Automotive history up for grabs on Trade Me

Automotive history up for grabs on Trade Me

Ford-GTF_0284Ford New Zealand is to auction FPV GT F #50, with a portion of the sale proceeds going to a charity partner.

Only 50 of the Ford Falcon FPV GT Fs were built for sale in New Zealand, and the very last of these, #50, will go up for auction on TradeMe on 16 February and run for two weeks, closing on 2 March.

Head of Trade Me Motors Darren Wiltshire says his team was excited to see the Ford FPV GT F listed on the site.

“We know lots of Kiwis love their Fords and will get pretty excited once they spot this one. We reckon this will be one of the most popular vehicle auctions on the site so far this year.”

Ford NZ’s charity partner of 25 years – Variety the Children’s Charity, will receive a portion of the sale’s proceeds.

The FPV GT F pays tribute to the Falcon GT lineage which began in 1967.

“Being #50 of only 50, this is a highly collectible vehicle,” says Ford New Zealand managing director Corey Holter. “It will also make a very fine and valuable addition to any enthusiast’s collection.”

The car will wear the personalised registration plate ‘GTF 50’. It has an automatic transmission and comes in Silhouette Black with a matte black stripe package. The vehicle is brand new and will be registered for the first time to the auction winner.

It is powered by a supercharged 5.0-litre DOHC all-aluminium V8 engine, producing 351 kW and 570 Nm of torque. The vehicle wears a “351” badge, recalling the 351 cubic-inch 5.8-litre V8 engine of the Falcon GT of the late ‘60s and ‘70s.

All GT Fs are also numbered with a special badge on the lower dash area.
