1970 Phil Henny IMSA GT Chevrolet Camaro (Chassis#124870L515127)
Phil Henny is one of those guys you’ve probably never heard of. That’s too bad, because in the second half of the 1960s he was at the center of it all.
Born in Switzerland, Henny worked as a mechanic for Shelby American on the 1967 team that brought the Dan Gurney/ A.J. Foyt Ford GT40 MK IV to the winner’s circle at Le Mans. Is there any more “center of it all” than that? In more recent times Henny has authored a number of wonderful books about the racing legends he worked alongside. His written works benefit from insights harvested from first-hand observations of the racing scene he was immersed in, and his books are definitely worth owning.
