Mustang Racing Legends

July 13, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| Free with regular museum admission

CANTWELL-65On the opening weekend of the Mustang show, we’ll also have a special “Mustang Racing Legends” day. Beginning at Noon on Sunday, July 13th, we will have a discussion of the development of the Mustang as a racer with Chuck Cantwell, the “Father of the GT350.”
Chuck came to Shelby American expressly to make the Mustang into a high-performance car on a level with the Cobra. He’ll be joined by Greg Kolasa, author of The Definitive Shelby Mustang Guide: 1965-1970.
We’ll also have several very special racing Mustangs on display just for this day, including the first GT350 R Model race car (5R002), Mark Donohue’s GT350R in which he won the SCCA B Production Championship, the Shelby team Trans-Am Mustang, the George Follmer Trans-Am Mustang and a 429 Boss Mustang Dragster.
