Notes: This book comes autographed by Peter Brock, designer of the Daytona Coupe and will start shipping May 18th, 2020.

From Peter Brock, designer of the Daytona Cobra Coupe:
"Everyone who has previously written about the Daytona Cobra coupes has made egregious mistakes but this book by Rinsey Mills is different. His first-hand accounts, direct from drivers and team members through the 1964 and '65 racing seasons, cannot be found anywhere else in as much detail and they bring into focus so many of the guys on the crew who have never had the recognition they deserved. For me personally, what I most enjoyed when reading Rinsey's manuscript is that he has filled in for me many missing details of races and memorable events that I was unable to attend in Europe.

Besides covering the design, development, and racing activities of all six Daytona Cobra coupes, this book focuses on Coupe CSX2300 in particular. CSX2300 was Allen Grant's 'personal' choice of all the Daytonas for the '65 season and as such it had some special details that made it one of the best.

There have been many words written about the Shelby era but relatively few that focus on this most intense early period with the Daytona Cobra Coupes. Rinsey has presented the back story of how it all came about with great accuracy and authority. He explains how a single design change from Shelby's first Cobra roadster, with welcome financial support from Goodyear, resulted in our radically shaped coupes that turned the motorsports establishment on its ear and brought home the International GT Championship to the United States in 1965.

This book is wonderful stuff and I have learned so much that I never knew. For that reason I wholly recommend this book, to the point that we’ve created a special plated version, numbered 001 thru 100 which I have autographed."
Peter Brock

Special leather bound publisher’s edition: Many of you are aware of how valuable Brock’s original Daytona Cobra Coupe book has become. Unsigned copies regularly sell for $1000+ and signed copies over $4000. Once Brock saw the quality of this new book (he already knew the content was terrific as he reviewed a draft of the manuscript and gave feedback), he spoke extensively with the publisher about how feasible it would be to offer a high-end version of this book. Consequently, coming later this year will be 100 special, leather bound edition books signed by both Peter Brock and author Rinsey Mills. This book will only be available through Porter Press. If you would like to reserve one of these books, please contact Louise Gibbs at louise@porterpress.co.uk Pricing will be scaled. The first 30 books will be £300. Books 31-50 will be £400. Books 51-70 £500. Books 71-90 £750 and 91-100 £1,000.
