Book Overview

Written with Carroll Shelby's full collaboration and with a foreword by Edsel B. Ford I, the great-grandson of Henry Ford, this is the definitive record of America's preeminent twentieth century sports car builder and racer--now in paperback.

It was motoring author Rinsey Mills' passion for AC cars and motorsports history that led to his first meeting with Carroll Shelby. His suggestion that they should collaborate in order to create an accurate record of Shelby's life and achievements at first was rebuffed but later taken up with enthusiasm. This authorized biography is the result.

Carroll Shelby: The Authorized Biography was a long time in the making, as Mills left no stone unturned in his quest to produce the complete study of Shelby's remarkable life. He carried out extensive research and conducted numerous interviews, fully capturing the narrative of Carroll Shelby within and outside of the automotive racing world, including his:

  • Childhood in Texas
  • Wartime service with the Army Air Force
  • Postwar entrepreneurship
  • Earliest race wins in 1952
  • Legendary 1959 victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans
  • Monumental release of the first Cobra and the formation of Shelby American in 1962
  • Historical partnership with Ford that would last for decades
  • Personal interests and Read More chevron_right
