The presentation covered the history of Kar-Kraft and featured three individuals with intimate knowledge of the company’s history and legacy: Charles Henry, Mike Teske, and Karl Kainhofer.;Kar-Kraft was an independent contractor, located just minutes from Ford headquarters, and was assigned the contract to construct and develop two of the most dominant racecars of the 1960s: the Ford GT40 Mk II and Mk IV, cars that won Le Mans in 1966 and 1967. Charles Henry, Mike Teske, and Karl Kainhofer recounted their involvement with Kar-Kraft through those years. Helping to illustrate their presentations were the museum’s Ford GT40 Mk II and Mk IV, both of which competed at Le Mans, and an additional special guest, a 1967 Ford GT40 Mk IV “J-Car”. Charles Henry, Mike Teske, and Karl Kainhofer signed copies of Charles Henry’s Kar-Kraft book after the lecture.
