It looks like it'd cost $1469.76 plus shipping and handling to get all the packs. I'd be in to it if it was an 05 and/or maybe if it had the 427.
Did they keep a spare tire in the frunk during the race to keep the nose down? Does a spare actually fit in a real GT40?

Call it a back-end loaded model kit (pricing model).

Sounds like they may have working capital problems. Has anyone on the forum built one of their kits?

I believe in the mid 60s LeMans rules required the carrying of a spare. I seem to recall an old video of a pit stop, spare was removed from the trunk, bounced on the ground, and returned to the trunk.

Yes, I recall the same. Back in the day, in order to offer some semblance to the road/street going counterpart, the race cars required a passenger seat, spare tire and luggage space.
