Used Car of The Day: 2005 Ford GT

Maybe it's because we covered a $300,000 Ford Mustang last night. Maybe it's because I've always loved the looks of this generation Ford GT -- I've never driven one. Or maybe it's because I am feeling saucy on a summer Friday. Whatever the reason, today I bring you this California-based 2005 Ford GT.


Before you whine about us featuring a $375,000 used car, please remember that the point of this feature isn't to sell you the car -- the point is to feature cool cars, regardless of price or condition, and if you happen to spend more time on the forums our parent company runs, so much the better.

This is why sometimes we feature barely running heaps, project cars, or oddballs. Today, however, we're going with a "meticulously" maintained supercar from San Diego that has four options, 14,000 miles, and has had just two owners.

This car has a rear bumper delete, Ahlman shocks, a muffler delete, and a short shift kit.

If this tickles your fancy, you can check it out here, though we'd suggest not actually calling about it unless your bank account is that of a Fortune 500 CEO. The seller asks for serious inquiries only, please respect that.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Ok, yes I'm a Ford fan, so this fits with the Cobra kit that was posted here a bit ago. I don't normally go for cars of this type, but this one hits all the go buttons. There are starting to be a several Lambos and Ferarris here, so why not Ford's finest ripping Iowa Street? Dream big.

    You can drive a 2004 Ford GT in GTA 4's sub storyline; The Ballad of Gay Tony. It is labelled as a Bullet GT.

      It was also a hidden car in Driv3r, as well as a Cobra. Destroyed that poor car many times.


  • Carson D I hadn't seen a second-generation Courier with a Mazda engine before. I've seen a few with Ford engines. There was one at the Cox Driving Range that they used to collect golf balls. Golf would definitely be more entertaining to watch if they used moving targets.
  • Tassos ooops, Tim, you missed this one. Would make a lovely "Tim's used car of the day". It satisfies all the prerequisites except the wildly overpriced bit.
  • Tassos ASTON AND BOND BY A MILE. While Aston Martin sells a TINY FRACTION of what even the rarified Ferrari and Lambo sell, it is unbelievably well known. Credit the idiotic, but hugely successful and sometimes entertaining James Bond Movies.
  • Tassos 1988? Too young for me. It's all yours, Tim... BAHAHAHAHA!
  • Gray Awesome. Love these. But, if I had the money for a Fox-body, there is a clean '84 GT 350 here for little more than half the price.
