Chassis: GT40P/1076
Chassis 1076 was the first all new chassis used by the JW Automotive Gulf team in 1968. It was first raced at Le Mans where it retired with clutch issues after starting ninth. Not used again that season, it was brought out for the long distance races in 1969. After retiring from the Daytona 24 Hours and the Sebring 12 Hours, it finally reached the finish where it placed third, four laps behind the winning sister car. It was retired from contemporary racing and was sold to the United States. Still in American hands, it is seen here at the 2009 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, where former JW Automotive driver David Hobbs was honoured.
