The Ford GT40 is synonymous with Le Mans but was first seen at the Nurburgring in May 1964. Two unsuccessful years followed until in 1966 the GT40 took 1st, 2nd and 3rd places at Le Mans in its Mk. II form. In 1967 a new Mk. III road version was built which differed from the previous road and race cars. The two square headlights were replaced with four circular units. The exhaust and rear bodywork were redesigned to enable space for a boot. Inside the most significant change was that the gearchange was mounted centrally allowing either lefthand or righthand cars to be built. To make the car more road user friendly, the engine was de-tuned and the suspension made slightly softer. Mk. III production ceased in 1969 with only seven examples having been built.This stunning car is a near perfect evocation of one of the seven original GT40 Mk. III; the last one which came to market sold for several million dollars. Registered correctly on Classic D registration plates and registered as a Ford GT40 (KVA) on the V5C registration certificate, this car started life as one of the first KVA chassis that was produced; KVA bodies were so good they even made them for real GT40's. The chassis was then modified and strengthened to upgrade it to its current specification. Power comes from a Ford 302ci V8 supplied in 330bhp specification from Real Steel with less than 2,000 miles with a performance inlet and carburettor, aluminium performance heads, Ford racing rocker covers and an air filter rounded off by a 'ceramic coated' bundle of snakes exhaust system. The car sits on correct knock on/off wheels.The gearbox is a five speed UN1 built with GTO engineering internals, an uprated shaft and a Quaife limited slip differential. The engine also boasts an electric water pump and a large core aluminium bespoke radiator with twin fan system and silicone hoses. The interior is in fabulous condition and features blue trimmed leather seats with matching leather dashboard. Access to the cabin is through the iconic GT40 doors with their detachable roof panels for open-top driving. The classic instruments and correct central gear change complement the perfectly replicated chrome opening windows and period mirrors, finished in stunning paintwork by Smart Automotive. This is a rare and wonderful classic Mk. III GT40 evocation which, in our view, is superb in every way. We are informed the cost to recreate this car to this standard today would cost in excess of £200,000 and it came as no surprise to hear that this very example wowed the crowds at last year's Goodwood Revival.The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to COVID-19 guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
