1967 Ford GT MK IV #1 Red LeMans Winner 1:18
The original car (of which this die cast is based) was built to win the world's most important sports car race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Driven by American legends Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, it accomplished its goal in 1967, beating the second-place Ferrari by 32 miles at a record-breaking average speed of 135.48 miles per hour. The engine was based on Ford's stock car racing engine and proved highly reliable. In the 1960s Ford Motor Company made the most massive sports car racing effort ever seen in America, winning the Le Mans race in 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969. This die cast is extraordinary in its likeness to the original that is part of the collection of automobiles at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.
