    Does the mutation here only apply to the noun car and not to the accompanying adjective glas ?


    Yes. car 'catches' that particular mutation. glas mutates or not depending on the gender of the noun it is describing:

    • Mae gen i gadair (I have a chair)
    • cadair las (a blue chair - glas -> las because cadair is feminine)

    • Mae gen i gadair las - two mutations, but for two separate reasons.
