Thanks Dave
Book ordered,

here is an excerpt from the email from the publisher:

This book is not intended to be a catalogue of all the drawings used to build the GT40 and derivatives - it does not contain sufficient information to make it possible to manufacture a GT40.

key points

  • Lavish production and large page format to display the drawings in all their glory.
  • Over 180 original GT40 technical drawings, plus numerous additional supporting drawings, illustrations, graphics and period photographs.
  • Technical drawings featuring the chassis components, engine, transmission, body and interior, suspension, brakes and steering.
  • Explanatory text and captions to put each of the drawings into context.
  • Details of the main companies and personalities behind the GT40 engineering story.
  • Superb colour cutaway illustrations of various evolutions of the GT40 and chassis structure.
  • Produced with the support of the Ford Archives........"
In an email that Louise sent there was some indication that early orders would be at the price discussed above, but as the number of books remaining decreased there would be a price increase for the last of the books remaining.
Pre-orders are now available from the website.
As Ryan has mentioned above, price increases to 350 than 500 for the remaining books.
