Synopsis: All car enthusiasts know about Shelby Mustangs, but what really separates them from their production-line relatives? What really makes a Shelby a Shelby? This new book from Shelby American Auto Club (SAAC) historian and registrar Greg Kolasa details the specifics on the performance and appearance alterations with both descriptive text and superb photographs.
This book gives a detailed look at both the performance and styling characteristics of each year of the 1965-1970 Shelby Mustangs in text, photographs, and charts/graphs and clears up many myths and misconceptions surrounding these legendary pony cars. In addition to his firsthand knowledge, Kolasa relies heavily on factory documentation and interviews with Shelby American designers, engineers, stylists, fabricators, and race drivers to get the true, as-it-happened story of these phenomenal pony cars. Additionally, the cars included in the book were chosen specifically for their historical and technical "correctness."
The Definitive Shelby Mustang Guide: 1965-1970 will serve as the illustrated Shelby Mustang sourcebook for years to come. For Mustang and Shelby enthusiasts especially, but even for general automotive historians, no automotive library would be complete without it.
From the Back Cover: The Mustangs modified by Carroll Shelby were unlike anything else available when they launched in 1965. The subsequent years brought evolutionary change and myriad legends until their eventual demise in 1970. How these cars were conceptualized, designed, assembled, and ultimately delivered to the public has been a topic of debate among casual fans and diehard collectors alike. Author Greg Kolasa digs through the many layers of legend to find the answers, and the results of his more than two decades of work reside on these pages.
Each year of Shelby Mustang production is isolated and examined in-depth, with explicit descriptions of how these great cars came to be. The various options, modifications, and upgrades are shared in full, with intriguing behind-the-scenes facts and documented issues on full display. The problems Shelby faced (and conquered) makes the final products all the more interesting and atypical of other limited-production automobiles. From the raucous 1965 models to the luxurious 1969/1970s, the story of Shelby's Mustangs is one of passion and business where a genuine performance enthusiast does his very best to create a true world-class, high-performance American car within the boundaries of corporate limits. He succeeded, and although it wasn’t easy or long-lasting, it’s a fascinating story.
