If you were to purchase a second GT500, what color combo would you get ? Stripes ? No stripes ? Red interior ? I have a Black/Coupe/No Stripes/Red-Black Int. right now and my dad is getting one. What should he get ? Maybe look at production numbers for the rarest color made and get that (anyone know these) ? I know something like 5% of owners get stripe delete for top and 5% for sides. Anyone ?

Thanks

Ford says in their Marketing Strategy
Convert 30% Stripe Delete (sides C /V) 10% Over top delete Coup 5%
Sirius 15% Shaker 1000 15% Nav system 15 % This is all the low #s
Grabber Orange is probably low color on the pole. Do you want rare or what
most people are choosing ? What do YOU like ? Myself in order White , Red,
Blue. Hope that helps

Roll on down on this page and @ the bottom you will find similar thread to this one. over several pages you will see a post from 07 Shelby. He is our insider and in the post he gives a sembalance of color break down.

According to info I have found, grabber orange makes up less than 6% of the GT500 color run. Stripe delete would make it even less. Ron Pratte laid down $648k for the 1st GT500 sold to the public @ Barrett Jackson last year. He had the car built grabber orange w/tungsten stripes w/all options. I love orange so it was a no brainer for me when I ordered my Shelby in the same color combo. I figured if it was good enough for Pratt's $648 Shelby it was good enough for me. Being in the business, I am always thinking of what cars will be worth after I buy them. By the way, Pratte is @ it again @ Barrett Jackson this week, laying down large $$$ for fine rides.....shoyoright

This is pretty easy for me.

I have a white w/ blue coupe.

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to order another last Thursday for msrp.

Ordered a black w/ white stripes vert. The Ford rep. said it will probably be one of the last ones built for 2007.

I don't know about that. I think I've got a lock on the last one built. :p

You may be right, but I hope not.

I hope you get your car 1st. It just wouldn't be right for a car ordered January 18th to come before yours. :eek:

I have Ebony With white stripes. My second will be white with blue stripes. It seems the price is beginning to creep up since the Barret Jackson auction.The dealers in california are getting in excess of $20000.00 OVER MSRP! What greed! I can see why ford is losing money big time. There dealerships are showing their true colors.:(

Grabber orange would be nice with the white stripes or no stripes would be very low production. The red / white or blue / white I would think is the top color choices. And you know the Red is faster Right ? :D
