not something you see everyday, a Ford GT40 in Gulf racing colours

I went to pick up some red oxide primer today for the bus. I got to the local paint shop to find this parked outside… not something you see everyday, a Ford GT40 in Gulf colours… vroooom!

At a height of 40 inches (the 40 part of GT40) measured at the windshield, not exactly sure how I would find getting in and out of it, but wow what an amazing looking car!

Ford GT40 in Gulf colours… nice!

Not sure which Ford V8 engine it was running (4.2 litre, 4.7 litre or 7 litre) but would have loved to have been around when it started up, I bet it made an utterly awesome sound! 🙂
