Overview

Has any American car captured the balance between performance and style more perfectly than Ford's Mustang? Instantly recognizable and universally respected, the Mustang sets the standard for American automotive performance and innovation.

Marking the 40th anniversary of America's favorite pony car, Mustang: Forty Years 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.

Covering every car, including the stock Ford models, Shelby GTs, Cobras, Bosses, Mach 1s, and many more, with extensively researched text and brilliant color photography, David Newhardt and Randy Leffingwell present the most comprehensive Mustang book available.

Filled with company history, statistics, engine specifications, design changes, and personal stories from the board room to the race track, Mustang: Forty Years is a book for Mustang fans of all ages to enjoy for the next forty years and beyond!

Award-winning writer and photographer, author Randy Leffingwell combines his fascination for all things mechanical with his considerable writing talent and a photographic eye honed by his years as a staff photographer for the Los Angeles Times to create fascinating and beautifully illustrated books about cars, motorcycles, and tractors.

David Newhardt has earned a reputation as one of today's leading muscle car authors and photographers. He has published several books about the amazing performance machines Detroit cranked out during the golden age of muscle cars.

    Mustang History

    This is a great book for any Mustang lover. The design and photography are simply first-rate and beautiful. It covers the history from pre-birth (concepts, cobras, etc.) through today. It breaks down each model into chapters, and something I really liked was that the Shelby cars for each era were assigned their own chapters. This is not a book on Mustang's racing / motorsport history. Another thing that I felt was missing from a book of this calibre was a Technical Spec Chart for each model year, highlighting such things as dimensions, weight, horespower, engine options, etc.
