The Ford GT40 was the answer from Henry Ford to the motorsport domination of Ferrari. Developed from the Lola Mk6 and using the 289 ci Ford V8 engine, the car was ready for its first race in May 1964. These early attempts were not very succesful due to reliability problems, and Carroll Shelby was hired to reorganise the racing department. In February 1965, the first win was a fact and from that moment the GT40 became the racecar to beat in any important championship. Ford won the Le Mans 24 hours in 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969 with the GT40, which is quite impressive as a result.

Today, the GT40 is still a forerunner in the historic racing scene, and the car we are now offering for sale is a potential winner in its class (1962-1965). Beautifully constructed with incredible attention to detail, and following the most interesting specification. The car has a steel welded monocoque with steel welded roof. Front, rear and doors in fiberglass, identical to the original GT40 cars which drove on Le Mans 1965. The brakes are period correct Girling items with Pagid blue brakepads. Hubs, pedalbox, steering rack, gearshift and fuel caps are all cast magnesium, again as per 1965 Le Mans specification. The 289 ci. engine was build by Steve Warrior Motorsport. Fitted with Weber 48IDA carburetors, and providing 445 bhp at 6800 rpm (dynoed). Of course, the rubber fuel tanks are FIA approved, and are fitted inside the monocoque in combination with a dual pump system. The rollcage is CNC bended and FIA approved as well. The seats are as per original specification, and the interior has all the original instruments with special red lighting. All buttons and warning lights are also to 1965 original specification. This GT40 has a brand new FIA HTP valid until 2028, and is just fully tested during a Danish historic race. The car came home with an outright win and in the meantime the lap record was beaten as well. A better start then Ford did in the sixties...

As you have probably understood from the specification, this is a turn-key ready racecar in immaculate condition. In the right hands, this GT40 is a potential winner in the Master Series, and it is eligible for many events like Spa 6 hours and Goodwood. So if you are still looking for the right car to participate in this summers historic events, then this gorgeous GT40 is probably the one for you. Competitively priced, incredibly fast and probably one of the best finished GT40's on this planet.

Price on request.
