Competition Coupe
Chassis #: P/1075
Ford's domination of World Championship Sportscar racing was complete by 1967. For 1968, however, the FIA decided to attempt to reduce the increasing speeds by limiting engine displacement to 5-liters. The changes to the rules caused Ford's factory team 7-liter racers to become obsolete. Having nothing left to prove, Ford decided to withdraw from direct sports car racing participation.

With no direct factory entries for 1968, John Wyer's J.W. Automotive, sponsored by Gulf Oil Company, became the Ford representative in World Championship Sportscar Racing.

This example, chassis number 1075, was a newly constructed Mirage style lightweight that won at LeMans two years in a row in 1968 and 1969. Pedro Rodriguez and Lucien Bianchi drove it to victory at LeMans in 1968. It repeated its victory at LeMans in 1969 where it was piloted by Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver.

Chassis 1075 racing record included 6 wins in its 11 races. After its racing career was finished, the GT40 was on display at the Indianapolis Speedway Museum for many years, before returning to private ownership in 1984.

This is one of only two race cars in history to record consecutive wins at LeMans.
