    Hello and Welcome Aboard TrevS

    Sorry to be tedious but pics are a must and an E39 touring I'm sure will fit the bill

    Thanks for the interest guys. I have been working on my GT40 for nearly a year now and started the project with no previous experience in car building or mechanicals.

    So far I've fabricated all the aluminium panels for the chassis, fitted the fuel tanks, started work on the cooling pipes and just about ready to start work on the suspension and the brakes.

    It doesn't look like much from the picture but it's taken MANY hours of hard work to get to where the car currently is



    If anyone is interested in seeing more pics and info I keep a build log on a facebook page I setup here:

    Also the questions I get asked most are what colour are you going to paint it and what engine will be in the car?

    The aim is to fit a Ford small block V8 347 Stroker. That means a 5.7litre engine with approx 420bhp.

    As for the colour I am going for Linden green, a pale green. It's a bit different from the normal gulf colours but I think it's the perfect vintage colour.

    One day:
