Default Ford GT Mark II

I found a Ford press release for this car dated in 1966, it has a write up/pictures of the car with specs and driver biographies. has anyone seen one of these? If there is any interest I will post a few pictures.

Having just seen Ford vs Ferrari, I'd like to see that. Just to compare what was said then.

I'm not much for movies, but I liked that one.

Still looking forward to seeing movie. Always interested in anything Ford. I remember watching a video of them racing somewhere years ago, it rained so hard the cockpits were full of water up to the door sills. The car and driver kept going. Would sure like to find that clip again.

I'd like to see it. Thanks for telling us about it. The movie really was outstanding and - I'm guessing - a real boon to the old car hobby and Ford collectors.

Thanks for posting. I learned a couple of interesting things: Jackie Stewart was once a Ford driver, and went by "Jack."



Also, the 289 Ford GT had a 37 gallon tank! I could use one of those!
