Chassis: 104
The most famous of all Formula 1 Eagles, chassis 104 was the experimental Mark 1 constructed from magnesium and titanium. Sometimes referred to as the 'Ti-Mag' car, it was used by Gurney to score his historic Belgian Grand Prix win at Spa. It was used for the remainder of the year and for much of the 1968 season. In 13 attempts it finally only managed to reach the finish twice. The second was lowly ninth in the 1968 German Grand Prix. The legendary machine was later acquired by Briggs Cunningham and displayed for many years in his museum until it closed in the late 1980s. Like most of that collection, it subsequently passed into the hands of another Florida-based collection where it resides until this day. Chassis 104 is seen here at the 2010 Monterey Motorsports Reunion where Dan Gurney's long career was celebrated, at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed and at the 2012 Goodwood Revival where Dan Gurney was the guest of honour.
