    Kar-Kraft assets purchased to yield more Mk IV

    Riley purchased Teske Kar-Kraft that has nothing to do with the original MK-IV manufacturer. Teske registered a company in early 2000 to built 7 "continuation" cars (J13 thru J19). Kenny Thompson built the 7 cars and Teske reproduced the T44 gearbox for this cars. The Original Kar-Kraft...

    Mid-engined ‘Vette

    The C8 has a Tremec Dual Clutch gearbox. It is not a normal automatic gearbox with wet clutches. This is the only gearbox the C8 will have and is similar to the 2020 GT500 gearbox (also built by tremec)

    GT40 driving

    the main difference for me is the engine location for weight distribution this affects braking and turning since the Cobra is nose heavy you can brake inside the turn. On a rear engine you do not have the weight of the engine in front to turn. Brakes are small and non powered so they are both...

    Could use some education here....Thanks in advance!

    One of the main issues with GT40 (original or replicas) are brakes. Wheels are 15" and no power brakes. This car has 6 piston calipers in front and should brake "decent" if you have the muscle to stop it. The last GT ERA built for me was 17" BRM style wheels with bigger brakes and power...

    Could use some education here....Thanks in advance!

    I looks like a nice ERA GT. I have owned 4 ERA cars but 3 were purchased from ERA (two GT and one Cobra). My red GT (similar to this one LHR with similar engine) was sold in BAT last year for $100K by the 3rd Owner. I assume the price will go up since $72K for an ERA is very low. It has...

    J-10 for sale

    G7A (J-10) had many engine issues due to Ford trying different combinations. The race it ran at Fuji Japan finished 2nd. I think they had plans for racing in 71 but never happen. CanAm was not easy dealing with McLaren cars.

    Classic Le Mans 2018

    I do not why but at the garage it only showed the name of the driver, Car and engine. Some of the engine sizes were wrong. It would have been nice to show the chassis number. Even at the museum did not have the chassis number on the GT40 on display. The heat and the long walks was difficult...

    A red MK-IV that someone call J-What was showed in California a few years ago. I was told the car was sold and is outside the US. This could be the Russian MK-IV. BTW google will give you 2 different photos of the car. In one of them you can see the bad body work.

    New gt40 orders

    Cost (kit, zf, engine, painting, labor etc), Time to deliver and other factors. The GT40 generation are too old now. This generation can not relate to it. Cobras are a lot cheaper and fun to drive. In the late 90 GT40 sales were almost dead. The 2005 Ford GT helped to revive it.

    A different iteration of the GT40?

    I saw Kenny's J-19 Breadwagon at his house with automatic trans-axle. It sounds very nice and perfectly done. I love the TBird rear lights
