The Original

Ford finally secured a LeMans victory in 1966, after two disappointing attempts with the GT40. This was not enough for the Detroit based factory and in 1967 they fielded a revised Mark IV GT40 and again they beat Maranello's best. Both the 1966 and 1967 GT40s were powered by 7 litre engines, which were left obsolete by the 5 litre limit enforced in 1968. This was the maximum for the limited production (25 car minimum) sports car class, the displacement limit for prototypes changed to a mere 3 litre. These rule changes made Ford's works team lose interest, but some privateers would return to LeMans with the GT40.Most of the GT40s built in 1968 and 1969 were built to Gulf specification.With the Ford works team, Ferrari had withdrawn for the time being to focus on building a 3-litre prototype and a 5 litre production car.
