These are Superformance seats, the "headrest" is just a slight bump out of the seat.

- I made my own seats to get into the car and sit with a helmet. They are covered with leather, but the bolsters begin to show wear and tear. I needed something to support me laterally and I always gave enough room for the legs and the head room. Easily replaced by stock seats.

The original seats I know I have an SPF

Here's a poor picture, but I think you get the idea.

Re: Superformance GT40 MKII For Sale

Kirby, your car is a stunner. Absolutely fantastic. What about giving Scottsdale/BJ or one of the other big auctions a try? Seems like a really, really nice car (like yours) can go for big $$ there.

Thanks for the complement, Cliff.
I drove it to a 'car show' the other day and it was a big hit.

I actually waffle between selling it or not.

If I really get serious, I will take your advice.

Interestingly, one person was disappointed that I'd done so many modifications to the car. My car, my mods.

He wanted a 'stock Superformance', whatever that is...

Thanks again,
Kirby

No, these cars only sell to bottom feeding, opportunistic buyers at those auctions. The slightly drunk, "I wanna be on TV" bidders are only buying if they can steal. There are better channels for selling these cars. Places where the specs and value determine the price.

I'm unable to reconcile the circumstance that at least two premium well-built SPF GT40s are for sale HERE for significantly less money than a new identically equipped one would cost, and then there's the long wait of a year or more for the new one.

I noted Rick's idea that auctions mostly consist of the slightly drunk opportunist buyers at common auctions. That's likely; But the pricing here is low for most of the cars for sale, and yet there's no interest yet.

I did not miss the remark that one individual desired a perfectly stock previously owned GT40 - and I agree with the remark "whatever that is." Is having a Gurney bubble a stock one; what about two bubbles? Most often custom improvements better the appearance, performance, and efficiency of a given car. However, I realize there are purists out there.

Those sacred places where specs and value determine the price are apparently elusive. If it's not SPF themselves, and if it's not here on the Forum, then where. There must be way too many lookie loos out there since one of cars on this thread was looked at over 6,000 times. Maybe it is the Cobra guy after all.

Rule #2 says your avatar should include your actual 'given name'.

E.g.: Something akin to my own moniker or Rick's or soulcoaxer's.

Re: Superformance GT40 MKII For Sale

Just an update.

I've had a couple of interested contacts, but no sale.
Everyone wants me to drop my pants on the price.
Why? The car drives well and handles better than new.
OK, it's got some 'patina'....

Oh, well... Guess I'll keep it.


FWIW,
Kirby
