My fav Ford of all time! Saw it at the Henry Ford museum long ago before it was fully restored.

I was fortunate enough to see the LeMans winning Gurney/Foyt MK IV at the NHRA museum back when they had the 100 years of Ford racing exhibit there, along with many other cool race cars like Parnelli Jones' Big Oly Bronco. I have video, but it's on tape, some day I'll have to see if I can get it posted. The MK IV is certainly impressive.

Take that Enzo 8)  The 60's sure produced some good memories and outstanding memorabilia as well-
