 1966 Le Mans Ford GT40

The Ford GT40 is a high performance British-American sports car and winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans four times in a row, from 1966 to 1969 (1966 being the Mk II, 1967 the Mk IV, and 1968-1969 the oldest chassis design, the Mk I). With this car Ford became in 1966 the first and so far the only American constructor to win overall at Le Mans. In addition to that, the Mk IV became in 1967 so far the only racecar built entirely in the United States to win overall at Le Mans, whilst in the previous year Ford won with a British-built chassis and only an engine came from America.
