Each hotlinked photo opens in a new, 'temporary' window; just close it to return here.

Photo above is hotlinked (same image, MUCH larger size).

CAV GT40 replica, one of the last original CAV's before John/Jean at AutoFutura took over. Stainless monocoque chassis. Assembled by Shelby dealer Mitch Hughes (no relation to me) of SC Motorsports in Mustang, Oklahoma. You also get all the new dealer info from CAV & Owners manual.

I've seen CAV GTs offered for sale for less money; if you're looking for a steal, this GT40 is not for you. Many CAVs I've seen for sale either need a MEGADOLLAR dose of expert sorting, or were outfitted with a run-of-the-mill 302 and a $200 Getrag gearbox. This car was built with premium performance and no-compromise quality in mind. Put simply: you'll immediately experience the visceral thrills of this fully-sorted drivin' machine, not spend your time resolving problems and turning wrenches.


  • car is fully sorted, ready for prime time
  • BMW LeMans Blue
  • oval rear vents
  • Ford GT side stripes on car
  • static-cling removable meatballs and decals
  • outfitted with all requisite safety upgrades--a very important consideration!
