    This was just posted on a Bronco site without info. Someone thought it might be the iconic ‘66 LeMans winner and looks to be Chris Amon and maybe Bruce McLaren in the back seat

    Anyone know anything else?

    That is way cool! GT40 is sick, little did they know how much that would be worth.

    The GT40 or the Bronco?

    Found this, chassis 1067 though not 1046: Priceless Ford GT40 found buried in junk-filled garage

    Seth at Gateway Broncos thinks he may know about the Bronco. Said the 2nd owner bought it from Carroll Shelby's ranch in 1977. This could be the Shelby Bronco though:

    Even has the registration from 1967. He's still researching this

    Tom shaugnessy owns THE GT40 p1046 along with 3 or 4 other originals and he also owns multiple porsche 917k and others, his son johnny shaugnessy has an instagram account and its mind blowing. They have a better collection than the Peterson

    Did Rob Kauffman sell it again? He bought it for $22M in 2014. Just posted this photo
