Shelby Cars in Detail

by Frank Barrett and Boyd Jaynes

Led by renowned driver and tuner Carroll Shelby, in the 1960s the Shelby American company produced and raced the iconic cars: the Cobra, the GT40 and Mk. IV, and the GT350. Using stunning original studio photographs by Boyd Jaynes and authoritative text by automotive historian Frank Barrett, Shelby Cars in Detail profiles a fascinating array of cars from the Shelby American Collection, Shelby's official museum. They include the Cobra's predecessor, the A.C. Ace-Bristol; race and street variants of 289 and 427 Cobras; the Daytona and Willment Coupes; the GT40 and innovative, high-tech Ford Mk IV J-Car; and the earliest GT350.

It presents the chassis histories of each of these fascinating cars, leading the reader through their individual specifications, provenance, and racing performances. Along with such well-known Shelby drivers as Ken Miles, Bob Bondurant, Dan Gurney, and Mario Andretti, the book also shares the racing exploits of fascinating independents, including Bob Johnson, Tom Payne, Dan Gerber, and Tommy Hitchcock.

The individual features of each Shelby car are displayed to even greater effect through the dynamic studio photography of Boyd Jaynes. His immaculately composed pictures reveal the tiniest facets of engines, bodywork, and cockpit components, as well as providing full views of each model.
