GT 40 Mk21966 Superformance GT40 Mk2
Unable to unseat Ferrari at the 24 hours of LeMans in 1965 Henry Ford II became increasingly frustrated with his failing GT40 program. Ford II turned to an outsider from the Ford corporate program and enlisted Carroll Shelby and is rag tag team of mechanics, engineers and racers to make the GT40 a winner. The result was the evolution of the GT40 Mk I, starting by ditching the small block Ford engines and shoehorning in a big block 427 side oiler. Body work was modified for better aerodynamics along with engine and brake cooling, which is evident by the Mk II's prominent rear scoops.
