Books - Shelby American Up Close and Behind the Scenes, The Venice Years 1962-65 (Author: Friedman)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Shelby American Up Close and Behind the Scenes Weight 2.1kg by Dave Friedman Dave Friedman was official photographer to the Shelby team in the early years and that access brings us a fantastic selection of images taken from the foundation of Shelby American in 1962 through to 1965 when they moved on from their original Venice, California workshops on to larger premises. The text is relatively sparse but what there is is often in the form of anecdotes from those involved with the race team and the development of the Cobra and GT40 in those early days which increases the intimacy of the whole book. It is the photos that really do the talking though and these range from publicity shots, to behind the scenes in the workshop and at the race track. Most of the images (and there are plenty of them!) are in atmospheric black and white, although there is also a smattering of colour.
Over the years we have created a library here at GPM and many collectors regularly ask us which books we use most and which are the most reliable source of information. We offer quality titles selected for their reference material content.
