Throwback Thursday-1967 #3 Ford GT40 Mk. IV

Mario Andretti and Lucien Bianchi 1967 #3 Ford GT40 Mk. IV

While I like the overall look of the GT40 Mk.IV, this is not a great color. The hood stripe is interrupted, which is visually distracting. The side design has an odd curved stripe, which is also visually distracting, even though it follows the contour of the car. Gone is the great, simple Ford GT40 stripe, and in is a series of stripes that don’t look good. Add in the bad shade of red, and you have a C+ look.

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
