Thinking of selling CAV GT40

I’ve had CAV #041 almost a year now. I’ve had a lot of fun with the car but in the Northwest it’s got the same season as a boat (April-September). I’d like to get back to an “all season” sports car, something with modern safety features so the wife will ride in it.

since acquiring it from a bring a trailer auction. It has gone through a very thorough make safe and correct all systems at J&L fabrication in Puyallup, Wa. Major updates include: new safety fuel cells, updated air conditioning system, new AVON cr6zz tires.

The engine is a 427 Windsor, all aluminum Ford performance block, aluminum heads, stainless Jessel shaft rockers, hydraulic roller cam. Runs on 91 octane with Torco octane boost as it’s 11/1 compression.

the car is turn key ready to drive now. I’ll post all work orders I’ve had done since in my care in the next couple days.

I don’t need to sell it or in a hurry. Minimum sale price is $145,000. I will be advertising it in other places.

Really nice looking car! I am not that familiar with the CAV GT40 (I have a Superformance GT40 MKII), but believe it still uses the ZF transmission. If so, does the car have an external clutch slave cylinder or an internal hydraulic throwout bearing?

Thanks!

I’m getting ready to go to my first Formula 1 race Thursday and I’ll try to get everything up before I head out for a week.

Both sets of wheels go with the car, it is a ZF 5 speed.

Where in Washington are you and the GT40 located? I thought I've read about how spacious the CAV interior is and that drivers can be comfortable driving them even if they are 6'5" tall or so. Yet yours has a Gurney Bubble, so how tall are you? Thank you in advance.

I'm in the Sumner/Lake Tapps area. I'm 5'7.
 
I maybe able to help you in your quest to find the leak I owne a refrigeration company. Rod
Hey Rod, that is very kind. I have added dye but not much luck at it showing. I did find a potential leak on one of the schrader valves so I replaced both, but still having an issue. I think the o-rings is a good idea from Pat (Veek). I will give that a shot next. I have had to replace one of the pipes before So I bought a hydraulic crimp along with gauges. I am getting good at re-charging!
