1968 Ford GT40

This car is about getting a moment to have a raw and real experience. This Ford GT40 Mk2 might be titled for 2008, but it feels like the summer of 1966 behind the wheel. This is not a kit car, it is a fully built and race-ready experience.Built to resemble Bruce McLaren's Le Mans winner, the GT40 is a specialist second generation chassis by Bailey Cars in South Africa. This is a company that doesn't assemble kits, but instead builds race-ready replicas from scratch. So this GT40 has been specially constructed to attack the track with as much ferociousness as McLaren's car. But just because it's built to be functional doesn't mean they skipped out on all the right design touches that make you love this icon. The shark-like nose with cooling vents diving deep into the hood; the doors that cut into the roof; the rear window where you can clearly see the velocity stacks; the ducktail spoiler the extends the flat-panel rear; and two tailpipes bold sitting in the exact middle of it all... This is everything you love about a GT40. The car has been raced a little in its lifetime, but the black paint still shows you the kind of slippery gloss that reminds you how aerodynamic the design truly is. Finish it off with a set of distinctive Halibrand wheels (2 sets actually come with the sale.)You're going to get in on the right side because that's how they did it in '64. This is everything you need in a genuine vintage racer full roll cage, quick release steering wheel, fire extinguisher, and kill switch. The leather/suede driver's seat has a Safecraft harness. The full dash is laid out with clearly labeled toggle switches and easy-to-read Smiths gauges with the all-important tack in front of the driver. It's laid out properly so everything is easy even running above 100 mph. You even get a Rumblestrip GPS lap timer.One look behind the seat, and you know you're getting proper power. That's a 351 cubic-inch Ford Racing motor fed by a quad set of twin dual throat Weber downdraft carbs. The motor exhales out of the proper "bundle of snakes" headers that directs their rumble right out of the rear center. You have complete control over this powerhouse and its soundtrack thanks to the Quaife QZF five-speed manual. Backed by a 2nd generation full race suspension that honed through track time and a four-wheel disc brake package, this GT40 is immediately ready for weekend fun. But honestly, when you buy a track car like this, you want to make sure it has been properly maintained. That's why the consignor has made sure it's in top condition. This includes rebuilt Penske front shocks, new Penske rear shocks, new upper & lower control arms, new Holly Blue fuel pump, and even the Weber carbs are new. There's plenty more to go into on all the new components, racer-ready accessories, and a long list of maintenance, so call us for all the details.Plenty of people can buy a replica that looks good in the parking lot. But it takes a much higher level of craftsmanship to have a car this nice that's also ready to go play with the originals on the racetrack. You might never find one as capable as an original GT40 than the car you see here, which make it a true bargain. Call today!!!
