Our friends at Roads & Rides examine the Ford GT 108, an important car in the history of racing because it was the first car built by the Ford Advanced Vehicles division as well as the first of four roadsters and the only Ford GT driven by Jim Clark.
The car 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.
