A Quick History of the Ford GT:
It's a story you know well—how Henry Ford II tried to buy Ferrari and was rebuffed by Il Commendatore. Hank the Deuce got mad, and then he decided to get even. A rivalry with Enzo was born, and the GT program to topple him at Le Mans ensued.
It took a couple of years of failure, but the Ford GT40 finally hit paydirt in '66...and again in '67, '68. and '69. A performance legend was born, along with a story that never stops giving enthusiasts goosebumps.'
