The Mustang I Designer - Phil Clark

There was an
eighteen month delay due to this wreck on April 18,2003. Good Friday.
This was an F-350. Book Two, almost in it’s entirety, was in this accident, along with the author and her photographer. The truck rolled several times and came to rest around a telephone pole, (as seen in the passenger side of the truck). Not only was the truck completely destroyed, the only copy of the book was covered in glass, diesel fuel, grass and spread over about a quarter of a mile.
As if that weren’t enough to delay the second book, Holly Clark also suffered brain damage from the accident thus further delaying the whole Man Behind the Pony Series. They say a picture is worth a thousand words—hopefully this one will be worth an entire book. Watch closely for The Man Behind the Pony Series, Book Two.

Phil Clark was the Father of Holly Clark, his only daughter. Holly devoted her life to trying to get to know the father she lost as a young child. In the process of discovering her father, she also discovered something else, his connection to the Mustang. In just a few more days, no one might have ever known what was in the attic, but serendipity took over and the key to her father’s works, life and his death were discovered. It was December 1985.
Phil Clark’s Belongings: — .. Power in this "Mustang"
sort of design project... — My only hope is Henry Ford
II who will compare them next week.—I didn’t realize those
photos would be so expensive! I wish now I hadn’t sent those
Mustang slides.-I have made progress on my portfolio this week.
Five sketches and some roughs for more. (While in England)—I
am in the hot spot constantly. I have 5 stylists under
me, including Fritz Mayhew and 14 modelers. —Roy(Haynes)
has been on Holiday, so I’ve had Corsair and MkIV with Gil Spear.
