Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a solid historic collection of contemporary articles from various car magazines covering the iconic Ford GT40 in all its incarnations. Selections from American and British magazines cover the more than 45 years since Ford first introduced the racing GT40 prototype at the New York Auto Show in 1964, all the way up to the road-going Ford GT supercar of 2005. Photos and graphics are well-reproduced.

There have been many excellent recent books on the GT40, but it's fun to read the original source material written by automotive magazine journalists at the time Ford first challenged Ferrari for supremacy on the world's race tracks, culminating with four consecutive wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans from 1966-69.

For anyone who was a racing fan in the 1960s -- or a student of that era today -- this is an enjoyable addition to your bookshelf.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a large collection of newspaper and magazine articles featuring the Ford GT40 super car from 1964 to the recent past. It is not your typical coffee table book which is so often published on the GT40. Rather it's a reference book full of substance, useful to anyone wanting to know more detail about this legend. Articles cover the GT40 on the American circuit and Le Mans in Europe. Contents span popular press as well as technical press. Understandably due to the book format only about a quarter of the contents is in colour - so get that coffee table book as well to compliment this unique reference book!

My step father-in-law is going to build a GT40 kit car and we were stumped over what to get him for Christmas. I happened upon this book in a search and bought it on a whim. He was THRILLED. He said people reference this book often on the discussion forums he frequents and he had previously been unable to find it in bookstores. Needless to say, he spent the rest of the afternoon ignoring everyone ;-).
