No, it was a fastback.

The Ford GT is of course the real deal. However the GT40 is not. The original GT40 did not have marker lights on the rear quarter panels.

I'm not seeing a GT40 in that garage. All I see is a metric shit ton of similar Mustangs, some old things I don't feel like sorting out, a Fezza F430 and a Ford GT parked behind it. I don't see a 60's GT40 in these pics, am I just missing it?

As Red Bread said, I'm not sure what you're looking at. It's a Ford GT in all the pics (different angles), I don't see a GT40 in any of them...

My mistake. Someone commented that this was a GT40.

It is annoying that Ford wasn't able to name the modern one the GT40 (or GT44 as it was really 4 inches taller) because some idiot had trademarked the name and wanted a billion dollars to license it back to Ford.
