This is Kendall (Cool Tech) and I am putting this up for a friend who wishes to remain private.

  • This is a black car, silver stripe, later-build 2005 (15XX VIN). 3-option car. Has the Mac, optional BBS wheels, and the stripes. Brake calipers are black which, of course, match the black car.
  • Sold by the original owner. Car has been in Southern California and garaged its whole life.
  • 100% stock. Airbag replacement has been performed by dealer.
  • Tires were updated in July of 2019 because of age concerns.
  • Ryan made a house-call this week and replaced the Fuel Gauge with the new gauge from AutoMeter. All is perfect now.
  • Original Window Sticker, both keys, car cover and bag, another car cover, and owners manual all included.

Low mileage, original owner, no-stories cars are getting harder and harder to find. Asking price is $305K and given the condition of this car and what others have recently sold for, my opinion is that this is a fair price on both sides.

If you are interested, please contact me at kpond@sbcglobal.net I'm happy to answer/address any questions from a serious buyer. We can do a complete and thorough PPI on the car at the buyers discretion. We would have every expectation of validating what has been represented here.

It IS gorgeous! I sincerely believe that $305K for this car is a very good value. 1700 miles. It would be virtually impossible to find a better car. If a black/silver strip car is on your list of colors - this is as good as it gets.

OK, I have received several inquiries requesting pictures. The car was just meticulously detailed. It's a black car (duh!), but the detailer said that he couldn't find a single rock chip. This car is just crazy clean. No stories. Original owner. A whopping 1700 miles. If you are in the market for a Black GT, I can't imagine how it can get any better than this.

Car looks very nice (y) although the pics are pretty small :unsure:

If a comp is needed, this 1,100-mi red '05 on BaT ended today at $308K, although reserve not met: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2005-ford-gt-21/

I'm starting to wonder if prices are cooling, because BaT had 9 GTs in a row sell, whereas of the past 4, 3 didn't meet reserve. So either sellers are expecting more now, or prices are cooling, or some of both. All past results: https://bringatrailer.com/ford/gt/

Oh, and remember BaT has a $5K buyer's fee (for sale prices $100K+) so each Sold price is actually $5K higher than shown.

Yes, that IS a problem. I have tried various techniques (on OTHER cars) to get the blue tape off and I have concluded that it is virtually impossible. If anyone has a technique that they have successfully used, please let me know!

You can start by peeling off as much as you can and use “Goo-Gone” sparingly for the remainder. That and elbow grease!

Yup, I took my blue tape off a couple years ago and wow, was that a surprise. Just worked on it and worked on it, inch by inch, with goo-gone. Learned my lesson there, not to leave stuff on for a decade plus. I was thinking it would come right off and be perfect.

It was perfect alright, but took a while to get it all off.

Question, did the car sell from this post, and go to a forum member?

My assumption is that it was this post that connected seller to buyer. It was a pleasure for me to see a very nice GT transition to a new, enthusiastic owner. FWIW, I had absolutely no monetary benefit - and perhaps even an investment, as we did a PPI in order to give the buyer the confidence to spend this kind of money site unseen.

Great to hear that this forum is still such a fantastic resource, and has not fallen down the FB rat hole, that has eroded so many other good forums!
