Evaluation: A four option car with 2945 miles. That’s on the high side for a GT, but it’s not really any less clean than any other GTs we see at these sales.
Bottom Line: 2005-06 Ford GTs are a regular sight at collector car auctions. Indeed, Mecum almost never hosts a sale without at least one or two of them. And it seems like the only time these cars are ever driven is on and off transport trucks or across an auction block. Three-digit odometer readings are the norm, and two digits isn’t uncommon. You’re more likely to see a GT with 500 miles than 5000.
These are exhilarating, well-engineered cars, so why doesn’t anybody drive them? Presumably to keep their value, but this car has almost six times as many miles as the similar ’06 GT sold the day before (F88) and yet the price didn’t suffer at all. In fact it sold for more, $467,500 vs. $434,500. What’s the lesson here? Live a little. Go out and enjoy your cars.
