is offering a newly-completed & one-of-a-kind Superformance GT40:

Pathfinder '1966' GT40P/2024 Mk IIB


That's right, a Mk IIB! This is the first ever Safir-licensed Mk IIB continuation GT40, featuring many accurate details. The Mk IIB was the final version of the Ford-sponsored GT40s, and it represented the acme of track-proven refinements. As an example, the Mk IIB dashboard - different from every other Mk I and Mk II - was so successful that it was carried over to the Mk IV 'J' cars at Le Mans.

Over six-months of effort has gone into P/2024's Mk IIB transformation, including extensive collaboration with Lee Holman. This car features original GT40 components (ranging from a Tennant Panels interior console to an original Lucas 608 mirror), Holman Moody engine and suspension upgrades, Olthoff Racing updates, and dozens of special modifications that add to this car's authenticity.

It features a titanium-silver & black stripe paint scheme with several Le Mans-inspired elements, including red Holman Moody front fender 'eyebrows'; a low-reflection front hood area; and, correct roundels, fire marshal, and sponsor decals. It is delivered in left-hand drive for safe streetability and domination at any track-day event. GT40 P/2024 is absolutely stunning - and unique! You will not find another GT40 like this anywhere. The list of Pathfinder components and modifications include:
  • FAV/Holman Moody Mk IIB dash: Spectacular and similar to the Mk IV 'J' cars
  • 351/427 engine supplied with a street cam creating 560± bhp on pump gas - scary fast and perhaps the most awesome sounding GT40 we've ever heard!
  • Holman Moody race cam provided for track use
  • Weber-like EFI and Pathfinder-spec custom tall-trumpet air intakes with Pathfinder-developed 'tennis ball' period screen filters
  • Pathfinder-built original GT40-style seats using period-correct parachute-type cloth and original brass grommets
  • Mk IIB dash with original Holman Moody toggle plate assembly
  • FIA-approved competition fire suppression system
  • Original Boeing 707-style single blade windshield wiper arm
  • FIA-approved competition five-point seat belts
  • FAV/KarKraft-style Mk IIB steering wheel with proper leather-cushioned safety hub
  • Le Mans plexiglas front hood driver's side bug-shield
  • Extremely low and unique Safir GT40 Spares-issued continuation chassis number P/2024
  • Front canard wings
  • Original aluminum radiator well airflow divider
  • Original helicopter-spec plexiglas air vents - two per door (super effective, too!)
  • Front deck lid twin radiator exhaust-flow strakes
  • Front and rear Le Mans-style competition brake ducts
  • FIA-approved power disconnect
  • Gurney wicker bill spoiler
  • Gurney driver's side helmet bubble
  • Original Mk IIB 'C' side-stripes (later carried over to the successor Mk IV 'J' cars)
  • Unique high-performance original GT40-style down-turn header system in white powder coat
  • Custom 5-inch diameter exhaust pipes
  • Air conditioning with hidden controls in driver's door panel
  • ZF 5-speed transaxle
  • Gas strut for rear deck lid
  • Reproduction 'Ford Advanced Vehicles' chassis plate (correct brass-colored) stamped 'GT40P/2024' affixed to passenger-side bulkhead as on original Mk IIB
  • Authentic interior door trim
  • FIA fender wheel extension 'wing'
  • Authentic leather door pulls and door opening limiters
  • FIA-approved tow loops fore and aft
  • Le Mans type jack stands fore and aft in high-visibility colors
  • Ford-marked dual roundel number and 'competitor identifier decal' lights
  • Gold Hallibrand type wheels with blue (right) and red (left) anodized spinners
  • Avon race/street DOT tires: 295/50 rear and 215/65 front
  • Olthoff Racing shift-kit upgrade
  • Street legal and registered in Florida as a 1966 'antique vehicle'
  • And many more additional items.
Details on this car include many tiny but significant features relating to authenticity, such as the replacement of the standard SPF black screws with original-type stainless screws for the side plexiglass windows. And there are several items that have yet to be installed and are not shown in the photos, including a 1966 Abbey Panels center console with an integrated shifter base!

This is also an especially collectable GT40 for another reason: It was originally Superformance SPG001B - the first continuation GT40 built and fully recognized as such by Safir GT40 Spares and the GT40 Register! It has just been titled for the first time (Florida) and has no street or track miles. Here are a few photos:

the final, best, and rarest dashboard used on the factory GT40 race cars.
Note the authentic parachute-cloth GT40 racing seats built by Pathfinder.

This is the Le Mans bug screen that was developed by Holman Moody to reduce bug
splatter on the Mulsanne Straight. Behind it you see the Boeing-style windshield wiper
arm and the period-correct chrome washer nozzle - all three developed by Pathfinder.

They work extremely well at ventilating the cockpit.
Also shown are the replacement and correct stainless screws attaching the plexiglas windows. Below you will see the proper dual roundel lights as used on the Mk IIB.

Pathfinder Motorsports is all about building the most accurate, competitive, street or race-eligible GT40s available for a fraction of the price of a Gelscoe car. Our race cars are competing in Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, France, Belgium, New Zealand, and the US - including approval by the FIA and the issuance of the coveted Historical Technical Passport (HTP)!

It was because of their highly-accurate chassis that we selected Superformance to provide us with their licensed continuation rollers, and also why we have an exclusive partnership with Holman & Moody - one of Ford's original GT40 racing teams - to help us engineer highly authentic GT40s for the track and street.

The standard Superformance GT40 rollers currently have a one-year wait list; with assembly and modifications a new buyer is looking at more than 12-months for delivery. This car is available today with delivery worldwide. Details subject to change without notice. Price: US$182,000.

We are also a full-service Superformance dealer and the designers of the GT40/R. Call us to talk about a roller or fully-assembled race- or road-ready GT40, Cobra, Daytona coupe, or Corvette Grand Sport.

Re: GT40P/2024 Mk IIB by Pathfinder/SPF - FOR SALE

Hi Alan,

Great speaking with you earlier today about those tempermental Weber carbs we so love. As I said this car is stunning and simply breathtakig to look at. Currently there are two GT 40's For Sale on the forum....your MK II and a SPF MK I GTR in early Gulf Colors. If both were purchased a person would have a garage anyone would be envious of. What would be interesting (for me anyway) would be the dilemma in chosing between being able to buy both GT40's offered or buying 1 Gelscoe car for roughly the same price or maybe more. It would be hard (for me anyway) NOT to go for the two for the price of one deal! I don't see how you could wrong.

Good Luck with the sale. Its a true work of art.

Now, where's my lotto ticket money!

As soon as everything is dialed in to our satisfaction, you will see the details posted here first.

Thanks to everyone who provided such incredible encouragement in our MkIIB concept; it was a long but rewarding process. And you can rest assured that our next MkIIB will be equally awesome!
