Because of rule changes in 1968, the 427 cubic inch engine used in the Mk4 was not allowed. JW Automotive decided to keep racing anyway and started new development on the Mk1 cars.

In the first two races of the 1968 season, Daytona and Sebring, the Gulf-sponsored Mk1 cars did not finish any races, but a Mk1 Gulf did qualify for pole at Daytona, proving that the Mk1 cars were still competitive. The Mk1 Gulf first scored a victory at the BOAC 500 in England, and later won the Monza 1000 Kilometers and Spa 1000 Kilometers. The winning streak continued when the Mk1 Gulf gave Ford its third straight victory at the 1968 LeMans. Pedro Rodriguez and Lucien Bianchi were the winning drivers.

1969 proved to be another winning year for the GT40, with Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver driving a Mk1 Gulf to victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Later that year, the Mk1 Gulf gave Ford its historic fourth straight victory at LeMans. Driven by Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver, the Mk1 Gulf won the closest LeMans victory in history, beating a Porsche 908 by less than 150 yards.

After 1969, Ford ended its factory support of racing and the GT40 winning streak ended.
