I knew Dennis had it, he's a former LA County fireman. I thought he'd get around to restoring it. Jay Cushman , a vendor of GT40 genuine parts, helped him get it out of the garage and spiff it up after several decades but it still looked rough (though not rusty). It had a Mk.Ii rear body panel, supposedly put on last four, is that possible? Did they run out of Mk.I clamshells?
also does it have a racing history?
It was yellow and black with a black painted bonnet (hood in American lingo)
I know it said Salt Walther on the side but that doesn't mean he ever got it out to the track. It actually belonged to his father. I think Salt died in jail (drug dealing). Dennis bought it when Salt was laid up in the hospital after a big crash.
The buying price was never mentioned,
but since one of the first GT40s recently sold at auction for over $4 million, you know it has to be in the millions of dollars. Of course that early GT40 had a racing history and was Shelby's development car so I could see that price.
Thanks for any info--now is that the LAST GT40 still hidden, or should we hopefuls keep looking?
