This Mark II Roadster GT 40/P 202 is now ready to be raced.
This unique car could be raced at all of the American sports car events
or it can be approved for FIA events in Europe.
Shown as part of the Ford display at the Laguna Seca events at the 2018 historic races
GT40/P 202 was built as a copy of the original X-1 Roadster that won Sebring in 1966
The X-1 chassis had been modified by Bruce McLaren's company
changing the fuel cell pods over to aluminum.
The joints bonding the aluminum to the steel were breaking on the rough Sebring track.
That is why the original X-1 chassis was scraped after the race.
We took the liberty of correcting the many problems built into the original X-1.
We did not replace the steel fuel cell pods with aluminum.
The two fuels cells for GT 40/P/ 202 are installed in the standard steel GT 40 side pods.
The transaxle is the standard Mark II design T-44 not the automatic.
We formed a steel bar around the windshield.
We also installed a hidden roll bar in the "B" column for safety.
The steering wheel is removable and a fire system was added.
