Henry Ford was angry. He had just been spurned by the enigmatic Enzo Ferrari who had finally told him in no uncertain terms, “Non! I won’t sell Ferrari Automobili.” Henry wanted to get even and to hit hard, fast and where it would hurt the most: at Le Mans 24-hours, the most prestigious race in the world. But first he needed a car. The Shelby Cobras had earlier conquered in the GT class, but overall victory was not theirs. Instead Mr. Ford chose a British prototype, the Lola GT, from which he developed the quintessential ‘60s sportscar as his battle weapon: the Ford GT-40. (40 for forty inches high!). It was a technical, aesthetic, and racing tour-de-force…placing 1-2-3 at Le Mans in 1966, with further victories in the next three consecutive years. This new edition is a re-designed and updated history of the classic 1985 edition that commands hundreds of dollars from collectors. A must for any serious racing enthusiast or Ford aficionado.
