Among the opening salvos of the Ford-vs-Ferrari war of the 1960s was the 1965 Daytona Continental 2000-kilometer race, which saw Shelby American's fleet of GT40s and Cobra Daytonas trounce the field (including a battery of NART-entered Ferrari prototypes) to take the top four places overall. Among Shelby's arsenal was the GT40 driven to a sterling third place finish by Bob Bondurant and Richie Ginther, chassis number GT/104. This beautiful machine is now available as a highly detailed, limited edition 1:43-scale resin replica by Spark. Finished in Shelby's classic white-on-blue paint scheme, the #72 GT40 by Spark is accurate in every regard, from its finely sculpted Halibrand wheels to its detailed cockpit. Ford Performance enthusiasts seeking to build a complete collection of significant GT40 models should not miss this compelling new release from Spark.
