"[...] Along with GT/101, 102, 103 and 104, GT/105 was completed in early 1964, and is one of four factory lightweight prototype examples. It was a test, development and race car for the factory team, and is the highest test mileage example still in existence. It was the first GT40 to ever run the howling 289cu/in Ford V8 (an engine it had from birth) and the first GT40 to ever run the ZF gearbox. It would also be the first GT40 fitted with the stunningly beautiful and iconic production bodywork. It was the 1965 Le Mans Test car, and competed at Reims, Sebring and Daytona as a works car. During its life as a factory racer, it would be driven by Driven by Le Mans winners, Formula 1 champions, and greats including: Richard Attwood, Bruce McLaren, Jean-Louis Schlesser, Phil Hill, John Horsman, Sir John Whitmore, Frank Gardner, Roy Salvadori, Bob Bondurant, Jochen Neerpasch, Giancarlo Baghetti, Maurice Trintignant, Peter Sutcliffe, Bob Grossman, Innes Ireland and Umberto Maglioli.
