The significantly revised car, renamed the GT-40 Mk IV, won the only two races in which it was entered -- the 1967 Sebring (Fla.) 12 Hours, and the 1967 24 Hours of…

1967 24 Hours of Daytona  Bitter from multiple sports car racing defeats at the hands of the potent Ford GT40 in 1966, Ferrari was determined to change course in 1967.
