Auction Block: 1966 Ford GT40 MK 1

1966 was a great year for Ford. Producing what many consider one of the most well-known racing beasts around, Ford proudly displayed their GT40 MK 1 for the first time that year, cementing themselves in the racing world as a serious contender from the United States.

Now, thanks to RM Sotheby’s, a completely restored 1966 Ford GT50 MK 1 is available for auction at this year’s Concours D’ Elegance in Monetary, California at the end of August this summer. It’s one of only 31 cars made for the road at the time and this one, in particular, was acquired by a well-known and respected GT40 restorer Robert Ash. He undertook the entire task, even down to cleaning up the factory-issuer hoses and spark plugs. The carburetor was restored, as was the body, and the final result features a competition-style crossover exhaust that adds quite a bit of racing flair to this GT40. The price? It’s expected to sell anywhere between $3,250,000 – $3,750,000. Not bad right? [Purchase]
