GT40 MK II
Central Classic Cars is the Midwest CAV GT40 Dealer.
1966 Ford GT40 Mk. 1 Recreation by Cape Advanced Vehicles
Completely Hand Assembled By Factory, Fully Optioned.
Central Classic Cars LTD is a fully Licensed CAV vehicle dealer.
CAV is known to be one of the best, if not the best GT40 replica. CAV cars are not kit cars. They are factory built to the highest standards using state of the art techniques and a stainless steel monocoque.
According to the factory, this car has over 1000 improvements over the earlier (pre 100) cars. This includes improved suspension, adjustable seat and pedal box (for increased comfort and the ability to seat drivers up to 6'4), improved air conditioning, 930 Porsche CV joints, thicker halfshafts, improved suspension uprights,
fully adjustable suspension, and Wilwood brakes.
The car is stunning in its Gulf livery. The photos do not do this car justice. It is a true homage to the Gulf GT40s that dominated Lemans. The GT 40 will be featured in the upcoming major motion picture FORD V. FERRARI due out in November of 2019.
CAV is the only company to be officially licensed to sell a Gulf motorsport car. Neither Porsche nor the other GT40 replica manufacturers are licensed to do Gulf cars. CAV is the only officially sanctioned Gulf GT40 replica. The car is registered with the Gulf Oil Company registry and is officially endorsed by them.
This is a rare opportunity to own a Gulf GT40 recreation by one of the finest companies in the industry. This car delivers excitement and performance that exceeds far more expensive cars. While other cars may look the part few can deliver the exhilaration this car delivers. To get in and drive this car is a very special experience, a step back in time when cars were raw and visceral. Man and machine became one.
Our CAV GT40 has excellent provenance and is a very unique example, having been owned by the head of CAV North America. This car has been meticulously documented and maintained and is considered one of the best CAVs offered for sale anywhere.
