General description :
Heron GT MK4 Sports Racing Car Designed by Ross Baker built by Ross Baker, Bob Gee and Chris Cooke in 1967.
The Heron GT MK4 was a replica of the Ford GT40 MK4 Sports Racing car.
Following the success of the Ford GT40 at Le Mans in 1967 Bob Gee and Ross Baker decided to team up and build this beautiful replica of the car to race the following season.
They spent many hours reading and researching all they could to collect the information and specification to build the car they wanted.
They decided to use a 327 ci Chevrolet Corvette motor, but the gearbox was a problem! With a lot of deliberation they decided to design and build there own transmission unit, it all started with a Ford Zephyr MK4 gears, a Ford V8 crown wheel and pinion with Ford Zephyr output shafts, Howard rotary hoe quick change gears and a Mini oil pump to pressure feed the oil to the gears.
