Auction House
Chassis no. 1FAFP90S96Y401526. Heritage Blue and orange over Ebony leather. 330/550hp, 6-speed, McIntosh stereo, red painted calipers, BBS wheels.

Evaluation: One of 343 Heritage Edition GTs, which have become a regular sight at Mecum auctions. Another regular sight is a low odometer reading on a GT, in this case just 250.

Bottom Line: The 2005-06 Ford GT’s original $150,000 base price is pretty much irrelevant now since it became a collectible car very quickly, to the point that any GT with more than a couple thousand ticks on the odometer is “high mileage.” This one isn’t uniquely clean, then, but it is well-optioned and it hasn’t been to auction before.

It was ambitiously estimated, but modern exotic cars have been selling well recently and so much money was being plonked down in Kissimmee this year that this $715,000 final price was only mildly surprising. The only shame is that, with just 250 miles on the odometer, the new owner won’t be able to enjoy the 550hp and a 6-speed stick very much without feeling guilty.

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.
