Dan Gurney's Ford Mk II at Sebring 1966

Dan Gurney and Jerry Grant drove this Shelby American Ford Mk. II at Sebring in 1966. The car was disqualified because it was pushed over the finish line. If you are an old fart, like me, you remember that Gurney won the very first Daytona Continental in 1962 by using the starter and gravity to coast his Lotus across the finish line. After that the FIA mandated that a car had to be under its own power to cross the finish line. Photo by Bill Stowe.
