Turn Heads and Break Banks with the Last GT40 Roadster Prototype

If you have a few extra thousand, or millions (hopefully not trillions) of dollars with you, head on over to the site provided below and get your hands on the last GT40 Roadster.

If you do, here are some of the interesting parts of history you’re buying along with this convertible:

  • It is the first Roadster ever built.
  • It is the only Roadster that did not go any alteration. Everything’s original.
  • It is the only GT40 driven by Jim Clark, an F1 World Champion
  • It is the only GT40 Henry Ford II himself slid into (at least in the passenger’s seat).

Additionally, the GT40 sports a Ford 289 cubic engine, Weber carburettor, Colotti four-speed gearbox, Borrani wire wheels, and Goodyear tires.

In other words, you are getting yourself not only a rare piece of automotive gem but also a relevant fraction of Ford’s history.

To see this car in the flesh, visit The Quails in Monterey next week (and ask about the price, too).

Anyone got some kidneys we can borrow and sell?
