The mythical Ford GT-40 has been coveted by Ford enthusiasts since the day it appeared on the scene. This magnificent automobile was the idea of Henry Ford II, to bring attention to the high performance vehicles that Ford was capable of producing. He started the Ford Advanced Vehicles Division in Slough, England to break Ferrari’s dominance of road racing. This high performance sports car emerged as the primary adversary of Ferrari. The most historic event was the 24 Hours of LeMans in June, 1966. In that race, Ford not only prevented Ferrari from winning a sixth straight title, but also finished one, two, and three. In 1966, the GT-40 Mark 3 was introduced, which was a street version of the race cars. Years later, the GT-40 was repackaged and re-released as the Ford GT, on an extremely limited basis.

Auctions America is delighted to announce it will lift the gavel on the unique and historically important 1964½ Ford Mustang III Factory Prototype, affectionately known as the “Shorty” Mustang, when its highly anticipated Fort Lauderdale sale returns to South Florida, March 27-29, 2015.
Recognized by Ford Motor Company as an original factory prototype, the Mustang III was a one-of-a-kind design study built at Ford’s request by the famed Dearborn Steel Tubing Company. The car began with a prototype Mustang chassis, shortened by 16 inches and outfitted with a custom-built 302-cubic-inch V-8 with three dual-barrel carburetors. The special two-passenger fastback coupe body was penned by freelance designer, Vince Gardner, well-known for his custom creations during the 1950s and 60s.
Ford’s award-winning EcoBoost® engine lineup not only has great EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings, it is also becoming a favorite family of engines in the performance tuning community.
From the infancy of the automobile, tinkerers have always chased more power by removing original components and replacing them with expensive aftermarket parts. This can lead to added performance, but at a cost to fuel efficiency, durability or driving comfort most owners would never accept.
