Shelby Mustang Fifty Years

is a celebration of the

Shelby Mustang and covers every iteration from the raw

1965 GT350s to today’s 1000-horsepower monster Shel-

bys. More importantly, it profiles the men who made it all

happen like “Mr. GT350” Chuck Cantwell, Peter Brock,

and those men that keep the dream alive today at the Ford

Motor Company like Jim Farley. Created in cooperation

with the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust and officially licensed by

Carroll Shelby Licensing, Inc. The book is lavishly illus-

trated with rare, historical photography and modern color

images that chronicle the story of these amazing cars,

from the initial collaboration with Ford to today’s record-

setting high-tech muscle cars. Foreword and tribute to

Carroll Shelby by the”Father of the Mustang,” Lee Iacocca.

Peter Brock says: “

Colin Comer has done it again! What

his last spectacular book, “Shelby Cobra Fifty Years,” was

to the Texan’s snakes, his new “Shelby Mustang Fifty

Years” is to Shelby’s Mustang. It is the perfect addition to

any Shelby or Mustang enthusiast’s library. Somehow

Colin seems to come up with new, unseen historic pho-

tography as well as the latest images of fantastic, perfect

restorations, like those of the first production and racing

versions of the GT350s, 5R002 and 5S003. This book also

provides great insight into the background and develop-

ment of the whole Mustang project at Shelby American

provided by 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 ab-

solute perfection in the form of concours-level photogra-

phy. An exceptional and highly recommended book!”
