For Sale: 1965 Ford GT40 in Rockville, Maryland

$75,000 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

For sale is a very nice 1965 KVA Ford GT40 - The KVA was designed by Kevin Vincent Atwell (Senior Production engineer with Ford Motor Co.) He was tasked by Ford to build the molds and replacement parts for the original GT40 race cars. He was later given permission by Ford Motor Co. to use the molds and went on to produce his own GT40 replicas (KVA's). Due to his access to these molds, the KVA is one of the most accurate replicas of the legendary Ford GT40.

The car is about 97% complete and needs minor items for completion such as final interior carpeting, some detailing, etc. For all of you guys and girls out there who may be considering purchasing this car, remember this a true race car replica and it behaves like one!
