  1. A bit slow to join your forum !
    A friend linked me to it
    I owned GT40/1005 from 1971>1975
    I sold the car to Salt Walter in the US

    I have written about the car in my book ‘Let them stare!’

  2. I have an original B/W photo of TJ Drury driving a GT 40 at Brands Hatch on 22/01/1967. The car carries No 52 and appears White with black bonnet. Happy to share the image if it helps. The photo was taken by a relative.
