Hello Marc; "Driven Twice in the last 5 years"...that's analogous to having a Super Model as a girlfriend & ONLY having SEX TWICE in 5 years!!!
I wonder what kind of racing provenance the GT40 has?!, Especially considers the Gulf paint scheme if in fact the Gulf paint scheme is original.
Is your friend per chance a lake front home owner on the Bodensee?
Please if you can take MANY photos of the GT40, especially of the rear clam shell open & the engine photographed.
Being a 1966 GT40 MKII is the engine the 7 litre version?
The 7 Litre being so DOMINATE it caused engine displacement rule changes in subsequent years.
All I can say is "WOW"!!!...the pinnacle of GT40s!!!...A 1966 GT40 MKII 7.0 Litre engine painted in the Famous Gulf paint scheme!!!
Appreciate Marc your indulgence to my myriad of questions as for myself after the 1955 Alloy Bodied Mercedes Gullwing being my "1" on my LUSTFUL Super Cars Wish List, the 1966 GT40 MKII 7.0 Litre engine Gulf paint scheme being number 2...Mark
