Having a P/1067 chassis, it looks like that this 1966 Ford GT40 was the last one of its kind that was made and it was given on sale in 1967, containing a MK II rear clamshell. Solely one of three cars are known to contain that very special rear.
As an another proof of how special this dime is, we tell you now that this very Ford GT40 is the only existing car known that still has the MK II rear.
