I Bought this book after looking at the GT J-6 on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan and wondering about it's history. Turns out, there is a huge amount of history behind these cars and the people who built them. For someone who's wanting to build a replica of one of the fine cars, this book is a must-have. It contains many details about the design and construction of these cars that could be found in few other places (like how chassis 104 through 107 were built from lighter gauge tubing and 22 gauge sheetmetal instead of 24 gauge, which led to their retirement when car 106 had a chassis failure in testing). Also, there are several pages in color showing various cars in different paint schemes. For those who are interested in the race history of the GT's there are several pages describing what races were entered by which chassis, who was driving, what position they placed, and what engine was in the car at that time. Finally, in the end of the book is a section which describes what happened to each chassis and where it was located as of 1986 (the first year of publishing). While this is interesting, it is now dated material and is the only downside of this book.
Overall, this is an excellent book which should be added to any ford racing fan's collection.

This is a comprehensive book on the GT 40. Lots of facts, info, not found elsewhere. I wish I had bought it years ago when it was much cheaper.
