    I have a friend who owns a ford dealership. Back when these came out, he offered to sell me his allocation at MSRP, whenmost everyone else was selling way over... stupidly I declined. It looked just like this one. What great looking cars! GLWS!

    I too remember, when a GT could be bought in 2006/2007 for under 100k. I wanted one, but could not afford one then. I had just started a new business venture. Now, things are better and I wish I could go back and buy 2 or 3 at that 100k...

    Hmm under a 100 I sure don't remember that. Maybe 130 or so unless you're talking a salvage car. I picked up mine for about MSRP in 2013 with 30k miles. Now at almost 40k best car I've ever owned. This white one sure is a beauty! GLWS

    I know a local guy who had a rare 60's? mustang. Don't know specifically which one but a collector traded him a then brand new Ford GT AND a brand new Mustang GT500. Yeah even if the 60's Stang was a Boss 429 guess who made out long term??

    Awesome clean example!
    I love mine, bought it 7 years ago around the 150k (Canadian) mark with 4k miles.
    I now have just under 30k miles and I love every time I get behind the wheel.

    +1...back when they came out I had looked into them. 130-150k without dealer markup if memory serves me right.

    Amazing: after buying the car, the owner put it in storage for 12 years.

    This one is an excellent example.

    I was talking with a collector/restorer who is dialed into the industry. He is saying that these cars 2003 iteration GTs have peaked and as the new one is released, these will start to slip and then plateau.

    Strong money here..I think the opposite. As amazing as the new car is, I still prefer the 05/06 gen.

    I agree. Think of the car as a 997 GT3 RS but a Ford example. Its truly the last of its kind and while there are newer examples of both cars the prices on clean low mile examples keep going up.

    Nice looking FGT!

    I don't remember these FGT's ever selling for less than sticker price. The low point I remember was sticker price.

    I was wrong on this one, with the number produced... I thought there was no way the values would go up where they did. But happy that I was wrong with this one, it's great for the Ford brand and makes me proud.

    When I'm out in my GT I get love from all the walks of life. Young kids to folks who remember the original car well and what it stands for. I believe the appreciation is indicative of the fact that most serious collectors have a GT in their stable. Even with 4K built the car is coveted by so many.

    47k miles on my white/blue '05. Not near as clean as this one, but I've enjoyed 12 years of ownership.

    Funny, that's how I got mine. I traded my 69 GT500 for a brand new Heritage GT in 06. I have around 6,000 miles on it and have no interest in the new car. As to the value they will do nothing but continue to go up. If you get one drive it that's what its built for. Those ultra low mile cars will have all kinds of problems if anyone starts driving them. Ask the GT Guys. They are the best GT tech shop in the US.

    104 miles? If I could afford it, I'd totally drive the hell out of that thing! It would have 30k miles in no time.

    Expect a bump up in the '05-'06s when the 2017s start trading in the secondary markets for close to 7 figures.
