Re: need ford gt40 chassis blueprints

I'd suggest a search before your first post and see just how hard they are to get, as well as how well guarded they are by those few who have them... Good Luck.

Re: need ford gt40 chassis blueprints

Hi Dave.

With all due respect I think you would have more luck catching a flock of flying pigs than getting a set of blueprints for a 40.

Re: need ford gt40 chassis blueprints

Dimi,

It's not that easy. Believe me, I've been trying for about 9 years. Found the odd source but tres expensive.

Re: need ford gt40 chassis blueprints

I don't think you will find blue prints for the original GT40 chassis anywhere. They are closely guarded. There are lost of pictures of the chassis, in various publications, and these could be used to come up with a good approximation of the original chassis.

However, if you want blue prints for a space frame chassis so you can build your own replica, then there are plenty about on these forums.

Try Dave Brown of Classic Car Developments in New Zealand. He has built 3 exact replicas but it might cost you $3000.00 for the drawings including assembly drawings
