The Ford That Beat Ferrari, author signed
1985 1st edition, published by Kimberley's hand signed by authors John Allen & Gordon Jones - a rare signed copy of the desireable original in very good condition.
When Ford's attempt to buy Ferrari fell through, the US car giant embarked on a programme to beat the famous Italian marque at the world's most prestigious race, the Le Mans 24 hours. It was quite a battle. Ford's challenger was the GT40, which placed 1-2-3 at Le Mans in 1966 and won the next three consecutive years. This classic book about the GT40 - fastest sports racing car of its day - has been re-issued, redesigned, expanded and updated to meet pent-up demand that has pushed the value of the original 1985 edition to over £400.
