Shelby Biography by Rinsey Mills
Model # 572012
Finally! The REAL Shelby biography with an exclusive offer from BRE; Included with each book, a 6"x9.25" archive photo reprint of the Carroll Shelby Driving School with Shelby and Peter Brock.

Rinsey Mills, noted UK author and automotive historian has left no stone unturned in the quest to produce the complete study of a remarkable life. With Carrolls collaboration, Rinsey has carried out extensive research and conducted numerous interviews with Carroll, family, friends and those who have worked with him.

Peter Brock’s thoughts on, and recommendation for, the book: “I, as many, have been talking to Rinsey for a few years now as he’s been researching and writing this book. This biography is not the usual fluff. Here at last is the real, raw, high octane truth, right from Shelby’s first memory as a child through to the present day. Mills has it all in fascinating detail that can be as outrageous as it is funny. It’s all there including the whole deeply researched early automotive history in Texas with Jim Hall, Shelby’s racing days in Europe and, of course, the legendary Cobra and Ford eras, as well as the years with Toyota and Chrysler and including Carroll’s “lost” years in Africa. It’s all etched deeply in the pages of this fantastic 400+ page volume that took Mills several years to research and write.

In his almost nine decades Shelby managed to surround himself with incredible talent and wily scoundrels who created as many byzantine problems as stellar triumphs that made Shelby one of the most colorful and controversial characters of our time. I personally recommend this fine book as one of the most interesting and intriguing biographies you’ll ever have a chance to read. Having spent several years of my life with Shelby I thought I knew more than most…I wasn’t even close. Rinsey has it all.”
