The Complete Book of Classic Ford and Mercury Muscle Cars
Complete Book Series
Take a stunningly illustrated and highly detailed tour through all of Ford Motor Company’s high-performance muscle cars from 1961 to 1970.
Though the Mustang remains Ford’s most famous muscle car, the company had been building muscle cars since it introduced the sleek Fairlane and Galaxie models with optional 390 cubic-inch big-block V-8 engines in 1961.
These cars were part of Ford’s Total Performance program, which tested cars in the crucible of racing at drag strips, oval circuits, European rally events, and road courses, resulting in legendary muscle cars like the Shelby Mustang, Boss 302 and 429 Mustangs, Mercury Cougar, Cyclone GT, and Spoiler.
The Complete Book of Classic Ford and Mercury Muscle Cars profiles every muscle car Ford produced during this exciting time in American automotive history. This comprehensive volume includes:
- Detailed profiles of every Ford muscle car produced from 1961 to 1970, including specs for each
- Expert commentary by celebrated Mustang author Donald Farr
- Stunning modern and archival photography showcasing the cars and their engines
- Period advertisements that give a peek into the cultural era they were created in
This is the bible of muscle every disciple of Ford performance needs.
