This 1965 Ford GT40 Mk1 replica is one of the most outrageous cars you can experience. The looks are breathtaking, the sound is tremendous, and the ride is extreme. There isn't much comparison out there.
This 2-owner car was built by CAV in 2000 and has been driven about 7,500 miles since. It spent the last 12 years in California where it received an SB100 smog exemption. It was repainted in 2015 and looks fantastic! Several other parts were recently replaced or freshened, including the Lexan engine cover. Also note the 15" Halibrand style knock-off wheels all around, complete with safety wire.
The car is powered by a Ford 5.0L motor. Highlights include a full roller valvetrain, aluminum heads, and a new FAST electronic fuel injection setup. The FAST system is very nice, providing real time data and allowing simple tuning. And the eight velocity stacks, throttle linkage, and blue anodized fuel rails sitting under the engine cover is a beautiful sight indeed. There is also a bundle-of-snakes exhaust that sounds like pure evil.
The transaxle is a Getrag 5-speed unit. Brakes are discs all around with a power booster, while the manual steering rack is nice and tight. The suspension uses adjustable coilover shocks front and rear so you can easily adjust ride height to your preference. Cooling uses a very effective C&R aluminum radiator with dual electric fans controlled by the FAST module.
The interior is classic GT40, starting with the leather seats with aluminum rings. The dashboard has all the expected gauges. You also have access to the FAST display / touch screen which offers many additional items; fuel rail pressure, intake air temperature, air/fuel ratio, and more. The car is also equipped with a heater / air conditioner and backup camera. Note there is a single arm windshield wiper as well (removed for the pictures).
This is not a car to be taken lightly. It demands your full attention while driving, as the slightest slip of your right foot could lead to trouble. So if you're after a relaxing drive in the country then keep looking. But if you really want to stir your senses, you've found your car.
