cartech­books.com Make room on your shelf for one more Mus­tang his­tory book, as this one is told from a unique per­spec­tive: the view­point of Ford de­signer Gale Hal­der­man. His July 1962 sketch be­came the ba­sis for the first Mus­tang. The book is packed with a lot of in­sider info, plus sketches (from Hal­der­man and oth­ers) and de­sign stu­dio pho­tos il­lus­trat­ing the clay mod­els and mock­ups that formed the car’s evo­lu­tion. Hal­der­man’s work didn’t stop with the first Mus­tang, ei­ther; he also ren­dered the shape that would be­come the sec­ond-gen Mus­tang fast­back.
