Re: FORD GT40 GELSCOE 1969 specs

Great! But what other Gulf-painted car is racing as well?

Re: FORD GT40 GELSCOE 1969 specs

Igs, I believe the other light blue car in the video is not a Gulf car but an original GT 40 wearing light blue paint with a red center strip carrying the registration "Tessie." This car is seen racing quite a lot at circuits in England and Europe. Its familiar early rear tail light set up is unique to a few early GT 40's. I could be wrong but that's my take on its brief appearance in the video.

Thumbs up Re: FORD GT40 GELSCOE 1969 specs

Thanks you both, the 'fourth Gulf' car never raced in those colours just used for PR purposes?

Hi Kevin thanks for your compliments. This car is no doubt one of the best in the world and also attractively priced.
