Shenk, William


William Shenk, born July 10, 1933, in Alexandria, VA, graduated with honors from Los Angeles' Art Center School in 1962 and joined the Ford Motor Company. Shortly after Lee Iacocca saw Shenk's exterior design for the 1970-1971 Torino, it was approved for production. Shenk designed the 1987 Mustang's facelift and the exterior of the 1987 Cougar XR7. Interested in mass transit, Shenk designed and patented the Ford-built mass transit vehicle used at Fairlane Town Center until 1987. (Adapted from Automotive Design Drawing Collection finding aid.)
