Re: My CAV GT40 Arrived Today

A hearty congrats Gary! Anxious to hear how this one stacks up to the old GTD! The car sounds amazing... please do tell, when you have a moment, what the exhaust consists of! Love the color!

Beautiful car Gary! Except for having to back it onto the lift gate I bet that truck driver was thrilled to be at the wheel!

Re: My CAV GT40 Arrived Today

So that video backing out of the garage is last summer from the owner I bought it from. It's CAV #169 has Ford 351/408 stroker with ZF Transaxle. Single Carb right now but I have a set of Italian webers sitting here ready to go on. Going to vintage the car also similar to what I did with my carbon fiber Cobra I just sold to a guy in France.

Re: My CAV GT40 Arrived Today

Here are a few more pics. We got 3 inches of snow today in Dallas so not getting it out side for awhile.......normal temp this time of year is 65 too! The exhaust is just custom made headers with trumpets or basically straight pips.

Here are a couple of videos of the Carbon Fiber Cobra I just sold and the vintage look I want to take the GT40 too.

Re: My CAV GT40 Arrived Today

Hey Gary,
She looks brand new! How many miles on her? What's the bhp and torque numbers? I love my CAV and it's still not done yet ! Can you tell me what you paid for it? You can pm me if you like.

That car looks great. If any of you know Gary, you know that every bolt and nut will be polished or cleaned. This car will look better than it did new by spring!
