Ron Bradshaw was my boss in the Ford design office during the preparation of the GT40 for the assault against Ferrari! Not to diminish his achievements, Ron is not responsible for the design of the GT40. The original GT40 was designed at the Ford US design office (Styling) and shipped to the UK for preparation for the Le Mans race. Ron and I had the responsibility of bringing the exterior and interior design to a race ready condition. That meant that we worked closely with the Ford racing group at Slough, following their guidance, and Specialised Mouldings, who were responsible for the production of the fiberglass shells. We worked directly with John Wyer, Eric Broadley and Roy Lunn. I was responsible for the first front end used on the first Le Mans cars that was aerodynamically a disaster - Ron worked with later aerodynamic guidance and was responsible for the subsequent front ends, along with the tail spoiler. We both worked on the interior and Ron was primarily responsible for the ventilated seats that were made by Harold Radford. As a side note, I designed the steering wheel and Ron the center medallion. When I took the designs and showed them to Eric Broadley, he insisted they were both too bulky and weighty and insisted I go back and redesign them taking as much weight out as possible, which I did! Quite a learning curve! I still have one of the original flat black center medallions as redesigned and used on the first Le Mans cars!
