Re: #1032 @ le mans

I always assumed it was duct tape of some description to cut down glare but I could be wrong.

Re: Original GT40 B pillar

Hi,

The rear clip does have a swage but as Brian states, not on the door or the B-pillar.

Re: Gt40 1013

Hi,

1013 was reunited with its original reg. number OVX 355D when Bryan Wingfield last restored it in the late 1990's. I think that it is now in Belgium.

It is 1070 without question. The fire occurred in about 1970. How much of that original chassis is present in the current 1070 I'm not sure.

Re: Fortyfication 114

The vertical "line" under the read button is a slot cut into the metalwork. It was for cooling the fuel pumps and is a feature of the Mk.IIs that raced at Le Mans in 1966.
