First shown at the January 1963 London Racing Car Show, this was the prototype for the Mk6 GT. It was the undisputed star of the show and made its competition debut at the Silverstone Tourist Trophy four months later. Tony Maggs eventually finished the race in fifth overall. Later that month, it was raced in the Nürburgring 1000 km race where Tony Maggs and Bob Olthoff failed to reach the finish due to problems with one of the rear wheels. In August of 1963, it was acquired by Ford and used extensively for test and development work of what eventually would become the GT40. After Eric Broadley left the program, he received this car as part of the settlement. In May of 1965, it was acquired from Broadley by American racer Allen Grant. Although he only drove the car once in period, Grant has owned the car for over 50 years now. In what would turn out to be a multi-year project the unique Mk6 GT prototype was eventually restored to its London Motor Show Configuration. It first shown in public during the 2016 McCall Motorworks Revival and Quail, a Motorsports Gathering, where it received the Octane Editor's Choice Award. In 2017, it returned to Europe and was demonstrated at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
