1965 FORD GT40 108 Prototype | Roads & Rides
The Ford GT 108 is an important car in the history of racing. It was the first car built by Ford Advanced Vehicles division. The first of four roadsters and the only Ford GT driven by Jim Clark.
Ford GT 108 was built for Shelby American as a prototype, test bed and promotional platform. It never saw any competition on the track but drivers such as Ken Miles, Sir Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham all had a chance behind the wheel.
Even Carroll Shelby and Henry Ford II had their turn in the car…You can almost imagine the conversation going on between those two as they drove around the track in GT 108.
