Built to beat Ferrari, the Ford GT40 is a legendary American race car that went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans four years in a row. On the journey of creating the iconic vehicle, a small batch of roadsters helped tremendously in the birth of a racing champion. The1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype you see here is the first of five roadsters built, and it’s ready for a new home.

This is one of the most original and rarest examples of Ford’s iconic race car and has been cared for meticulously over the past two decades. It is the eighth of 12 GT40 prototypes and the only known roadster that’s still in its original form. Some of the best drivers in the world drove this vehicle, including Carrol Shelby, Jim Clark, and Ken Miles. Made to be a test and development car, Miles drove the vehicle at Riverside to prepare for the GT40’s first run at Le Mans. The 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype is a pivotal part of racing history and now is your chance to own it.
