In my opinion, the best Mustang book I've seen {and I must have 40-50 of them} is 'Mustang Chronicle' by Jerry Heasley. I first saw this book when a friend bought a new Mustang in '99, and Ford sent out welcome packages containing a key fob, I think a leather bound owner's manual, and this book. My friend at first gave it to me, {he's not a car guy at all} but I foolishly kept it on my desk at work and one day he came in and said if I was done with it he'd take it back.

By a strange coincidence, a few years later my BIL, who's not a car guy either, picked up a copy on a clearance table in a bookstore and gave it to me as a birthday gift.

This is a really good book, with lots of color pictures of many different models. The trouble is, this book is out of print and you'll never find it in a book store these days. Hopefully it will go into another printing.

Amazon has a few used copies, and they are dirt cheap. I'd highly recommend getting a copy, especially at these prices. As I said in another post, I just bought a used book from Amazon's used book system and I am very satified.

Here's a direct link to the book:

My 2 favorite Mustang books are:

'Mustang', by Gary Witzenberg. Absolutely the best behind the snes info and tons of pre-production photos.


And the first edition of 'Mustang' by the 'auto editors of consumer's guide'.
Lots of great info...lots of great color pix.

That's the one with the silver cover, right? I saw that this weekend and I was impressed.
