When Carroll Shelby was unwillingly tasked with turning a “Secretary’s Car” into one of the most prolific muscle cars of all time, he turned to one man – Chuck Cantwell.
Join us as we welcome Chuck back to The Simeone on November 18th at 12:00 for a one time only special appearance. This is your opportunity to learn first-hand the real history of the Shelby Mustang from the man behind the machine. Take part in a wide ranging discussion on the development of the car built to beat Chevy’s Corvette.
Along for the ride will be co-author Greg Kolasa. Greg is considered to be one of the foremost experts on Shelby and the Registrar of ‘60s Ford GT40 and the ’60s Hertz Shelby Mustangs.
“Shelby Mustang GT350: My Years Designing, Testing and Racing Carroll’s Legendary Mustangs” examines the history making moments that led to the development and execution of one the most iconic sports cars of all time.
Tickets are free with regular admission. The program begins sharply at noon and will feature both a discussion and book signing. Books will be available on site for purchase and signing.
