The Last GT40 Ford Ever Produced Is Now up For Auction
Vintage racing enthusiasts will be delighted to learn that the last GT40 Ford has ever produced is now up for auction over at Gooding & Company.
Just one of 105 units ever manufactured, the GT40 in question — chassis P/1085 — was constructed back in 1969 and originally sold as a rolling chassis to Sir Malcolm Gutherie. It remained in storage in pristine condition until the late 2000s when the U.K.-based Racing Fabrications commissioned the car to its true JWA specifications, later used in various historic racing events.
Presented in 1968 “Gulf Spec,” the car’s chassis has been kept unmodified and in its original condition.
Powered by a roaring Gurney Weslake engine, the GT40 boasts original bodywork and sits on 10-inch and 14-inch wheels complete with vented disc brakes and four-pot calipers, just like the cars that won Le Mans in 1968 and 1969. As a bonus, the car is also eligible for a whole series of prestigious events on the historic racing calendar.
