Revs Institute recently unveiled its latest exhibition, “Pony Pedigree,” an exploration of the legacy of the Ford GT40 and its journey to triumph at Le Mans. The exhibition’s highlight is the exceptional 1967 Ford GT40 Mark III (main image), one of the rarest models, with only seven ever constructed. On loan from the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Collection at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California, this automotive marvel will be on display at Revs Institute through July 2024.
“Pony Pedigree” offers a unique narrative, tracing the evolution from the Mustang I concept to the groundbreaking design of the GT40. This exhibition provides the opportunity to witness the GT40’s development through its different generations: the Mk I and Mk II-B, both part of Miles Collier Collections housed at Revs Institute, alongside the distinguished Mk III.
“Hosting three generations of the GT40, including the rare 1967 Mark III, in one exhibition is a way to give our visitors both a truly special experience and a deeper understanding of Ford’s road to victory at Le Mans,” says Lauren Goodman, Supervising Producer of Media and Exhibitions at Revs Institute. The GT40 represents a remarkable chapter in automotive excellence and historical significance. Enthusiasts and newcomers are encouraged to explore this unique display and uncover the rich narratives behind these legendary vehicles.
The “Pony Pedigree” exhibition is not just about showcasing these remarkable cars; it is a deep dive into the ingenuity and ambition that drove Ford to international racing success. “We are thrilled to bring this story to life, highlighting the convergence of groundbreaking design and technological advancements with the compelling narrative behind each model,” said Scott George, Curator of Collections, Revs Institute Inc.
