Chassis: GT40P/1057
One of 31 GT40s built to street specification, this example was dispatched Shelby American for retail along with six other examples. Its first owner was Nick Nero from Kansas City, Missouri. In his and subsequent ownership, chassis 1057 was used as a daily driver for almost a decade. Crucially, it has remained as one of very few GT40s never converted to competition specification. After spending several years in storage, it was acquired by GT40 restorer Robert Ash. He restored the car while retaining original components wherever possible. The next custodian acquired the car in 1991 and like the previous owners has used it on the road extensively. After a 25-year ownership, he has now consigned the car to the 2016 RM Sotheby's Monterey Sale.
