1965 Le Mans irony

In 1965 Ford had suffered public humiliation at the Le Mans 24 Hours when all six factory cars retired before the halfway point.

 What is often overlooked is that the four Maranello-entered Ferraris also fell by the wayside leaving Italian honour to upheld by the ageing privateer NART-entered Ferrari 250 LM

Ironically, it was driven by an American, Masten Gregory, and an Austrian, Jochen Rindt.
