The lack of information on body engineering and the demand for reprints of the articles which were published in Motor Vehicle Monthly led me to te-arrange and re-write these articles so that they could be incorporated in book form. Body engineering has made tremendous strides in the last few years and the writer has endeavored to collect all the data possible which would interest the body engineer and the student.
The possibilities of this profession are very good, and it is hoped that the book will be of help to the student as well as the engineer. The Scope and aims of the body engineer were outlined in a paper by the present writer, read before the Society Of Automotive Engineers, in New York, January 12, 1921, and the following extracts will make this preface complete.
