Door top capping strips

 

 

We have now introduced a more accurate version of the door top capping strips which were fitted to original GT40's in order to prevent door top lift at high speed due to negative pressure.
This new version is made to the original Ford Advanced Vehicle factory drawings from 1964 to ensure a better fit without scratching the paint on the door tops.
They are manufactured in GRP and attached to the door rebate using self tappers behind the door seals.

Gulf front wheel spinner

 

 

A new version of the Knock on wheel spinner is now available. It features the shorter more star shaped ears and a reduced ear angle to reduce ear stick out on the front wheels. These were used on the front of Gulf cars with a regular spinner used on the rear but I have seen some cars that use this spinner front and rear. The red spinner is the casting pattern and the second picture shows it side by side with the regular spinner casting pattern. We also have wheel nuts available which are 75 mm AF.

 

 

BF Goodrich Tyres

 

 

BF Goodrich tyres are now available again in 15” diameter in the UK through Tornado. We have  the  full range available for GT40 and Cobra replica cars. These tyres offer a more economical alternative to the Avon CR6ZZ tyres.

 

 

 

Gulf front indicators

 

 

Flush mount front indicators are now available in glass as fitted to the original Gulf GT40 racing cars like 1075.
They require a 52 mm diameter hole to be cut in the body work and they are supplied complete with a fitting kit and all fixings. They use a 12v bulb as original and not LEDs like modern alternatives.

 

 

Replica Walnut Gear knob

 

 

We have now introduced a new wooden GT40 gear knob which is made to the original Ford Advanced Vehicle drawings dated 09/11/64.
This was used on all original GT40 cars.

Gulf replica steering wheel

 

 

A Gulf replica chassis 1075 steering wheel is now available.
It is available in both 15” as original and 13” for more thigh/leg space.
The spokes have no holes or slots and the boss is finished in a satin black with plated fixings as original. The wheel rim is covered in Black Leather. The spokes do not have a makers name engraved into them as some replica steering wheels do which is not original. A Ford GT emblem can be fitted into the boss if required but this was not present on 1075.

We are now able to supply the lower headlight units as used on the Gulf racing cars like 1075. They feature both main and dip beams and a suitable mounting kit will be available in the near future. They are supplied in pairs complete with bulbs and fixings.

 

 

Original Front Indicators

 

 

We have now introduced original GT40 front indicators. These feature a flat glass front lens instead of the peaked plastic front lens which is usually fitted to all replicas. They are supplied in pairs complete with bulbs and fixings.

 

 

 

MK2 Front Wing Humps

 

 

These GRP mouldings are bonded onto the tops of the wings on the MK1 front body section to convert it into a MK2 body section.
 
When the original MK2 GT40 was run on the banked track at Daytona the G force generated on the corners caused the front tyres to rub through the tops of the front wings on the front body section.
To begin with holes were cut in the tops of the wings to prevent the tyres  rubbing and then humps were added later for improved airflow.
The cost of a pair is £395 + VAT.

 

 

 

Hartwell Replica Latches

 

 

These are replicas of the Hartwell latches used on the original GT40 cars to secure the front and rear body sections.
 
We did track down the original latches from the original manufacturer but the cost was £2700 per latch as they were used as an engine cowl latch on an Aircraft and carried the required certification to be used as such.
The replica  Hartwell Latches are manufactured by Tornado Sports Cars and are supplied complete with all fixings and mounting plates.
The cost for a car set of 4 is £550 + VAT.

 

 

MK2 GT40 roof vent
