For you history buffs, this is the original Gulf Oil livery.

After you (Paul) enlightened me that that was actual P1075! at the Apex track during Rally XIII, I just happened to have watched this 2013 "GT40s at Amelia Island" video last night. Features twelve GT40s, and P1049 is 4th, starting at 4:15 in the video.


P1075 in the vid was "saved the best for last" at 9:45.

The more I watch and read on the 60s GTs the more I could just kick myself for missing out on 2016 Le Mans. I feel like I missed out on something historic that'll never happen again.

I was there. It was amazing. Gurney, Hobbs and Redman had a panel discussion that was equal parts informative and hilarious.

Glickenhaus SCG004 and Boot. Good article on the original Hurst Baja Boot.

Saw the 004 at Amelia. Sunday afternoon got to see it (and hear it) on the street leaving the show. Pretty cool looking car. Interior on this example is a bit strong for my taste.

I agree with you Andy. Not my tempo. Looks great from the outside though.

I’m surprised Andy. You seem like a leopard print guy. Lol

Obviously P1049 is my favorite. Mine will be on Bring A Trailer in a few weeks. Gotta make room for my next toy.88EAAB13-1D78-4E99-901D-BC779C0CC615.jpeg30744D71-E0BD-4C36-9660-D847C495B5BC.jpeg

It may belong to Chris McAllister in Indianapolis. He has an original GT 40 with same paint.

Sorry I should have updated this sooner. My Superformance closes on BaT tomorrow Saturday April 16 at 1:40 central time. It should be interesting.
