Hello,

We are looking for a driver-quality Ford GT to pair with our new Ford Raptor :wink We visited Shelby (WOW, what a showroom) and have seen a few other cars in person (3 flights so far). Quick thank you to the person who drafted and posted the Ford GT inspection guide (we used it) and thank you to everyone we've talked to and visited so far.

Color - blue (1st) but will consider others except for silver/tungsten/heritage
Stripes - either
Owners - would be cool to buy from an original owner
Specs - any combination of options is acceptable
Mileage - 10k+
Mods - preferably none or few/light, Bridgestones are welcome!
Location - we will travel to see cars (US only)
Notes - preferably all-original paint, no wrecks and no bad stories
Timing - ready to buy now.

We will (likely) be putting miles on the car, 2500+ per year, so our search is limited to non collector type GTs.

PM me for contact info or reply here.

I'm certainly no expert but you should consider buying now typically, prices seem to go higher as weather warms.

We're ready to buy now : ) Just need a nice blue example to surface. All leads welcome and appreciated.

Your welcome on the 2005/6 GT PPI inspection form I posted. Was based on a 6 month search and help from others. When your ready to buy if not from trusted source, get a PPI done by FGT tech.

Noob question -

FGT tech - is that a username or a company? Thanks.

Was a pleasure meeting you. I have my eyes open for a blue car and will definitely let you know if anything pops up....

You would be hard pressed to beat my 14k white which I sold to Shelby after years of joy. I had a blue and the white and kept the white. Both gorgeous . The car was more reliable than a Camry. Has new Bridgestones , fluids, etc. Gauges and all else works. Happy to discuss history with you.

I saw your white one and agree 100% on the condition. Am hoping to find a blue one with similar miles (over 10k) -

You definitely will pay a premium for the blue. Only 455 made, yellow even tougher with 171 produced. Many people aren't "yellow car" people. I have a red and I want a blue also, followed by a yellow.

This is the same guy who was mass mailing all FGT owners saying he was buying them for his collection. Guess he's liquidating now.:)
