In mid-July, another auction will be held, which put up an exclusive 1965 Ford GT. This specimen participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The car is built on the GT/109 platform and is equipped with a 4.7-liter V8 engine and a five-speed ZF transmission. Maurice Trintignant and Guy Ligier were unable to win the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans because of the failure of this V8 engine on the 11th lap.

The history of the auctioned vehicle does not end with participation in the race. In 1986, it was purchased by Hollywood stuntman Dean Jeffries.

After his death, his son sold the unique sports car to Dana Mecum, who is the founder of the Mecum auction. It was Mecum who commissioned the complete restoration of the roadster. As a result, the Ford GT began to look the same as before the iconic race.

It is interesting that Mecum has already tried to sell the same Ford GT in 2018, but failed to get the desired amount of money. Now, the roadster is again put up for sale. Mecum hopes to get at least $7.5-10 million for it.
