2005 FORD GT 1 OF 2 W/ SILVER STRIPES
This Ford GT was built early in the 2005 production run. It is being offered by Neil Ressler, a key executive in Ford Product Development. Ressler was instrumental in the formation of the Special Vehicle Team and the design and development of the 2005-06 Ford GT. It is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 engine with a 6-speed manual transmission. Midnight Blue was the chosen exterior color and it is only one of two cars built with an unapproved color combination. Ford stipulated that any car with the Midnight Blue exterior must, if it had graphics, be white graphics. This GT has silver stripes. The car is highly original with the optional wheels and audio system. It features billet suspension arms that are machined from ingots of aluminum. The axle bolts have been replaced and the Takata airbag inflators have been replaced with Autoliv inflators. This car has 4,100 actual miles, has spent its whole life in an air-conditioned garage and it has never been on a racetrack. This GT includes all documents from the factory initial build and subsequent service. Also included are team clothing and a team book, that were only available to team members.
