The story I find most interesting is that after the Daytona Coupes accomplished their goal, nobody wanted them. They sat on a dock somewhere and almost got pushed into the ocean to get them out of the way. Now they belong to billionaires. Time is a funny thing.
i believe Ford was funding Daytona project also without overshadowing GT40 of course.. and yeah 5-10 cars from 50 years ago worth a looot now..
