Ford: The Dust and the Glory - A Racing History By Leo Levine.

Unfortunately, another of those books that has attracted the attention of the book collector (the other is "The Ford That Beat Ferrari"). As a result, expect to pay a lot of money if you don't already have it.

Ford GT40 Sports Cars - Supercars in Profile by Steve Archibald.

Another softback volume which is very scarce.
