In its fourth chapter, the Legend of Le Mans series, presented by RK Motors Charlotte, takes an in-depth look at the work involved in such a restoration. From historical accuracy, to sourcing the correct hardware, a tremendous amount of work goes in to ensuring the restoration of such a legend is indeed true to form.
We’re back once again, this time with Chapter 3. This week, the RK Motors Charlotte and Rare Drive Inc team offer a bit of history about the ’66 Le Mans winning Ford GT40 and the technology behind it. After all, winning doesn’t come easy…
Last week, we began our journey with RK Motors Charlotte and the Rare Drive team as they began the process of restoring the 1966 Le Mans winning Ford GT40. This week, we bring you chapter two. Join the team as they disassemble the legendary car in a meticulous manner. Their goal, to restore the car using the original parts that crossed the finish line in 1966, comes with a number of hurdles.
More than a year ago, the team at Rare Drive Inc began a tremendous undertaking: to unearth the past and restore the glory of the 1966 Le Mans winning Ford GT40, Chassis #P1046. Documented wonderfully in a set of five videos thus far, StanceWorks is excited to take you through the journey over the next five weeks. Stay tuned on Thursdays as we join the Rare Drive team in their efforts to return a legend to its former prestige and glory.
