The Ford GT40 needs no introduction -- designed to be a ferrari beater, winner of the 24 hours of lemans four years in a row, and the list goes on. With only around 100 original cars made, replicas with varying degrees of accuracy have been produced almost since the introduction of the original cars. Superperformance makes the best known (and most expensive) replicas today, but several smaller manufacturers have built nice examples over the years. American gt was one of those manufacturers -- they built a handful of very accurate cars in the late 1990s, supposedly derived from the kva molds that descended directly from the Ford factory in england. This very car was the first american gt prototype and appeared in the companys brochure. Chris bramhall, the head of american gt, drove this car for some time before he decided to cannibalize it for components to complete the second kit. A good friend and client of motorcar studio bought the partially-disassembled chassis in 2002 and began a six-year process to source (and custom fabricate) the components necessary to put this GT40 back on the road. The original silver paint was stripped and the body was repainted in wimbledon white with guardsman blue racing stripes. The car was rewired nose to tail as there were several "first try" problems with the original wiring. A new air conditioning system was installed and the interior completely redone. A new ho 302 cubic inch v8 was built for the car with gorgeous custom headers and a four-barrel holley carb; its mated to a five-speed transaxle from a porsche 911. Rear hub carriers were redesigned to accommodate slightly wider custom wheels and tires. As in the original GT40, this car has twin fuel tanks and gauges with a switch to toggle between the two. The car was completed (for the second time) in 2008 and has been enjoyed as a nice-weather driver (and very occasional weekend track toy) by our client ever since. Current georgia registration and clear georgia title both match the vin on the car; registered and titled as a 1964 Ford thunderbird. Street legal with headlights, taillights, brake lights, blinkers, horn and wiper. Full-time rear camera with screen mounted on console. All service is up-to-date; its an incredibly fun car to drive and always draws a crowd. For more information about this Ford GT40 replica available at motorcar studio in atlanta, please call .
