1966 Ford Superformance GT 40 – MK 1

The legendary Ford GT40 had been winning the ’24 Hours of Le Mans’ four consecutive times, from 1966 to 1969. The MK IV model, back in 1967 became the first and only car built and designed entirely in the US to win this race. This record remains to this day. The name ‘GT‘ stands for ‘Grand Touring’, and the number ’40’ comes from the height of the vehicle, 40 inches (1.02 meters), this height was required by the rules of the Le Mans race.

It is powered by 347 cubic inch Dart Sportsman V8 engine. Manual rack and pinion steering and Wilwood Superlite disc brakes.
