Ford GT40 Chassis GT40P/1088

I had the opportunity to film this great ford GT40 Mk1

Geniune Ford GT40 MK1 chassis,Coming directly from the Willment family collection, Forming part of the original Ford sanction of 100 vehicles (10 prototypes and 90 production models).
In 1981, John Williment secured the rights to GT40P/1087, GT40P/1088 and GT40P/1089 form JWA for leftover chassis that he had collected. Beginning in 1996 construction finally began on these three cars which are built up from original, un-used and un-raced chassis, in fact a Gulf-spec car.
the Ford GT 40 1088 remained in the ownership of Janet Willment until being sold privately in 2006.Currently (2018) this car is raced by Patrick Hautot in Classic Endurance Racing 2018.
