Is This GT/108 or GT/109 ? Info with the photo said Riverside ? ?

Mike

IMHO, I can't speak to the location, others here are more authoritative if it's Riverside,
although I was thinking it is,
The white CSX2xxx and GT350 in the background suggests to me it may be the SAI product press day??

I seem to recall GT/108 was used for Sports Car Graphic Oct 1965 issue "Track Test" by Jerry Titus.
Were these the same incident or 2 different events???

This is likely at Lemans.
It looks different (more light panels in the roof) than the race hanger LAX

I believe this is GT/108 on exhibition at Riverside; April 30, 1965 during the USRRC event.
It was also demonstrated at Laguna Seca on May 9th
...and again at LAX for the open house weekend on June 7-9th

Strange scoops on the nose of this MKI.
I assumed this was P-1041 at Zolder based on the race number

Mk.11 (1015) Miles-Hulme, on the scales at Le mans, 1966. Is that ken Miles with no shirt, on the right, behind the man with the

 hat ? I wonder if the people leaning on the scales at left made any difference in weight ?

The photo with people touching the scales was probably taken right after it was weighed in (I hope)

It does appear to be Ken Miles...shirtless, as we see so often in the pits.

Yes Riverside.
Was 108 the press car? When Ford wanted to do a euro looking commercial and ads they took a GT and some other cars to Catalina Island and promptly drove the GT off the pier.

6R07mi, you are right about the GT40 test,  I have that magazine, Sports Car Graphic, Oct. '65,  but can't get at it at the moment,

 here's a grab from the net of two pages.

98SVT,   your mention of Ford shooting a commercial on Catalina Island, jogged my memory, I seem to remember an article about

 that incident in one of the magazines back in the day, Sports Car graphic, maybe Car & Driver, I would have to dig for it, as

mentioned above can't get to them right now.

I'll wager SCG since it was Rick Titus that told me about it.
