1966 was the year Ford made its name in racing. The year GT40s placed 1-2-3 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This was one of those three. Chassis no. P/1016 came in third that day, bearing the number 5 and a striking gold livery. Powered by a race-tuned 7.0L V8 engine, it is the only one of the three to have run as an automatic model. It was raced only a handful of times following Le Mans and has recently been completely restored to the condition it was in when it crossed the finish line. An exceptional piece of automotive and racing history.
