Used Car of The Day: 2005 Ford GT

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.

    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.

  • Theflyersfan The two Louisville truck plants are still operating, but not sure for how much longer. I have a couple of friends who work at a manufacturing company in town that makes cooling systems for the trucks built here. And they are on pins and needles wondering if or when they get the call to not go back to work because there are no trucks being made. That's what drives me up the wall with these strikes. The auto workers still get a minimum amount of pay even while striking, but the massive support staff that builds components, staffs temp workers, runs the logistics, etc, ends up with nothing except the bare hope that the state's crippled unemployment system can help them keep afloat. In a city where shipping (UPS central hub and they almost went on strike on August 1) and heavy manufacturing (GE Appliance Park and the Ford plants) keeps tens of thousands of people employed, plus the support companies, any prolonged shutdown is a total disaster for the city as well. UAW members - you're not getting a 38% raise right away. That just doesn't happen. Start a little lower and end this. And then you can fight the good fight against the corner office staff who make millions for being in meetings all day.
  • Dusterdude The "fire them all" is looking a little less unreasonable the longer the union sticks to the totally ridiculous demands ( or maybe the members should fire theit leadership ! )
  • Thehyundaigarage Yes, Canadian market vehicles have had immobilizers mandated by transport Canada since around 2001.In the US market, some key start Toyotas and Nissans still don’t have immobilizers. The US doesn’t mandate immobilizers or daytime running lights, but they mandate TPMS, yet canada mandates both, but couldn’t care less about TPMS. You’d think we’d have universal standards in North America.
  • Alan I think this vehicle is aimed more at the dedicated offroad traveller. It costs around the same a 300 Series, so its quite an investment. It would be a waste to own as a daily driver, unless you want to be seen in a 'wank' vehicle like many Wrangler and Can Hardly Davidson types.The diesel would be the choice for off roading as its quite torquey down low and would return far superior mileage than a petrol vehicle.I would think this is more reliable than the Land Rovers, BMW make good engines.
  • Lorenzo I'll go with Stellantis. Last into the folly, first to bail out. Their European business won't fly with the German market being squeezed on electricity. Anybody can see the loss of Russian natural gas and closing their nuclear plants means high cost electricity. They're now buying electrons from French nuclear plants, as are the British after shutting down their coal industry. As for the American market, the American grid isn't in great shape either, but the US has shale oil and natural gas. Stellantis has profits from ICE Ram trucks and Jeeps, and they won't give that up.
