Chassis no. 1FAFP90SX6Y400417, Black over black leather, 33/550hp supercharged V-8, 6-speed manual, BBS wheels, painted calipers, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, aftermarket Pioneer stereo with navigation.

Evaluation: Originally delivered to a dealer in New Jersey but shortly went to a private collection in Japan. Showing 1334 miles and very clean, although the humongous screen for the stereo system looks a bit distracting.

Bottom Line: There’s no shade in which a 2005-06 Ford GT doesn’t look great, but there’s also a strong argument that black paint, no stripes, and BBS wheels look the best. This black GT sold at Gooding’s Pebble Beach auction in 2017 for $286,000, a somewhat modest result at the time. Four years and about 250 miles later, it brought a hammer bid $45,000 higher. While far from the biggest ROI we’ve ever heard of in the car world, it shows that sometimes all you need to make a little money on a car are good timing and some luck. It also shows the continued high demand for these analog American supercars, which are worth nearly twice what they were 10 years ago.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
