Thanks for all the congratulations, guys. I feel very blessed.
Here is a public answer to a private question about service records.
I have them all, and of course they go with the car.
The first service done on my Heritage was the rear axle output flange fasteners recall/replacement/ upgrade. This was done before we had a problem with the original fasteners/bolts. They did a multi-point inspection and also warranted an erratic multi-function/turn signal switch. At 2142 miles on 3/11/08.
I had Ford warranty two different oil pressure sending units that gave erratic readings (even though the oil pressure was always correct). And then I bought a third sending unit (fortunately not GT-specific, and not expensive or hard to replace). While they were replacing one of those senders, and already had the belly pans off, I had Ford do one of the oil changes, under my supervision, with the Ford part # oil and filter specified by Ford.
Ford warrantied a new OEM battery for me at 3050 miles on 10/01/09, and the third battery, now in the car, has the Ford GT sticker on it and has always been on the trickle charger/maintainer, and still spins the engine what seems like as fast as ever. Never any gage problems with this car, but I have always made sure the battery ground strap/cable connection is clean, bright, and tight, and I let the gages normalize before starting the engine.
Ford replaced under warranty the boot for the emergency brake handle that had a mark on it from the brake handle being a little too loose on the adjustment, and therefore traveling enough too far with the brake fully applied, to pinch the boot. Same visit they replaced a erratic-reading oil pressure sensor. Engine oil and filter change. This at 3307 miles, on 12/14/09
On one of the GT Guys trips through Texas, I had them do the pictured big Whipple and drive belt install and tune with the SCT tuner/code reader that I received with the Whipple purchase. They did the Accufab big throttle body install and the Mafia that makes the fuel pressure correct with the extra boost. They installed a cooler set of spark plugs for the anticipated extra power. The ones that came out are perfect and go with the sale. We installed an air intake tube inner support to keep the rubber tube from distorting/ flexing inward under high air flow demand. They did the install of the Heffner Stainless muffler eliminator. With the belly pans off for the other work, I had them change the engine oil and filter, change the transaxle oil, check the oil pump belt and pulley and alignment, change the engine anti freeze and coolant, change the aftercooler antifreeze and coolant, change the brake and clutch system fluid, and retorque the rear axle outer hub nuts. This at mileage 3994, on 10-25-2011. In the seven years and four months since then, I have averaged about 138 miles a year by starting the car, getting it up to temp and running it gently through the gears and cycling the heater and air conditioner, and not let the car sit too long in between drives, to avoid flatspotting the tires. All the miles on the car are on the original tires, brake discs and pads, and all you have to do to verify the condition of the car, is to inspect those original parts. Most of the last thousand miles are in my own driveway (1/4 mile long all concrete) . Helping to verify that, my last Texas inspection sticker was year 2014, last vehicle registration 2015, and both of those stickers are still on the car.
The last service done was by Ford, and they made a house call to do both air bag replacements, and under my supervision, (and with a couple of my tools).
This is not directly related to my Heritage sale, but yesterday, 4/9/19, was the thirty first anniversary of drag racing's first run in the four second zone. I was blessed with a run of 4.99 seconds at 288 mph on 4/9/88, the day that seemed to demand it. Thank you, Lord!
Eddie,have you thought about separating the sale with all the extras such as selling the wheels and other hardware separately. Potential takers might want the car as it came from the show room,without the ancillary stuff.
I have thought about that, and would do so if a buyer wants it that way, and offered that option somewhere in my ad. I had rather wait for a buyer that wants it the way it is now, but I can go either way, depending on the wishes of the buyer.
