Vehicle Description

Original Body from GT40P1001 Raced in Le Mans 1966, FIA Passport

We own this GT40 and it is available for viewing by appointment in Jacksonville, Florida.

The culmination of a 9+ year project to build a GT40 from authenticated original parts, as if it had been built in period.

Built by world-renowned GT40 expert restorer David Brown in New Zealand over the course of 9+ years.

Recognized in a 3 page letter to the owner by the authority on GT40's Ronnie Spain, Mr. Spain authenticates the car in detail and says it will be added to the next printing of his book on every GT40 made.

The build began with authenticated original GT40 chassis parts, the rest of the chassis being built from Ford/Lola blueprints. The body, drivetrain, interior, suspension and other major components are authenticated originals from period GT40's. Some new-old stock and a few reproduction components were used to complete the build.
