I would give my left (something) to work on a restoration of this caliber. What an amazing car and history.
I've seen at least 2 of the original GT40's at historical races here in Portland. It still amazes me that those guys would take them out and thrash them like they did in those races and go wheel to wheel in a car so rare and valuable. One of the Mark II cars racing in Portland one year broke a transmission case and had to retire but the driver/owner didn't seem too shook up about it and talked to us about sourcing the parts and what it took to keep the old girl on the road. From the transaxles, axle stubs, and other parts, they can all be sourced with enough time and money but you really have to love the cars to go to that much effort to keep them alive. My hat is off to these guys.


Built an original style CSX 427SC frame/body car with Carbon fiber body, 393W stroker, T5 (for now), T-bird IRS w/3.27 gears, dual roll bars, and lots of decisions yet to make.
