FORD vs. FERRARI – This is the car!!!
Offered here is a truly amazing factory-built supercar. This is no “kit-car” but a factory built
thoroughbred in every sense. This KVA
Ford GT40 was hand crafted in the KVA factory by the father of the GT40
production, Ken Attwell.
For those of you who do not know, Ken Attwell was the Senior
Engineer and Supervising Production Manager for Ford of Britain. With the Ford Company’s blessing, Ken was
allowed to take molds of the original GT40.
Ken founded the KVA company in England while continuing his career with
Ford of Britain.
KVA produced approximately 550 GT40’s in the span of the
company’s existence. The KVA Ford
GT40 is the only company to have Ford’s blessing to produce the GT40. Thus, replicas or aftermarket production
GT40’s do not compare with the original KVA Ford GT40’s. The KVA production is as close as one can get
to the original Lemans winning GT40. So,
unless you are willing to spend around 10 Million US Dollars, the KVA Ford GT40
is the logical alternative.
Titled as a 1966 Ford GT40
Now, about this vehicle.
This is an unrestored 1966 Ford KVA GT40 and is titled as a 1966 Ford GT40.
Fresh out of storage, this unrestored GT40 has approximately
3,000 miles on the clock. This fabulous,
one owner GT40 has been stored away in a shipping container since 1997 and has
not seen the daylight in 23 years!!!
To get this fabulous, valuable and highly desirable
collector car back on the road, several things needed to be taken car of. The radiator was replaced, the fuel tanks and
sending units were restored and all fluids and seals changed. The engine has been rebuilt and everything
checked from front to rear. This
thoroughbred starts, runs, drives and stops as good as the day it left the
Keeping everything original, this unrestored 1966 Ford KVA
GT40 does show some patina. The paint is
original and shows some patina, age checking, minor chips and some valance road
rash (minor scrapes). However, the paint
is overall in excellent condition for the vintage and still looks very
presentable. It is not a concourse car
but one which can be driven, raced and enjoyed.
This is an original factory produced Ford KVA GT40. Thus, as you can see in the photos, it is a
right-hand drive which is correct for the GT40’s. Years ago, the driver’s seat was re-upholstered,
and the brass grommet rings were not put back in. Thus, if you want to restore this to a
concourse car, the driver’s seat will need the brass grommets installed.
The factory Shelby Cobra 302 V-8 high performance engine has
been completely rebuilt and runs like a champion. The 5-speed manual transmission shifts
smoothly through all gears. The clutch
is new and tight. The chassis is the
factory built KVA frame with adjustable coil-overs on all four corners. The four-wheel disk brakes have been upgraded
to Wilwood disk brakes.
This fantastic 1966 Ford KVA GT40 has never been wrecked and
holds a clean clear California Title.
Further, the vehicle still has the original owner’s manual with a folder
full of documentation and receipts.
This very rare, highly collectible and very valuable 1966
Ford KVA GT40 will be an excellent investment if well cared for and maintained
as it has been. My price is $84,997 as
it sits now. I will be starting a
concourse restoration in the next few months and the price will be near $200k
when finished. Therefore, if you would
like to get a deal now before the price goes up, do not hesitate, you may
purchase with confidence.
This is an investment grade vehicle. Therefore, serious buyers need only
reply. Please, no lowball offers,
dreamers or scammers. Don’t waste my
time or yours.
Do your homework.
Look and see what these are selling for.
You cannot find one under $100k.
If you do, it is probably a cheap shade-tree mechanic-built kit
car. This is the real deal!!! This is not a “kit car” but a factory built
thoroughbred in every sense!!!
