Superformance GT40 MkI

It's with trepidation I have decided to offer P2161 for sale. I have invested hundreds of hours and many thousands of dollars making this car as perfect as it can be. The car's history is well documented on this site and I have included a link to the build thread below. Please contact me directly if interested or wanting to learn more about the car.

Please help me keep this thread specific to the sale of the car. I'm happy to share my thoughts on the sale for anyone who would like to contact me offline.

To potential buyers, I assure that you won't be disappointed. The car is everything you can imagine and more. The attention to detail very high. Not counting the hundreds of hours of my time invested, I'm sure I have well north of $200K in the car. I'm a little scared to add it up. I'm asking $175K and not sure I would move much off that.

Please contact me(Michael Hainey) at (three zero three) - six three eight - eight seven six zero or mike "at" summitx dot com. The car is located in Denver, Colorado US.

Something is missing

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Mike,

Say it ain't so!

Do you have plans for something to replace the GT?

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

What the heck happened Mike? You spent all that time researching the motor you wanted and only had it on the road a couple times and seemed really happy with the final product!

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Hi Mike, I am very happy with the way it came out. The car is flawless inside out top to bottom. I have some other things going on that have led me to offer it up. That and if I ever wanted to sell it now is the time since it is in simply perfect condition. Will play it by ear for now.

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Mike,

I’m sorry to hear you are offering it for sale. Few people seem to enjoy their cars as much as you enjoy yours—and with good reason. It’s a fantastic car.

I hope that you can successfully overcome whatever issues you face, before you find a buyer for the car, so that at the other end of them you can continue to enjoy it as you have done (and allow us, particularly wanna-bees like me, to continue to live vicariously through your YouTube exploits!).

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Thank you Mike. I do enjoy the car immensely and also enjoy reading and viewing other people's experiences with their GT40s. I wish the US community was more active and tight knit but that is unrelated to my thoughts on selling the car. I've had either a Ford GT or GT40 for nearly 10 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed the experiences afford by these cars. They are the center of attention no matter where you go. I truly believe the GT40 is the most beautiful car ever constructed. I have an opportunity presenting itself that is very appealing to me at this time that selling the car would help me achieve. I will remain a huge fan of the GT40 forever whether I own one or not. Thanks

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Awesome GT40 and I really like the white vintage look! These SPF MK1's don't seen to come up for sale very often so I would think this will not be available very long. I also have enjoyed your past videos cruising in Co. Good Luck!

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Thanks Gary. I have perceived the same thing about Cobra Country. Why do you think that is? I would think this site would be the predominant place to go for GT40 aficionados.

I'm not sure as many people know about GT40s.com as Cobra Country only because of the huge Cobra following world wide. I think a lot of guys on GT40s.com already have or had a GT40 where a lot of Cobra guys want a GT40. I have sold 6 Cobras and 1 GTD GT40 over the last 17 years and and the GTD GT40 all but 2 Cobras were advertised on Cobra County. The other two I sold on Clubcobra and I actually found my CAV GT40 on Clubcobra sale section so I'd put an ad there also as it is free on Clubcobra. I think I also put an ad on GT40s.com on the GTD GT40 but the guy told me he saw it on Cobra Country.

Thanks guys. I've had a little bit of interest so we'll see what happens. Will see about Cobra Country next if things don't work out.

Re: Superformance GT40 MkI

Mike,
Sorry to hear that. Hopefully the car stays in CO so it has another GT-40 to play with.

BTW, did you sell your larger 295 Avon rears? Mine are < 2/32".

All the best with the sale. It's a great car, and will make someone very happy. Hope you'll stay around the forum after you've sold the GT40.
