New Arrival - 2005 Ford GT

I had fun the last few days scouring the internet for interesting Ford GT videos to add to this listing. I think you'll enjoy the one that is just from a couple months ago with Jay Leno and Camilo Pardo (Chief Designer on the Ford GT). It really is good and worth the time to watch. You'll find that video in the listing link below.

The whole story of the original GT40s, the racing history, and how it all led to Ford producing this car is truly amazing and so interesting. I know this has a bit of a salesmanship component to it, but I believe if you are building a collection of cars, you should have a Ford GT in it. Even if only for a few years. It is one of the icons of contemporary automotive design and a true analog car to enjoy.

The original Ford GT40 was an impressive race car. Full stop. It debuted in 1964 and while there were some development pains in 1964 and 1965, there was no doubt that Ford and the GT40 dominated the 1966 season. They swept the podium with a 1-2-3 finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The GT40 went on to win Le Mans outright again in 1967, 1968, and 1969.  Ford had cemented the GT40 in motorsports history.

Ford began design work on the Ford GT (the name was changed from GT40 due to licensing issues, plus the car had now exceeded the original car’s famous 40” height) and debuted a prototype at the 2002 Detroit Auto Show. In 2003 (Ford’s Centennial celebration year), Ford shared three more prototypes around the globe, and marched forward to deliver the first cars in late 2004, as 2005 model year cars. Ford went on to manufacture 4,038 examples of the Ford GT in 2005 and 2006 before ceasing production.

This 2005 Ford GT is available now for inspection and purchase in Issaquah, WA. You can see a full set of photos and all details here - 2005 Ford GT

Please give me a call to talk about this car, or anything else inventory - I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,
Jason
