Just saw this on ebay: New GT40

Is it really available now? Or is this guy trying to get his pre orders up? And don't even get me started about how much it's currently at!!

If only the new Ford GT had been based on the 1964 prototype. Now that would have been interesting. Why all the hip about the sports version? I too fell for this in the last batch the GT40's. I think I'II wait for the standard version and maybe the plastic kit.

Why it was 40.5" in height! There am I in Sliderule man mode.

Is that the same trench/pothole that Alan Ladd's leading ladies stood in during his films?
Wrong, for the Targa that setup must of been in 1965 GT39 it ran as a roadster. 1966 OK back to coupes.
Seriously, Minimetal the Gurney Bubble and other aids for taller drivers came after the design and they did occupy a small amount of roof space. The cars were still 40.5" and some tall drivers could get into them as some had lowered flat floors.
