The first models of the classic Ford GT date back to 1965. The early two-seater Mustangs were offered with the special ‘GT’ package, GT meaning the ‘Grand Touring’ package, designed for both high comfort and high speeds. These classic Ford GT cars had a 289 cubic-inch V8 engine, front disc brakes, fog lamps on the front and dual exhaust with polished chrome exteriors on the rear. The interior of the classic Ford GT offered attractive five-dial instrumentation that was exclusive to the GT package and separated the classic Ford GT further from standard interior packages. The classic Ford GT was offered as a performance-only race car, with the designation of Ford GT40. The classic Ford GT model went into commercial hibernation in 1969 but reappeared in 1982 with a 5.0L V8 engine and was much lighter and fuel efficient. The most famous example of a classic Ford GT is the modal driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 movie ‘Bullitt’.
