Ferrari and BRM headed the entry list with three entries each, followed by Surtees' single car, three cars for two drivers from Tyrrell Racing Organisation, three works Lotus 72s plus a fourth from Rob Walker, four works McLaren entries plus a fifth McLaren from Bonnier, two Matras, two Brabhams, two works Marches, and finally the single-car operations of Colin Crabbe, Frank Williams and Silvio Moser. Of these 27 entries, the 20 fastest would qualify irrespective of any seedings used by other organisers. After Rindt's fatal accident, the remaining Lotuses were withdrawn, leaving only three non-qualifiers, Bonnier, Galli and Moser. Bonnier's car was the McLaren M7C, still in John Surtees livery, and said by Motoring News to be over three years old when it was actually less than 18 months old.

Rodriguez' spare BRM P153 had new engine heads designed by Aubrey Woods, but the engine was still numbered as a P142. Ken Tyrrell had entered both the new Tyrrell 001 - Tyrrell becoming the 16th 3-litre F1 constructor - and the older March 701 for Stewart, so he had a spare car. The only T car specified by Motoring News was Rodriguez' BRM P153, but Autosport, Motor Sport and Motoring News all reported that the second Surtees TS7 was present, and that Ickx was again running a spare Ferrari 312B in practice, albeit without a 'T' on it. The four works McLarens were Hulme and Gethin in M14As, De Adamich in the M14D, and Nanni Galli in the older M7D. Motoring News noted that Gethin's "M14A/1" was a new car since the Austrian GP, the third car to carry this number, and that the older "M14A/1" was being kept in reserve for the North American races. Autosport reported this differently, that it was the same car but with a new monocoque, fabricated from heavier gauge alloy, as Hulme's new monocoque had been. Motor Sport and Sport Auto overlooked this completely. As the previous M14A/1 still existed back at the factory, it makes more sense to see this car as M14A/3 using the chassis plate (and carnet) from M14A/1. As Motor Sport's Bill Boddy was inclined to say, 'Pity the poor historian'.
