Colin's latest also provides great insight into the background and development of the whole Mustang project at Shelby American with the project's leader, Chuck Cantwell, as well as commentary from those who assisted in making these great cars. It's all here, history, passion, racing and absolute perfection in the form of Concours level photography. An exceptional and highly recommended book!"
Early in his career, CARROLL SHELBY's accomplishments as a race car driver included breaking land-speed records at Bonneville and winning Le Mans in 1959 with teammate Roy Salvadori. As a team manager, Carroll was part of the FIA World Grand Touring Championship as well as the Ford GT victories at Le Mans. When his health forced him to give up racing in 1960, Carroll turned his attention to design. The result is what is considered to be perhaps the greatest sports car and one of the fastest road cars ever constructed: the Shelby Cobra. Even today, Ford's premier Mustang carries the Shelby name and iconic snake logo.
