Ford GTs are already rare machines, but for prospective owners with an appreciation of Blue Oval history, Ford is offering something special. In celebration of the GT40 Mark IV race car that Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt drove to victory back in 1967, Ford is releasing a ’67 Heritage Edition of the 2018 Ford GT. It features several unique styling cues that harken back to the race winner.

Sprayed in Race Red, the ’67 Heritage Edition sports a Frozen White livery, including Number 1 graphics on the hood and doors. This edition also features wheels with a unique, clear-coated satin silver finish accented by black lug nuts. The theme continues with red brake calipers and silver mirror caps.

“In creating a worthy successor to the 2017 Heritage edition, we logically looked at our next historic Le Mans victory with the all-American team of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt,” Dave Pericak, global director Ford Performance, said. “The 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition pays homage to that win, with a modern take on one of the most important vehicles in Ford’s storied history of racing.”
