We are delighted to present this genuine and superbly prepared 1966 Ford GT40 Mk1 with chassis number P/1062. A front running car with continuous history from new and never seriously damaged throughout its entire life P/1062 is now offered for sale by its long-term owner.
Ford GT40 P/1062 was one of 31 road-equipped cars built by Ford Advanced Vehicles at Slough. Essentially a softened race car, the road version of the Mk1 GT40 differed in having softer suspension, less aggressive brakes, Borani wire wheels, a silenced exhaust system, a heater and windscreen demister, twin luggage boxes housed in the tail, a fully timed cloth interior, fully working door locks, and “Ford” sill badges. Despite all this softening, the GT40 as a road car wasn’t really practical for everyday use and interest was low. Having planned to build at least 50 road cars, all at a pre-calculated loss, Ford stopped at 30 units plus one prototype.
Finished in Metallichrome Toledo blue with black interior trim and fitted with the standard Cobra 289cid V8 fitted to all GT40 Mk1s, P/1062 was shipped new to Ford Division in America arriving in Detroit at the end of the December ’66 along with P/1063. On arrival both cars were assigned to Ford’s experimental Kar Kraft division. Quite what Kar Kraft did with the car is a mystery and a full year later P/1062 was still in Ford’s stock inventory in Detroit where it would remain until being assigned to be sold-off at the end of ’68. At the time of its disposal P/1062 was one of three GT40s to have a “road-modified” MkII tail fitted and was sold in early ’69 to Dr Len Cheney in California who used P/1062 as a road car until the end of the year when he sold it to an unknown buyer.
Despite the passage of time, the next few years of the history of P/1062 are a mystery, but it was owned in the late-70s by David Brown of Florida. He sold the car to Harley Cluxton in Arizona who in turn sold it to collector and racer Jeff Lewis of California. The car had by this time lost its MkII tail for a standard Mk1 item. Jeff raced the car in the West Coast historic scene in the 80s. Throughout his ownership P/1062 was painted white with a black centre stripe.
In 1991 Jeff sold the car through Mike Sheehan to Hans-Joachim Weber in Germany who then modified the car to full race spec finishing in blue with a white center stripe. Weber then became very active with the car in European historic racing during the next decade before selling P/1062 in 1999 to David McElrain, owner of P/1053. With David committed to racing P/1053, the current owner took over the driving duties of P/1062 and bought the car for himself in 2001 immediately repeating his previous year’s winning the Tour Auto, a revival of the Tour de France. Since then, P/1062 has been at the forefront of the European historic racing scene including the Le Mans Classic where it has not missed participating with success since 2004. In 2006 at Le Mans, the car suffered a flash fire which singed the bodywork but caused no real or further damage. The owner then took the opportunity to fully restore the car over the next year before returning to the track once more with multiple participations at the Goodwood Revival where P/1062 led the GT40 race in 2013 after a stellar start. Prior to running at Goodwood in 2014, P/1062 also won the Plateau 4 Le Mans Classic event.
After another good 2014 racing season, the car is now being fully serviced and it is being sold in fresh and race-ready condition with a fresh engine and gearbox, new fuel bags, new hub bearings, etc.. The 2007 FIA HTP papers are being renewed and the car comes with a set of spare wheels and running spares.
Despite not having a period racing history, P/1062’s no-stories provenance coupled with its more recent historic racing record is pretty impressive, always being a reliable front-runner in the capable hands of its current owner. Without a doubt, P/1062 is one of the very best GT40s and its next lucky owner will continue to be a welcome entrant in all the blue-ribbon historic race events around the world.

We are delighted to offer this extraordinary 1975 Kremer Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR for sale which is one of only 57 Porsche 911 3.0 RSR build.
For the 1974 season, Porsche produced yet another evolution of the 911. Developed around the 3-litre RS homologation special, the 3-litre RSR became the most successful Group 4 car of its era. In its early years, the RSR swept all before it in IMSA, Trans Am and the FIA World Championship, production beginning in late 1973.
They were equipped with Typ 911/75 engines featuring high-lift camshafts, Bosch slide injection and twin plug ignition. There was also a large capacity dry sump oil tank and dual megaphone exhaust from the 2.8 RSR. Displacement remained unchanged from the RS at 2992cc but the compression was upped from 9.8 to 10:3.1, the result having been 330bhp at 8000rpm.
The five-speed transmission from the RS was installed along with a new dry plate Fichtel and Sachs sintered clutch. Coil springs were either steel or titanium. Visually the 3-litre RSR was enhanced with special five-spoke centre-locking 15-inch wheels, these having been 10.5-inches wide at the front and a massive 14-inches at the back. Ultra-light grassfire panels were used for the ventilated wheel arch extensions, bumpers, front lid, engine cover and rear spoiler.
Inside, the stripped-out cockpit got a solitary high-backed Recaro bucket seat with vinyl bolsters and cloth center, a six-point racing harness holding the occupant firmly in place.
Weighing in at a mere 900kg, the RSR was obviously a very quick car, in excess of 170mph having been possible while 0-60 took less than five seconds. Towards the end of 1974, most cars were coming out of the factory with closer to 350bhp, the last dozen examples (made from mid 1974) having been built on the 1975 model year H-series platform. Consequently, these cars use a 560 as opposed to a 460 VIN prefix. Some later cars were also equipped with the Carrera Turbo-style flat front bumper first used by Peter Gregg and the Brumos team.
The RSR raced through the 1974 and ’75 seasons vanquishing the opposition and providing Porsche with its most successful customer racing car.
When Porsche stopped with the production of the 3.0 RSR (switching to the 934), it had 4 RSR chassis left. One was used to build another car for Ludwig Heimrath while the other 3 RSR chassis were supplied to Kremer who build-up 3 full spec RSR's identical to the cars supplied by Porsche. One of these 3 RSR was #005 0004 (the hidden production number given by Porsche) whereby the first three numbers refer to the year (005 for 1975) and the following 4 digits denoting the actual number of chassis in that year. Kremer used to also use the Porsche hidden production number as the VIN-Nr for the car.
As such, a total of 53 plus 4 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR were build.
#005 0004 is in immaculate condition with fresh paint and decals. The original RSR type 911/75 engine crankcase, complete with all racing components, comes with the car in a separate crate. The engine currently fitted in the car is a 3.0 liter 930 turbo case with approximately 15 hours which was freshened and gone through last winter. The top of the engine (slides, trumpets, injection pump, etc.) is original. The transmission (correct type 915) also has approximately 15 hours and all bushings were recently replaced. The car currently has an electronic distributor and electric tacho and and rev-counter fitted but the original distributor and VDO gauges come with the car as do the original trailing control arms (custom replacements are fitted on the car). The seat in the car is the original Lollipop seat. The windshield is new and unscratched. Correct 917-like Speedline RSR wheels. This car has been completely gone through and it is truly race ready.
005 0004 is very well documented with continuous ownership from new. Available with the car are the original ONS Wagenpass, 2007 FIA HTP, an extensive picture restoration file together with a fully documented history file and in-period pictures.
In addition to the original 917-type wheels fitted to the car, this well known "Wally's Jeans RSR" comes with 2 sets of black powder coated BBS wheels.More...
