Ford GT40

This is Ford GT40 chassis 1075 that won the Le Mans race in 1968 with Pedro Rodrigues and Lucien Bianchi driving and again in 1969 with Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver. Ford raced the GT40 to wins in 1966 and 1967, and then sold the racing operation to John Wyer who further developed this Mk I small block GT40 to create one of the most famous race cars of all time seen here in original Gulf racing colors.
