Recommended Posts

My Ford salesman called me today to inform me that he received a sales promo card on a limited edition 2007 GT500 "Red Rocket" Shelby. It somes in either black or white only with special red/black interior, special wheels, fuel filler cap, red side and LeMans stripes, and some other show goodies. I don't know how many they're making, but it adds $1995 to the price. Orders must be booked before May1st.

Anyone else hear of this?

I do like that black with red stripes...very nice! I had added more of a cranberry red stripe on my wife's White GT vert. So the White with the red probably looks hot too.

That is a great color combo on your wife's pony. They must look great together in your driveway side by side.

just had to tell someone who cared. we are a small dealer. we are only going to get one GT500 a year, well when the red stripe package came out i called to try and beg for another GT500. the zone manager said it was above her head and she couldnt help. so NO red striped GT500 for me.

now the good news. the zone mgr just called and we have been allocated another GT500 for 07. thats right folks im ordering a black with red stripes. of course the car is for sale but i just wanted one on the floor to look at. im car crazy so i shouldnt be in the car buisness

had to tell someone, so i told my 5k close friends

thanks

What does package at free demand mean? Can a dealer order as many of these as he wants during this time frame or just from his original allocation amount??

IF a dealer has allocation for a GT500, then he can order it with the red stripes. IF he has already used his allocation for the year then he cant get one. free demand means that every GT500 built from hear until the end of the production run could have red stripes, but that wont happen. you still have cars that are presold and are ordered a certain way.

Michael,

 

I have located a dealer with an allocation for a black GT 500 with the red stripe option. What do you think a reasonable sale price would be based on what you know with the 08's coming down the pipe. I'm going to be shown the DORA.

 

Your best guess at ADM and what you think.

wow that a good question.

i think that the red stripe might be kinda hard to come by. i dont think being late 07 is going to hurt the car, because of the speciality of the package. i sold a orange with gray ( the one in my avatar) to a collector. he has 24 GT500 (07). i emailed him and told him about this car. i think this car might still bring 15k or more over MSRP, but please understand that this is just a guess. my luck when it gets here they will be bringing 200 over COST. my black with red is NOT sold, please let me know if you interested. i really would like to know what the dealer your talking to is thinking how much his car is going to bring. dont forget im a car salesman, ill look at any reasonable offer. im not greedy.

let me know what you come up with

I'll know more when I look at the DORA and see the equipment list, I forgot to ask if they are available in convertable. In any event I have also noted many dealers that stated their allocation for 07 are up for the year as did my dealer two weeks ago. I am now seeing posts like yours and my dealer that states zone reps are calling asking if they want another in this crimson red package.

 

PM me your best deal with no trade, but as a consumer I have a hard time paying over MSRP as I believe there is enough profit built into the sale of these cars. The Shelby Mustang bottom has fallen out due to the number being produced and I suspect there will be a Shelby Mustang Convertable after the Hertz GT H Mustangs get built in 08.

 

We're looking at another 8,000 GT 500's in 08 so there should be enough to go around.

 

From a dealers point of view, whats going on with this car late in the build year with 4-6 weeks to go??????

 

Your building some really good credibility on this forum, keep up the posts. This purchase will be my final mid life crisis purchase prior to retirement and I'm done. Been fooling with Mustangs since 1969.

 

Shoot me a price.

i understand the MSRP thing. it has been discussed to death on the forums. i have been right in the middle of most of them. with that said, i think the car is still going to bring 15k or more over sticker. so if your thinking MSRP, then im no use to you. its one of those cars that we can make money on, unlike most that we sale next to nothing so that we get the chance at a shelby. what a crazy job i have.

but like i said earlier just depends on what there doing when this car gets here. if the market wont support 15k over then the car will sale for less. on the Ford dealer site dealers are still paying 10-12k over to other dealers. i guess im going to have to hope that there is a big demand for the red striped cars. only going to make them for less than a month and most dealers already have filled there allocation.

Good luck on finding a car for what you want to pay for it, if i can help in anyway please let me know. i really mean that about finding a car for the price you want to pay. if we hadnt recieved our GT500 last month we might have lost money, the car really saved us.

and for the record there only about 3k markup in the GT500
