About this creation
*History Lesson*

As Many racing fans know the Ford GT40 holds quite an amazing chapter in Le Mans history. starting in 1966 the GT40 had come out of its development years and was primed to dominate the endurance racing scene. the MKII would win 24 hours of Daytona along with 2nd and 3rd. Sebring was another 1, 2, 3 finish for the Ford cars with the X-1 Roadster taking the over all. at Le Mans of 1966 the GT40 was running 1, and 2 late in the race and in an attempt to keep both Drivers happy with the result Ford tried to arrange a tie. Driver Ken Miles was however not satisfied with a tie, and in protest to Ford slowed his car in the final straight still taking second but removing what could have been an amazing side by side finish. 1967 was equally as successful with the MKVI taking Le Mans. in 1968 a rule change was applied that limited engine size and eliminated the MKII, MKIII and MKIV, leaving the older MKI cars still eligible. this change in rules left the MKI in great position for the season and lead to a Championship for Makes victory for Ford. the following year would be the end of the GT40s reign being almost 6 years older than its competitors. in a very close battle with Porsche's 908 the Ford GT would win but by mere seconds unlike previous years. the most remarkable detail of the 68, and 69 victories is that it was achieved by the exact same car - the legendary GT40P/1075. this to date is the only Car to win the 24hours of Le Mans twice.

*end of history lesson*

I've spent quite a lot of time on this on,. with the history of the car, and my long standing appreciation of the car i had to get it right. My model is 16 studs long and only 3 bricks 2 plates tall. so, without further ado here is my LEGO 1966 Ford GT40 MKI (road car).







*Update: revised headlights to better match those found on the actual car*

Quoting Angelo Samson Very nice moc in this scale! I don't usually see the snot style for the front of small scale car mocs. If I build using that style I'll certainly mention you. Nice color scheme too. Great build. Hope this gets more views. From which set did you get the wheels?
Thanks, this was posted 2 months ago on Eurobricks and Flickr, just forgot to add it here, so I imagine its been seen a lot already. as for the black rims they are only on set 60053: Race Car (city set) there are light grey ones in a few other sets but I'm not sure which at the moment.
