Has anybody seen this book and maybe knows what it is and where I can buy it?

Looks a lot like a couple of books that I bought at a swap meet. they were printed in England. If I remember one of them is for Cobra and the other is Ford GT40.

Can you maybe check who published it. Just for my interest.

Is that the book that came with the scale model of the Super Snake ? It doesn't look like it.

Kent,  where did you find that image ? I'm sure you already checked it out for any clues, I wonder is it specific to '67s ?

I put your image and question to a French forum I frequent, somebody there who has a lot of Mustang books, 100 + ! said that he

 didn't know that book.

In hind sight I don't think it's the book that came with that '67 scale model, I think that was more of an assembly manual ?

I'm curious about it as well.

Maybe Roy TA Coupe will come up with something ?

Kent, Vern has one of the books that I was referring to so you might contact him to see if he has one for a 67 and see what's on the back cover. I still haven't run across mine. Have him see if the back cover of the Cobra book is anything like what you posted.

Roy Here's the back cover of the Cobra book in your link to Vern's item, the what I would call a pamphlet, soft cover, has 12

 pages, written by Anthony Pritchard & Keith Davey, pub. 1967. The same item, appears in a hard cover book compilation of a

 number of those profiles, volume 3, pub. 1968, I have both.

I think we would all like to find out more about that green book in the 1st post, that has a '67 on the cover  ???

I got the picture from a 67 shelby that was for sale. And I just was wondering about the book.

I finally found the 3rd booklet that goes with the 2 up above. With about 5000 magazines, books, posters and other things it may take a while to find the book in the first post if I have it.

5,000! Wow! Serious collection. Impressive!

One can never have enough stuff  ;) my other half begs to differ !

those Profile pamphlets are neat, I have quite a few, and I also have a couple of hard cover books in which they were compiled.

Is it the green book with the arrow that we are trying to i.d. ? I am curious what it is.
