In the early 1960's Henry Ford II attempted to buy out Ferrari. Ferrari pulled out at the last minute, and in response Ford decided to build a car that could beat Ferrari. In August of 1963 Henry Ford II officially announced that he would build a race car to compete in endurance races such as the 24 Hours of LeMans. Ford used a branch of their company, Ford Advanced Vehicles, Ltd in England to build the car. The first prototype (pictured) was first shown to the press in March of 1964 in Slough, England. The car was later flown to America for inspection by Ford and then flown back to England for further construction.
