Hi Henty

Have you found Robin Sundt's website
Do you want to build a GT40? Ford GT40 Web Site Index GT 40 Replica Kit Sports Cars

That said I believe this car was sold on about 4 years ago.

Re: Henty's scratchbuild GT40

Ok, so some slow but meaningful progress has been made. I have bought an engine, a 2016 Ford Coyote racing engine. The engine has run for one season in a Ford Ranger 4x4 off road car that belongs to Neil Woolridge from Neil Woolridge Motor Racing here in SA, to say I'm excited is an understatement The other good news is I have tracked down a 2nd hand set of South African made Halibrand look-alike rims.

Re: Henty's scratchbuild GT40

Hi Robert
Thanks, bit of a story behind those rims.

I saw them on a light pick-up some 18 months ago on my way to church. I eventually tracked down the owner and found out they were South African made rims

Then I tracked down the manufacturers and they informed me that they did not have any in stock and there was no rerun planned.

Some 18months later I walked into a tyre fitment centre and there is a rim on the shelf that looked exactly like the ones on the pick-up! On inquiring about the rims the gent said "they are 2nd-hand and are for sale" needless to say I had to tie myself down, I nearly leapt with excitement. Then he told me the price, half the factory price, with tyres that are fair . Needless to say I made an unplanned but very happy purchase
