The Cancer Journeys Foundation Ford GT40 Program
We owe a special thanks to Mr. Michael Zarabi for donating this car to the Foundation. IRS regulations require that we use donated vehicles like this to support our non-profit objectives. For the Cancer Journeys Foundation, this means supporting our prostate cancer awareness programs and fundraising for our cancer survivor support programs.
Thanks to the generous donated support by David Alison and the team at Just Drive, LLC in Orange, California, we are restoring the car to the specifications of the original 1966 Ford GT40 (read the Wikipedia article here – Ford GT40 history).
How The Cancer Journeys Foundation will Campaign the CJF Ford GT40

- Available for static display
- Donors – level to be determined – will be able to drive the car
- Fashion and advertising shoots
- Publicity events at Ford Motor Company dealership
Cancer Journeys Foundation Ford GT40 Replica Car Rebuild Journal…
Paint is completed. The next step is new plexiglass headlight covers and some engine work. Our target completion date is July 2019.
Why we are so excited about our Ford GT40 Replica Car!
The Ford GT40 is automotive history. If you’re a car enthusiast, you’ve certainly read about the GT40. Now, for the first time, people will have the opportunity to feel what it was like for Dan Gurney and A. J. Foyt to win the 24 hours of Le Mans in a Ford GT40.
Check out the video below that tells the story of Ford’s 1966 Le Mans campaign. Then put your name on our waiting list to take your own turn behind the wheel of a 1967 Ford GT40.

Like to Drive Our GT40 Replica Car?
Our rebuild should be completed in July 2019. The car will be kept in the Los Angeles area. We’re working on a program to let donors drive the car and get a feel for what it was like driving this machine in the 1960s at Le Mans.
We’re working on a program to have the car periodically at the Exotics Racing facility at the Autoclub Speedway in Fontana, California.
