Finally completed the ordering process and sent in my deposit! I tormented long time to make final choices for my allocation! This is largest and greatest car purchase for me in my lifetime and wanted it to be right, no regrets! So many choices! I live in an isolated area and have only seen a few GTs ! Drove 4 hrs last spring for the opportunity to see a blue one! Have gone through all the posts in GTs so far a dozen times!! I was hoping for a heritage so decision was made, but fortunate to get CF edition, but more decisions to be made! I congratulate those who took advantage of the extended palette! I decided to go with standard color (liquid grey), I thought Ford designers must have really thought about colors for this incredibly beautiful creation and went with it!
Thank you Philip my GT concierge for your patience. Good luck to you future GT owners and your decisions!!

Congrats. I can imagine the intense thought process, it is a big purchase and a forever attachment. Love liquid grey from what I’ve seen in pictures. Great choice.

It really is a hard thing to finalize, even though it seems like you can't go wrong on any color. Did you go with an accent color?

Yes, liked release photos for CF , but wanted metallic color ( not leadfoot), so orange accents!

Congratulations, great combination! I would hate to order a New GT today after seeing all the color combinations of those previously built. It would be very difficult. All colors look great!

Thanks Fred! I did remember grey was your second choice! I tormented for a long time between the blue and the grey! Definitely let’s get together this driving season!

Congratulations. Next big event is the invitation to see your car without its clothes on. Really a great opportunity. Don't miss it. What a great feeling to know you are getting a car and then being able to spec it out as you want it.
