About the Author:

Chase Morsey Jr., born in St. Louis in 1919, became part of an elite Army Air Force team dedicated to using business management principles to manage the World War II air campaign over Germany and Japan. He left the military to help save struggling Ford Motor Company, where his passion led him to save the V-8 engine and preserve Ford's role in automotive history

Morsey played a crucial role in the creation of some of Ford's most iconic vehicles, including the Ford Thunderbird and Mustang. He got Ford into NASCAR and convinced famous golfers to market Lincolns.

Morsey went on to become the chief financial officer of RCA after opening up his own Ford dealership in Arizona. He eventually moved to southern California, where he became former president Ronald Reagan's golfing buddy at the Los Angeles Country Club. He continues to reside in Los Angeles with his wife Beverly.
