The 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition is coming into the world celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40 thanks to its Gulf Oil livery. Ford knows just how important the livery is in their heritage and how much fans love the paint scheme, so it was a no brainer to create the car. With such adoration for the livery, this GT is going to be a hot ticket but Barrett-Jackson is giving their bidders a chance to take home VIN 001.

At the 48th Annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, Arizona auction on January 19, 2019, the special GT will be auctioned off by Ford. What’s more, proceeds from the sale will be donated to United Way for Southeastern Michigan. 

“The 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition instantly became one of the most anticipated cars in the world with its famous paint scheme,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president, Global Operations. “This car’s amazing history should help the United Way for Southeastern Michigan raise a lot of money to advance their mission of helping make lives better in our communities.”

For the 2019 model, the car comes with the blue and orange exterior, as well as No. 9 graphics on the hood and door. Inside the car is an Ebony Alcantara interior with blue and orange stitching. Each Heritage Edition will also come with a serialized ID plate.
