The Ford GT40 was made famous when it beat the legendary Ferraris at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. Although this car did not race, it was the first GT40 road car delivered in North America. Built at the Ford Advanced Vehicles factory in Slough, Buckinghamshire, England, this GT40 was briefly used as a test and evaluation car on Ford’s test track. Shortly after, it served as Ford North America’s official Promotional GT40. The same family had owned this car for 40 years and it only shows 11,000 miles on the odometer.
