Classics is proud to present to you our 2006 Ford GT Coupe!
Built to pride the Ford name in the heritage of the 1966 LeMans winning FORD GT40. Unbeaten from 1966-1970 This Ford GT sits right at home here at Classics; with the perfect blend of the 1966 GT40 body styling, T-top styled doors, coupled with modern performance and handling. This GT is truly an incredible feat of modern day innovation and considered a Modern day Pro-Touring GT40 built directly by Ford.
Still in the wrapper is this “One Owner” 2006 Ford GT with less than 500 Miles on the odometer. This GT was purchased from Crater Lake Ford in Medford, Oregon on 1/11/2007 and remained in a climate controlled garage in Alaska by a renowned Shelby collector. This GT is fully documented and still retains many components and panels still in the factory protective film. This GT is 1 out of 2,100 made in the last 2006 year. All recall, warranty, and fluids were performed by certified Ford GT experts. It has a high Carfax rating and has zero accident reports. The front end of this GT was wrapped with PPF (Paint Protection Film) and then a Ceramic coating was applied to further protect the Rare Mark II Black Clearcoat Paint with Painted Silver Stripes.
This two-seat Ford GT uses a supercharged, 32-valve DOHC V-8 with 550 hp, which is mounted in a hydroformed aluminum and composite chassis that features exotic coilover suspension, and Brembo brakes at all four corners. Handling and braking were as impressive as the coupe’s 3.5-second 0-60 time and 200+ mph top speed. Positive reviews as well as favorable comparisons due to the movie, ” Ford VS. Ferrari” only fueled the frenzy for this car, and many sold well above MSRP. Four options were available for the Ford GT, and these included Shelby-type racing stripes, forged BBS wheels, painted brake calipers, and an upgraded sound system. This GT was equipped with three of these options, Silver Painted Racing Stripes, Forged Aluminum BBS wheels, and the Upgraded McIntosh radio with single CD. In order to keep the stealth look and design this GT opted out for a bright red caliper paint and instead a black coating made the BBS wheels more prevalent.
The 1st generation GT was produced for the 2005 and 2006 model years. Originally shown as a concept at the 2002 North American International Auto Show, six weeks later Ford Motor Company decided to produce a limited production. This GT began its assembly at Mayflower Vehicle Systems (MVS) in Norwalk, Ohio and was painted. It continued assembly at Saleen Special Vehicles (SSV) facility in Troy, Michigan, through a contract by Ford. The GT is powered by an engine built at Ford’s Romeo Engine Plant in Romeo, Michigan. Installation of the engine and transmission along with seats and interior finishing was handled in the SVT building at Ford’s Wixom, Michigan plant.
Some early production cars had issues with their electrical systems and suspension control arms, as well as engine main seal oil leaks. Throughout the production run, some cars also suffered axle bolt failures. Ford corrected all of this under warranty, so these well-publicized issues should not represent a current problem as this Ford GT has been documented for the warranty work to provide a peace of mind.
Today the Ford GT offers a breathtaking level of mid-engine performance, coupled with reliability that is difficult for some of its European contemporaries to match. For this reason, the Ford GT has found a home in a number of top-tier collections around the world, and is arguably the finest American car developed during the past 30 years.
Please understand that the mileage on this GT may slightly increase due to filming purposes.
