2004 CAV GT Replica Ford GT40Posted by WindingRoad about 2 months, 1 week ago
This 2004 CAV GT is a tribute to the 1965 Ford GT40 that was built as a kit by Cape Advanced Vehicles in South Africa and purchased by the seller four years ago from Legendary Motorcar in Toronto. This right-hand drive example is powered by a 348ci Ford stroker V8 mated to a ZF 5-speed gearbox and finished in period Gulf livery. The seller has driven it approximately 2,000 miles over his ownership and placed second in class at the 2015 Targa Newfoundland. The car reportedly received a fluid change in spring 2018 and is offered with build records and a clean Ontario title in the seller’s name.
According to the seller, the fiberglass front bodywork was replaced along with the radiator and support after suffering damage at the 2015 Targa Newfoundland. The car went on to finish second in class at the event.
The interior is fitted with a dash arrangement, seats, and steering wheel resembling those of the Mk1 GT40 but was reportedly designed with more spacious interior dimensions. Sparse amenities include bolstered leather bucket seats finished with grid-patterned grommets and featuring 5-point safety harnesses. A fire suppression system has also been fitted. No carpeting, air conditioning system, or other creature comforts are included. Smiths gauges include a 220-mph speedometer with a digital odometer that reportedly shows 5k miles.
The 348ci Ford stroker V8 features a FAST electronic fuel injection system capped with a set of velocity stacks and powers the rear wheels through a ZF 5-speed gearbox. Other highlights include Gurney Weslake rocker covers, braided steel fuel lines with AN fittings, and 4-into-1 headers exiting directly out the rear clamshell. The engine received a fluid change in spring 2018 per the seller.
The identification plate is a replica of those on the original UK-built cars and lists the CAV chassis number. Records from the car’s build are included in the sale.
