It was at Le Mans, in 1969, that I first saw GT40P/1033. It was sitting in the paddock, and it looked absolutely gorgeous, in its bright metallic blue bodywork. The next time I saw it was in around 1981, at John Etheridge’s workshop, when the tub had been refurbished and was about to be despatched to its new owner in the US. Many a year has gone since then, but it still looks gorgeous, in its red and white Scuderia Filipinetti livery. I’ve seen it a few times since, and the picture shows how it looked at Laguna Seca, back in 1997, but it’s much the same today - very clean, very tidy, and with a beautiful finish. In fact, it’s a pretty good example of what a GT40 should look like, and I absolutely love it! Doesn’t bright red really suit a GT40?
Its long-time owner has decided to part with it, and so it is now for sale. It’s in vintage racing trim, has a full history, of course, and has been checked out and authenticated by Ronnie Spain. If you would like to add it to your stable, send us an email and we’ll put you in touch with the seller.
