GT40 - Original/Mk V / Re: Rarely seen pics

Bill & Honker:  Thanks for posting the GT40 & Cobra pics.  The pic of the Gurney Cobra on the Daytona banks has been my favorite for many years.  I even bought the large Road & Track print of it back in the day. 

Cool Dan Gurney Road & Track comp 289 Cobra print on ebay, item # 123992930101.  Some other stuff can be found by clicking on the ebay link showing seller's other items.  Thanks for looking.

Thanks to y'all for the quick responses - filters no longer needed.

Wanted to Buy / Girling reservoir white plastic filters wanted

Anyone have some spare white plastic filters that fit inside the fill neck of Girling reservoirs?  One of the known Girling filter part numbers is:  #64473410 (on underside of filter). There may be other part numbers, too.  Thanks!

Ask a Registrar / Re: 1967 Cobra Who Now Owns My Old Cobra CSX3275 ?

Assume this may be the same "RB" who owned an original Corvette Grand Sport?  ;)

Bump to the top... :)

Randy: Thanks for looking.  Yes, apparently the C suffix is the 6" dia.  Let me know if you have a 4" dia.

Does anyone have an original 1960's 4" diameter Autolite Spark Plug decal for sale?  Must have part # M-1626 at bottom edge.  Need asap.  Thanks! JG

Looking to buy an original mid 1960's Autolite transistorized ignition amplifier XF-172234 in good working condition.  Note, the XF amplifier is shaped differently than the OEM Galaxy amplifier - the XF-172234 unit looks similar to a Boss 302 rev limiter. Thanks!

GT40 - Original/Mk V / Jacky Ickx GT40's at Amelia Island
« on: March 25, 2019, 03:59:17 PM »
2019 Amelia Island Concours offered attendees & racing enthusiasts (especially of the GT40 persuasion) a rare opportunity: 

Six time LeMans winner(!) Jacky Ickx was re-united with a bunch of his former race cars.  Two of the cars were Gulf GT40P/1075 (1968/69 LeMans winner) and prototype Gulf GT40P/1049 (1967 Daytona class winner).  Iconic driver and race cars.

Here’s a link:

Wanted to Buy / Original Girling brass banjo fitting stamped #287

Looking for one or more original #287 Girling brass banjo fittings.  Stamped #287 on the pad near the end with 3/8"x24 internal thread.   Thanks!

HM/1047 won BEST IN CLASS @ the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours.    Kudos to Raredrive Inc and Mark & Carrie Allin (fellow SAAC members) for the expert preparation of HM/1047! 

It’s a rare opportunity to see a full race 427 Ford MKIIB that had been sitting in 50+ years of relative obscurity, come out and complete the Pebble Beach 70 mile driving tour and then idle onto the Sunday morning Pebble Beach lawn and WIN BEST IN CLASS.  The only thing that would have made it more memorable is if Dan Gurney were still alive and once again back in HM/1047’s driver’s seat for the event.

I wasn’t at Pebble Beach and don’t have any photos of my own, but here are some links from other sources:        It’s a bit difficult to find the 1047 pics on this website, but IMHO it’s worth the effort: Click on “Picture Galleries” & then click on “My photographs“, then “All my photos”, then “Le Mans Classic 2012 GT40-1047” (54 photos).

One of only two MIIB's in existence.  HM/1047 hasn't been seen by the general public in approx 50 years. Restored to 1967 LeMans specifications: 2-4V dry deck tunnelport 427, acrylic lacquer paint, electroluminescent roundel panels, unique polycarbonate carb air ductwork, Pyrotector automatic fire system, tilt front end, etc.
