An Individual History and Race Record

In the 1960s the Ford Motor Company decided to enter the arena of sports car racing and challenge the European manufacturers, specifically Ferrari, for supremacy. The result was the GT40, and by the mid-1960s the car was posting victories at the most prestigious sports car endurance racing events around the world. In this comprehensive history of Fords GT40, Ronnie Spain describes the development of the marque and features chassis records and photos of each and every car built.
Comprehensive race records provide a year-by-year account, from the GT40s first ventures in 1964 through 1970.

BK140151 THE FORD THAT BEAT FERRARI
A Racing History Of The GT40

Henry Ford was angry. He had just been spurned by the enigmatic Enzo Ferrari who had finally told him in no uncertain terms, “Non! I won’t sell Ferrari Automobili.” Henry wanted to get even and to hit hard, fast and where it would hurt the most: at Le Mans 24-hours, the most prestigious race in the world. But first he needed a car. The Shelby Cobras had earlier conquered in the GT class, but overall victory was not theirs. Instead Mr. Ford chose a British prototype, the Lola GT, from which he developed the quintessential ‘60s sportscar as his battle weapon: the Ford GT40 (40 for forty inches high!). It was a technical, aesthetic, and racing tour-de-force…placing 1-2-3 at Le Mans in 1966, with further victories in the next three consecutive years.
This new edition is a re-designed and updated history of the classic 1985 edition that commands hundreds of dollars from collectors. On the cover is the most extraordinary GT40 of all: chassis 1075, which won six international endurance races and covered 11,963 racing miles, on its way to victory in the 1969 Sebring 12 Hours, driven by Jackie Ickx and Jackie Oliver. Throughout are photos and stories that make this book a must for any serious racing enthusiast or Ford aficionado

Remembering the Shelby Years
1962-1969

Perhaps no other automobile has captured the imagination of motoring enthusiasts, racers and the general public as has the Shelby American Cobra. Today, forty-some years later, the powerful Cobra continues to be the most widely-recognized and replicated automobile of all time. While it has been the subject of many books, the whole truth has never been told, according to Carroll Shelby, until now

BK145908 Ford GT40 & GT
Ultimate Portfolio 1964-2005
Mk.I, Mk.II, Mk.III, Mk.IV, GT

Henry Ford, having been rejected by Ferrari, vowed to beat him on the race tracks of the world. It was the spark that ignited what was probably the most exciting era in Fords history which began in 1964. When released in Dearborn the GT40 was probably the prettiest racing car ever designed up to that time. It looked sensational and was undoubtedly very fast, but its aerodynamic performance left much to be desired, as did its reliability. It failed to finish in such events as the Nürburgring 1000 kms, Le Mans 24-hour and the Nassau Tourist Trophy, but Ford regarded these outings as part of the learning curve. In 1966 came the much modified Mark 2 version and with this car success started to come Fords way. Henry Fords dream was realized when the three surviving GT40s finished 1-2-3 at Le Mans. Although the GT40 continued to be raced after the 1967 season, it was with private teams rather than from Ford itself, where it became a legend in its own lifetime.

The Legend Comes to Life

One of the most exciting new cars of 2004 is profiled in this beautiful book. The Ford GT is the modern version of the incredible GT40, a car created by Ford in the 1960s to beat the Ferraris at Le Mans-which they did! The success of the original GT40, coupled with its great looks, made it one of the most popular cars in automotive racing history. Ford has revived the spirit of the original race car with perhaps its most exciting new car in 30 years-the Ford GT. The new car has lines taken straight off the original GT40 and power supplied by a 500-hp V-8. Three Ford GTs will be built in 2003 to commemorate the 1-2-3 victory at Le Mans in 1966, and the car will see limited regular production beginning in June 2004.
This book includes an in-depth analysis of how the car came to be, complete with original interviews with Ford executives and engineers as well as drawings of concept cars. Also included is a short chapter summing up the origins and race history of the GT40. Also a section discussing the concepts for GT40 revivals. Many of these cars have not been revealed in publications previously.
