Mike Burroughs from Stanceworks.com wrote a great piece titled “A LIVING LEGEND-HENRY A DAVIS’S 1966 FORD GT40 MK1 LE MANS RACE CAR” for their site, which shouldn’t be missed. The story is very well written and befitting to what we are all about here at CarBuildIndex, covering the car’s restoration and embarking upon it’s history, as well. If that doesn’t quite satisfy your 1966 Ford GT40 appetite though, be sure to check out RacingIcons.com for more detail on chassis #1040‘s restoration and then check out our three additional features below from our own past files for GT40-related overload bliss. How better to celebrate your American pride for this Memorial Day weekend? Enjoy!
