Shelby Mustang details the entire story of these fantastic cars, from the early prototypes built in Shelby's Los Angeles shop to today's Ford-engineered high-tech performers. Written by one of the world's foremost authorities on Shelby automobiles, critically acclaimed author Colin Comer, and with a foreword by Lee Iacocca, the American automobile executive credited with the successful development of the Mustang, this is the definitive account of the Shelby. When Ford wanted to toughen up its super-successful new Mustang, they approached Carroll Shelby to give it the performance image it so sorely lacked. Beginning with a 1965 "K-Code" 289-cubic-inch-powered Mustang fastback, Shelby applied the same formula that had made his Cobra sports cars such devastating performers both on and off the track: more horsepower, less weight, balanced handling. The GT350 quickly established itself as a bonafide force in SCCA B-Production racing, twisting back roads, and boulevards alike—setting the course for future Shelby Mustangs, like the big-block GT500. Though those original Shelby Mustangs were done by 1970, Ford dusted off its Shelby relationship in 2006 and has been producing high-performance Ford Mustang Shelbys ever since. This is a must-have read for any fan of American performance cars, whether you're a muscle-era original or a 21st-century stormer.

This is a complete retrospective, from the postwar fixation on style and speed that spawned the Ford Mustang, to the completely new model waiting just around the corner.

Filled with company history, statistics, engine specifications, design changes, and personal stories from the board room to the racetrack, this is a book for Mustang fans of all ages to enjoy for the next forty years and beyond!
When Ford wanted to add some spice to its new Mustang pony car in the mid-1960s, it turned to the talented, colorful, and opinionated Texan Carroll Shelby, who was then building the high-performance, Fordpowered Cobra racing sports car. The result: the Shelby Mustang GT350, perhaps the definitive performance Mustang of the muscle car era. Ford released its newest Mustang in 2005, the first truly all-new Mustang since 1979, returning the model to the spotlight. Shelby himself was directly involved in defining what is the most powerful factory-produced Mustang ever. This up-to-the-minute history from award winning authors Randy Leffingwell and David Newhardt traces the Shelby Mustang story from the early Shelby American cars built in a converted airplane hangar in Southern California to the 2010 version of the new Shelby Mustang.
Almost from conception and certainly from its first appearance in 1964 (under the marketing direction of none other than Lee Iacocca), the Ford Mustang achieved iconic status in American car culture—with 100,000 sold in the first 90 days. Over the next 40 years, America’s love affair with the Mustang flourished—for reasons amply documented in this celebration of the style and performance that have made the Mustang a classic—again and again. Packing 250 color photos of more than 80 vehicles into a compact volume, with detailed performance statistics and historical accounts of each Mustang, from the early fastbacks and coupes to the 2007 Shelby GT500, this is the ultimate field guide to the incomparable people’s sports car.
The American muscle car began, not in the factories of the Big Three automakers, but in the garages and dealerships of a Detroit subculture bent on making the hottest, highest-performance cars on the street. American Muscle Supercars tells the story of these tuner/builders and the supercars they unleashed on the American scene. It all begins with Michigan’s Royal Pontiac dealership, and the souped-up Royal Pontiac Bobcats they built and sold to drag racers, starting a thrill that’s never faded. From those Royal Pontiac tuner cars to the new Boss 302 Mustang built by Steve Saleen, this gorgeously illustrated book chronicles the outsize contribution of the tuner/builder to American automotive history. Author-photographer David Newhardt profiles the tuner/builders who have dominated American performance--names like Mr. Norm’s Grand Spaulding Dodge, Nickey Chevrolet, Don Yenko, Carroll Shelby, George Hurst, and Baldwin-Motion. And he focuses on the tuners who continue to lead the way, builders such as Steve Saleen, Calloway, and SLP, whose vehicles are the fastest ever built. From the oldest of these muscle tuners, commanding top dollar at today’s classic-car auctions, to the latest attempts by Ford and Chrysler to get into the game with their SVT and SRT divisions, this book gives readers a full and fascinating look at American high-performance in its purest form.
