate of speed.
