The fi­nal Fal­con GT is a sell­out – with a wait­ing list. Just days af­ter de­tails of the car were con­firmed, all 550 cars – in­clud­ing 50 of them cross­ing the Tas­man to New Zealand – were snapped up.

And there are some great sto­ries about ea­ger own­ers, in­clud­ing buy­ers who have de­manded ex­tra sup­plies of man­ual gear­boxes and those ask­ing for spe­cific build num­bers in­clud­ing 007, 017, 300, 302 and 351.

One col­lec­tor with a sta­ble of Fal­con GTs and an­niver­sary GTs – all build num­ber 40 – has re­quested build 40 of the GT F sedan. An owner of a clas­sic XY Fal­con GT with the build num­ber 75 has re­quested it again.

An­other col­lec­tor has bought a brand-new GT of ev­ery model since the EB Fal­con and has one as his daily driver. He cur­rently has 10 GTs, with most hav­ing build num­ber 22 – so there is no sur­prise in what he wants next.

Ford says there has been an ‘amaz­ing’ re­sponse to the fi­nal GT.

“The pas­sion and enthusiasm be­ing dis­played by our cus­tomers for these ve­hi­cles is a re­flec­tion of the pas­sion our de­sign and en­gi­neer­ing team have brought to the ta­ble in de­vel­op­ing and build­ing these cars,” says Bob Graziano.
