  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Never Unwrapped: Brand-New Gulf Blue 2006 Ford GT Heads to Auction

Recommended Posts



Distraught that you might not be deemed worthy of placing an order for the new Ford GT, of which fewer than 1000 are expected to be built? Relieve your anxiety by heading to the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction, which takes place April 8 to 10, where nothing will stand between you and this awesome 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition—except other bidders, that is.




According to Barrett-Jackson, this Heritage Edition, which is finished in the iconic Gulf blue and orange, is one of 343 built. Like all Ford GTs of this generation, it’s powered by a 540-hp supercharged 5.4-liter V-8, mated to a six-speed manual. This particular example, lot #401, is as close to new as it gets, with just five (5) miles on the odometer, and the interior still wrapped in factory plastic.




Hagerty currently values the Heritage Edition Ford GT at $505,000 in number-one condition, although the classic-car firm’s Jonathan Klinger cautions that, “You can expect that a vehicle like this will have strong interest and [will] very likely sell for an above-market premium.” According to Klinger, the highest price paid for a Heritage Edition Ford GT is $550,000 at Mecum’s 2014 Monterey sale, while the top auction price paid for a second-generation Ford GT is $605,000.




Bidders who get beat out in their quest to take home this particular GT do have another option: lot #426, another Ford GT Heritage Edition, also in Gulf blue. It has 3000 miles, but looks to be spotless. The plastic wrap, however, is long gone.
