Porter Press – Ford GT40 – The autobiography of 1075


SKU: CMH-Book-PP-GT40-1075

This sumptuous hardback book tells the story of one of the world’s most important and recognisable racing cars. Always raced in Gulf’s iconic blue-and-orange colours, this Ford GT40 (known by its chassis number ‘1075’) won the Le Mans 24 Hours not just once but twice, in 1968 and 1969, with the second victory coming after the closest fight ever seen at the finish of this great endurance race. Four other championship wins – at Brands Hatch, Spa, Watkins Glen and Sebring – add to the distinction of this Ford GT40, recognised as the very best of its breed and driven by legends such as Jacky Ickx, Pedro Rodríguez and Brian Redman. The car’s entire competition life is covered in fascinating detail, together with biographies of its drivers and insights into John Wyer’s crack team that ran it, all supported by a fine collection of period photographs.
