Lot #5001 - ----ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS SALE GO TO THE CARROLL SHELBY CHILDREN'S FOUNDATION----"This FORD GT carries VIN 00003 in Quicksilver dress. Quicksilver was a 2005-only color. This is the lowest production number offered to the public. 5.4 Liter/550hp V8 with a 6-speed transmission. The ultimate American sportscar. Ford wrote motor racing history in 1966 by becoming the first American manufacturer to win the grueling 24 Hours of LeMans Race. The epic victory was scored by the Ford GT (commonly known as the GT40), which went on to win another three times at LeMans. Today the performance of the GT is still considered the highlight in Ford's rich racing history and holds a special place in most racing enthusiasts' hearts. To celebrate their Centennial Anniversary Ford decided to give its most legendary design a rebirth, almost forty years after it first roared down the long straights of LeMans.
