GT Mark II

Lee Holman, President of Holman Automotive, Inc. and Holman Moody Inc., is producing new 1966
specification GT Mark II LeMans race cars. These cars are built at the Holman shops in Charlotte, NC using the original Ford GT Mark II blueprints, specifications, and base chassis that Holman Moody used to build their GT Mark IIs.

Ever since the Ford GT Mark II won LeMans more than 30 years ago, Holman Moody has been asked if an original Mark II could be remanufactured. Due to high tooling costs for such a small number of cars, Holman Moody only repaired or restored the few existing Mark IIs. Now, with the interest in vintage racing at an all time high and the number of inquires growing substantially, Lee Holman and a number of the original Ford LeMans team members decided to build a limited production of authentic racing LeMans Mark IIs.

These cars will have the advantage of the Holman Moody teams' vast racing experience, blueprints, race reports, and paper work from the Ford LeMans program. The Holman cars will be built just as they were raced, using original Mark II body molds, chassis from original tooling, Kar Kraft style transaxle, new 427 Ford dry sump engines, and a number of the original spare parts.
The parts that make this a true Mark II will all be just as raced so the owner will not only have the sound and the look, but also the feel of a true LeMans racing machine. Holman Automotive will offer the car as a Mark II A or Mark II B.


One of the most important aspects of this project is the people that Mr. Holman has pulled together to build these new Mark II race cars. These are the workers that helped Ford build and race the original LeMans GT, Mark IIs, and Mark IVs. They will assure that these new Mark IIs will be true to original design and as great as the Mark IIs that made history.

Specifications


Chassis    
  Construction Pressed steel monocoque made to the original Mark I GT drawings. Modified to Mark II specifications at the Holman Shop by Jimmy Tucker and Jim Rose.
