Description:

1965 Other Makes

Easily one of the nicest GT40 builds on the road, no expense was spared in building this car to be extremely powerful and reliable. AFTER the chassis was purchased (new Superformance chassis are $125k+), the owner pumped another $74k documented costs into building out a killer engine and making the car a track-day stunner. It's Gulf Blue with double white stripes with a black interior. Olthoff Racing built the car, and Keith Craft Racing built the engine. We won't even try to describe this one-owner masterpiece further. Instead, we're just going to list some of the items that went into it and publish the pictures. It speaks for itself.
