You can mark my HCS Daytona Coupe SOLD!

Thanks to your site and its first-rate resources my HCS Coupe now resides in Kansas City with its new owner. All this happened in just over a week on CobraCountry! I had more than a half dozen callers in the first few days alone.

Your site's expert photography instructions and Curt's personal "Coupe-specific" photography tips paid HUGE dividends in marketing my Coupe... for both me and its lucky new owner! If I may quote Mark Twain: "I never learned anything while I was talking."

I appreciate Curt's taking the time to walk me step-by-step through how to capture great photos of my car. The Coupe is now gone but Curt's advice is here to stay. I thank him so much for his patience with me during this adventure.

Sincerely,

GT40 For Sale by ownerE.R.A. GT40 Mk1. 'Gulf pattern' Charcoal Gray primary/Guards Red secondary color and livery scheme. This is about as close as you get to those Ford drivin' machines that on Sunday, 19 June, 1966 blitzed across the finish line at LeMans in 1-2-3 fashion, way ahead of those mechanical predators from Maranello. Under the engine deck: Ford/Keith Craft 302" V8 stroked to 330 cid (dynoed) 421 hp/423 ft.lbs. torque. Decked out with AFR 165 heads, Inglese/Weber carburetion and a world-class German ZF 5-speed transaxle, no expense, no effort, no expertise was spared to render this spirited machine a worthy salute to those 1960s Enzo-vanquishing track stars.

GT40 Mk1 by Superformance. Guardsman Blue/white stripes. The BIG Picture: Click Here! Powertrain: 366 cid Dart block built by Lawrence Racing Engines employing the best internals possible and topped off with an 8-stack fuel injection; dyno results: 560 hp/7,500 rpm; the transaxle is a Quaife 5-speed fitted with a 3.77:1 final drive gearing—an extraordinary formula when you compare it to how these fabulous Forties are typically powered and geared. BIG Photo of powerplant: Click Here! The majority of these drivin’ machines are fitted with a Roush 427 stroker small-block V8 turning a maximum 6,000 rpm and delivering 500–550 horsepower, delivered through an antiquated ZF transaxle. The reasoning for that typical setup is twofold: the Roush is a very good engine, and can be purchased right off the shelf. Ditto the ZF, as it is also very robust. However, 550 horses in a 2,300 lb./±1,040 kilogram car with only 6,000 revs to redline means that you’re shifting a lot when accelerating through the gears. The Quaife is light years ahead of the old ZF in every respect, including durability. The reason most folks don’t choose it and use it is that it costs almost as much as the engine! Rolling stock: 15" “wineglass” Halibrand wheels shod with Avon radial rubber. BIG 3/4-rearview shot: Click Here! In the cockpit: Simpson 5 point harness drivers seat [stock belts come with the car], leather-wrapped steering wheel, ‘Gurney Bubble’–crowned drivers door. BIG Photo of cockpit: Click Here!

Drivetrain: this beautiful car has the desirable Roush 427SR/ 540 horsepower powerplant, and you can drive it very easily at low rpm in tow; it has an RBT ZF transmission with power-matched gear ratios for this motor. 0-60 times should be in the mid-3-second range and top speed should approach 200 mph. BIG Photo of powerplant: Click Here! It has never been raced but it has been on the Road Atlanta track a few times and handles extraordinarily well. You can get behind the wheel of this drivin' machine and drive all day, generating grins & thrills and 'thumbs up!' responses. The AC works great as does the heater. In the cockpit: Smiths instruments, adjustable pedals, and I have added extra 3/8" (±9.5mm) closed-cell neoprene for heat & noise suppression. BIG Photo of cockpit: Click Here! The Firestone tires are as new. The paint is almost as new with only a couple of small stone chips in the front, it does have the optional stone chip guard film applied to the nose. This car cost approximately $117,000 to get to this point with the motor and transaxle alone costing more than $30,000. BIG 3/4-view shot: Click Here! If you desire the-most-original–design GT40 on the market, then this Superformance is tailor-made for you. $88,000. I don't think you'll find a better buy on any ‘Continuation’ GT40 that is listed in the new SAAC World Registry. Contact Chuck at (864) 630-xxxx

Photography Tips

You may think that all you need to know to take knock-’em-dead good photos of your GT40 is 1) how to turn on your camera, 2) how to aim it in the general direction of your FabForty, and 3) how to press the shutter.

Think again.

That's the perfect formula for capturing crappy snapshots that'll prompt all
your potential buyers to flee screaming into the wilderness.

And rightly so.

Photojournalist Curt Scott's latest revision has been carefully reworked just for you! It’s a priceless investment of your time... on a single page, it’ll take you only about 30 seconds to print out and about 6 minutes to read. So read it and heed it!

Here's a hotlink to a higher-rez image of that superb GT40 engine territory shot above; photo by Tom Hughes of Southlake, Texas, who sold that Mk1 beauty on CobraCountry in 2005. If you want to capture stimulating photos of your GT40 that'll spur serious buyers to action, then print out and follow Curt's expert tips!
