I suggest you get in contact with the GT40 enthusiasts club and get a copy of the back issues of “Fortification” and find the articles relating to the recreated MK IVs that were recently done. Think they built 8 MK IV and one J car in the limited production run that they did. I think they did an alloy honeycomb tub. They had the correct T44 transaxle and big block engineHi Ryan
I have been working on cars fabrication autobody restoration for better part of 25yrs. I operate a small body shop now for myself. I have a full body shop of tools. (auto cad, welding mig/tig, plasma cutting, 3 layout tables, car rotisserie engine lathe, milling machine 2 english wheels and a planish hammer and many hand tools) As well I have just tooled up with a composite system for vacuum producing parts. So l did leave the question a little vague so I could open a conversation.
l am planing to use a Ford 460/429 ci motor with a Porche transaxle. I was told that the MkIV body fits the larger motor. 15" wheels c/w wilwood brake system. I will making a steel buck and then on to a aluminum body. So any good spec information source is making my life easier. Canada at times can be very hard to source info and parts. Thanx
No, those were taken in the UK I think, the guy in the blue shop coat was restoring/rebuilding the cars at at the time, they were all posted on this site years ago, but its very hard to find them now that the posters details are not as informative / complete. I cant find much of this stuff anymore, glad I saved them when I did. It could be at HM though, interior of building looks similar to those a fellow kiwi took while working there.are those first 4 images photos of your chassis Jac?
