Anytime a Ford GT40 hits the auction block, it’s an industry-wide celebration. When one of those GT40s is a historically-relevant model, however, the stakes become a bit higher. While most are heavily sought-after for their iconic appeal, examples like this 1964 Prototype GT/105 — a specimen with extensive race, test, and development history — are of noble blood.

The Ford GT40 Prototype GT/105 that you see here is one of only five that have ever set foot outside of the factory. Introduced as the fifth purpose-built model for the UK 1964 racing season (and the fourth factory lightweight prototype), the car would make appearances at Nürburgring, Le Mans, and Reims, obtaining thousands of on-track hours, as well as admirable repute from Ford Works’ colleagues, drivers, and teams. Below its hood, the car retains its original 289cu/in Ford V8 and ZF gearbox, complementing its iconic production bodywork. Throughout its career, it would be helmed by various Le Mans winners and Formula 1 champions, before falling into the hands of its current owner. As a result, it’s been labeled as one of the most significant models in the history of the manufacturer’s GT40 line. If you’re interested in the legendary racer, head to Duncan Hamilton ROFGO’s website for more information.
