SHELBY AMERICAN 60 YEARS OF HIGH PERFORMANCE: The Stories Behind the Cobra, Daytona, Mustang GT350 and GT500, Ford GT40 and More • By Colin Comer and Rick Kopec  PREVIEW HERE:

[cid:image004.jpg@01D8F379.3993F5A0]Celebrate six decades of Carroll Shelby's brand of automotive excitement with Shelby American 60 Years of High Performance. Cobra, GT40, Daytona Coupe, King Cobra, Mustang GT350, and more are covered in this officially licensed, 60th anniversary overview.

Publishing January 17, 2023, by Motorbooks, Shelby American 60 Years of High Performance covers all of these early triumphs, following the proceedings from a small shop in Venice, California, to sprawling digs at LAX all the while developing new road cars, running a top race team, and giving privateer racers the cars they needed to win. Get to know Shelby, as well as the innovators who surrounded him, including designer Peter Brock, genius engineer Phil Remington, "Mr. GT350" Chuck Cantwell, and a roster of top drivers that included Ken Miles, Bob Bondurant, Dan Gurney, Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme, A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, and more.

Authors Colin Comer and Rick Kopec, leading Shelby historians, follow the Shelby story through Carroll's post-Ford relationship with Dodge, including his roles in the giant-killing, pocket-rocket Shelby Charger, GLH ("Goes Like Hell"), and GLH-S cars along with a slew of other Shelby-ized machines including his role in the birth and development of the menacing Dodge Viper.

The story of the late Carroll Shelby and the company he founded is a classic tale of ingenuity, grit, and perseverance. Illustrated throughout with rare period imagery and modern color photography, Shelby American 60 Years of High Performance is the ultimate tribute to Shelby American and the team that made it all happen.
