Yes, al three photos are from the same internet source at the Texas State Fair.

I beleive that event was in October 1966 and the GT40 is GT-104 restored for Ford by Kar Kraft.

GT/105 ??  I recall GT/105 had the "Nassau" nose, halibrand wheels.
I  just don't know what nose GT/104 received when they "refurbished" is post SAI?  The more typical MK-I production version?

This GT-40 may be MK-II XGT-3 ??

Don Eichstaedt is reported to have purchased from Kar Kraft in 1977,
so in 1971 it would still be a Kar Kraft asset? and Don may have had access to take it to Waterford Hills club event?

I'm interested if there are others with knowledge?

regards

super-cool webfind photo of P/1007 on display during the Jochen Rindt Show at the Messepalast Vienna in Nov 1965

FWIW

reminds of the GT40 shots in the French film A Man and A Woman. The Man is a test driver and one of the cars he drives is a GT40. It was released in 1966. Don't know if this could be the same. Nevertheless the film has some of the best car-to-GT40 shots ever imho.

Ford France was a subsidiary before Ford of Europe was formed.

For the french language challenged, ecurie on the door is french for stable

You got it! P/1007 is the same GT40 used in that film.
