In 1968, Shinoda (designer of the
Mako Shark Corvette concept car) followed then-Chevy General Manager
Bunkie Knudsen to Ford. He took over design leadership of the 1969
Mustang in time to sponsor and create the Boss 302 and 429 Mustangs,
perhaps two of the most famous Mustang models ever produced. He led
the design team for the classic 1970-73 Mustangs.
