Fine Old Ford Film

The "photo finish" staged by Ford at LeMans in 1966.

Thanks to Mac's Motor City Garage via the Midwest Council of Sports Car Clubs FaceBook page for the link to this film:

I recall the hype around Ford's "computer controlled" dyno testing of the 7-liter Mark II engine at the time: supposedly the engine ran trouble-free for 48 hours on a program that replicated a lap at LeMans. And, unlike 1964 and 1965, the GT 40's had reliable engines.
