MAG 000019 US Sports Car, 1966 Le Man winning Ford GT40, 1:12 Scale. FREE POSTAGE
Magnifier US Sports Car, 1966 Le Man winning Ford GT40, 1:12 Scale.
Ford launched its own effort to create a GT prototype in 1963. At the time, there was a great rivalry between Ford and Ferrari after an unsuccessful takeover bid by Ford. After this snub, Ford were determined to show the Italians up and so they acquired Lola and had Eric Broadly design a Le Mans winning car.
The GT40, revealed at the 1964 New York Auto Show, had a semi-monocoque configuration, and its height was a mere 40 inches. The GT40 began to participate in racing in 1964. This model represents a 1966 GT40 MK II, mounting a 7 lit. V8 engine of 485 HP. This vehicle garnered a 1-2-3 finish in the Daytona 24-hour race, and in the same year beat the Ferraris hands down for another 1-2-3 finish for its first Le Mans win.
