PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW
by MICHAEL IRVINE
SHELBY MUSTANG CAR ART
BY ARTIST MICHAEL IRVINE
For 1965 Ford Motor Company teamed up with Carroll Shelby to create one of the most recognized Mustangs ever produced — the Shelby G.T. 350. Shelby increased the Mustang's already potent 271hp 289ci engine, with an assortment of bolt-on goodies, bringing total horsepower to 306. The addition of a fiberglass hood, side-exiting exhaust, suspension upgrades and the removal of all non-essentials, like the backseat, transformed the sporty little Mustang into a "street legal" race car.
All '65 Shelby Mustangs were painted a Wimbledon White with twin Guardsman Blue racing stripes and matching lower side stripes. This paint scheme, which was reminiscent of the world-class Ford race cars of the day, let the public know that this was no ordinary Mustang.
In "Pure As The Driven Snow" Michael takes us outside to a peaceful setting on a crisp, clear, winter's day. On this morning we see Shelby's creations basking in the glow of the sun while long cast shadows help camouflage them from passers by.
