The Petersen Automotive Museum To Auction Off A Rare Public Allocation For The Ford GT

Are you dreaming of buying a new Ford GT? This may be your last and final chance to own this rare car

The Petersen Automotive Museum will be holding its 25th anniversary gala on Saturday, October 5, 2019. As part of the event, the Petersen will auction off one of the last public allocations for a new Ford GT. As you may know, not just anyone could or can buy a Ford GT as all 1,350 units were allocated. For those with the necessary means, this could be their last chance to buy a new Ford GT.

The winning bidder will be entitled to select whichever trim of the GT they desire, from the sold-out ultra-limited-edition Heritage Edition or Carbon Series to custom bespoke paint options and more. We can almost hear the register spinning.

The big and real reason why the famed Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is auctioning the Ford GT allocation is to benefit its foundation. The latter annually provides more than 100,000 children and teens with STEAM-based education and programs. The money also helps support the preservation of the museum’s collection of over 300 vehicles and the museums operations overall.

The charity sale will be facilitated by RM Sotheby’s at this gala. Among the attendees will be Bill Ford, executive chairman of Ford Motor Company as the Ford Motor Company will be honoured at the event.

Bidding for the Ford GT allocation will occur between 8:30 and 8:45 pm on October 5th.
