Rebuffed by Ferrari, ire burned with a great intensity and focus. The intention of the new GT40 program was clearly defined and had no time for distractions. However, Ford would quickly realize it could benefit from success on the track. They would be quick to capitalize on the momentous victory in 1966.

After a couple of years and millions of dollars of investment, Ford would finally reign supreme on the fast country roads just outside the French city of Le Mans. The intention had been to bring to an end Ferrari's reign in the 24 hour event. Ford would end up doing this emphatically by not just taking the overall victory, but finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

The iconic 1-2-3 photo would be the perfect sales photo for Ford. The motor company realized the potential before them marketing the victory at Le Mans. Therefore, a small batch of GT40 Mk1 chassis would leave the FAV facility in Slough, England for the promotional purposes.

In 1967, FAV would build just seven examples of the GT40 Mk1 chassis that would be shown at events and made available for sale. This was all for the purposes of promotion and marketing Ford's success on the world stage. One of those seven examples would be P 1058.

This marketing and promotional program would be given to FAV in early 1967. Not long afterward, P 1058 would join his sister cars on a trip across the Atlantic to the United States where it would take part in a tour of Ford dealerships throughout the northeastern portion of the country.

In December of 1967 P 1058 would finish its tour and would find a home with Al Grillo Ford in Lynn, Massachusetts. Ed Casey, a representative from Shelby American Inc. would then use the car at events throughout the east coast. Completed in Carmen Red, P 1058 would be put through its paces providing people a glimpse of the car that dominated Le Mans, and that would dominate in '67 as well.

Following its demonstration runs and appearances throughout 1967 and most of 1968, P 1058 would finally find its way to its first private owner. Even though David Carroll would become the car's first owner in the autumn of 1968 it was still the perfect tool for promotional endeavors. One of those would include the engine serving as the soundtrack for a Gulf Oil commercial.

A year later, Carroll would pass the GT40 Mk1 on to its next owner—John 'Skip' Barber. The car would be retained by Barber for a short period of time. However, when it was purchased by Harvey Siegel of New York, P 1058 would find a home for the next 40 years.


After the four decades with Siegel, the GT40 would change hands becoming the property of George Getz. While with Getz, P 1058 would be freshened. The work would be conducted by Harley Cluxton's Grand Touring Cars Inc.

In 2011, the car would be sold again. The current owner would take delivery of the GT40 Mk1 and would immediately take to the track taking part in the National Shelby Convention held at Fontana Speedway in 2013. In addition to taking to the track, P 1058 would also make appearances on the concours and car show circuits as well. This would include a first place at the SAAC Car Show and then an appearance at the Concours d'Elegance of America held in Plymouth, Michigan.

Ideal for the concours circuit, P 1058 retains an original interior, all of its original bodywork, Borrani wheels, original ZF transaxle and even its original luggage boxes. Refinished in its original Carmen Red, this GT40 Mk1 remains about as original as a car can get. Even now, P 1058 could be used for promotional purposes recalling the era when Ford's resolute determination turned an iconic 40 inches into Le Mans dominance.

Offered at Gooding & Company's 2014 Pebble Beach auction, the 1967 Ford GT40 Mk1, chassis P 1058, would sell for $3,520,000.
