Lot 028: 1994 FORD GTD 40
Finished in white with black leather 'brass ring' seats and grey carpets, this particular left-hand drive example has been part of the collection for the last ten years. Believed to have covered just 288 miles since being professionally refurbished by Adcox Imports of Pensacola, Florida in 1994, it boasts an impressive specification. Powered by a Ford Motorsport M-6007-A50 Long Block 302ci V8 complete with GT40 cylinder heads, GT40 valve train, SVO roller cam, Edelbrock Performer RPM 3 inlet manifold, Carter AFB 9755 750cfm carburettor and Mallory Hyfire IA ignition system, it is reputed to develop some 300bhp @ 6,500rpm. Renault-derived, its five-speed transaxle is operated via a single-plate clutch. Riding on three-piece modular fifteen-inch alloy wheels (6J front, 9J rear) shod with BF Goodrich VR rated tyres, it further benefits from vented / solid ten-inch disc brakes, 12swg aluminium 'explosafe' filled sill-mounted fuel tanks, a four-core high-efficiency radiator and rack and pinion steering. Allegedly capable of 160mph and 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds, accompanying paperwork includes a well-documented build file / manual, a previous bill of sale for $90,000 and a State of Alabama registration document that interestingly identifies the GTD 40 as a 1966 car.
