  • I have some original pictures of this 40. It was in my possession for a time in late ’68 and most of ’69. It did the Gulf Formula “G” Oil Commercial in ’69 at Riverside, I was trying to buy it from Watley at that time but was young and didn’t have the resources to complete the purchase. I wonder where it might be now.

    • Fred…those were the days weren’t they! It’d be great to see your pics.
      I don’t have any of mine, thanks to some turbulent divorces:)

  • 1024 came to Canada in 1990 and was vintage raced. At Seattle Portland , Laguna ,Watkins glen and road America. Restored in 02/03 for the 100 years of ford at the Laguna seca.
    Then was sold a person in the uk. And not seen since.

  • Gavin Henderson in the UK owns GT40P/1024 c
    chassis now. The car has licence plate “EFX 226C” Gavin races it in FIA classic events and a Google search will reveal his exploits. I would like copies of any photographs relating to 1024. Please can they be emailed to a.komosa@btopenworld.com if possible. I’d be grateful.

    • Andrew, thanks for your contribution. You are talking about GT40P/1024 c. C for continuation? Or rebuilt? Or are we talking about the original 1024 that went back to UK after being seen n Laguna Seca in 02/03.
      Thanks for clarification.

    Where are they now?
    Thanks

    • Hello Doug

      I am not sure where these cars would be now as this website is an on going work in progress and I have not completed the sections yet for these 2 cars. The info may be available online but, like I said, I have not begun to research these 2 cars yet. If any one knows about ether of these 2 GT40 cars please reply here and share the information. Thanks

      • I knew the owner of GT40 P1024 in the early 1970’s. It was yellow and the owner Peter Sheen the owner of a wine merchant near Dorking Surrey. UK took me for ride in it. It was a great experience, we had wheel spin going up a hill on a dual carriageway going south on the A24. I may have slide pictures of it, but they may take a while to find.

        Regards Martin Baker.
