The Ford GT is a bit of a modern throwback, paying homage to the legendary Ford GT40 racer. So it only makes sense that FoMoCo would create and sell a variety of Heritage Edition GTs over the years, beginning with the first-gen and continuing on to the current second-gen. Thanks to Ford’s two-year resale restriction period for the newest GT, however, folks can’t just turn around and immediately resell their limited-edition ride for a profit. But this 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition has just passed that mark, and is now up for grabs at Mecum’s upcoming 2020 Las Vegas auction.
The Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition, like its brethren, was created specifically to pay homage to one historic event in GT history. In this case, that’s the first and only all-American team to win Le Mans, consisting of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt. Both Gurney and Foyt have signed the engine coil cover on this GT as well, which makes it all the more special.
The ’67 Heritage Edition certainly looks special with its Race Red exterior, Frozen White accents, and an exposed gloss carbon fiber trim option. The wheels are 20 inch one-piece forged aluminum units finished in in silver satin clearcoat with black lug nuts, which cover Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes with red calipers.
The interior features new leather trim for the carbon fiber seats with red accent stitching, which also adorns the steering wheel. Additional features inside include red seat belt webbing, anodized gray paddle shifters, and satin dark stainless appliqués on the instrument panel, door register bezels, and x-brace.
Rounding out modifications to the ’67 Heritage Edition are a unique serialized identification plate and exposed matte carbon fiber door sills, air register pods, and center console. This particular car also comes with two Ford optioned personalized car covers, one of which is new in the box.
This special Ford GT hasn’t yet received an auction estimate, but we imagine that it won’t sell cheap. Regardless, whoever brings it home will have supreme bragging rights, because there aren’t a lot of these things out there in the world.
