After two years of hiding in the shadows and creeping almost daily through this forum I decided to make an account.

I spent two years searching for an allocation that was priced right and allowed me to be able to spec the car how I wanted. My dream came true yesterday when I took delivery of this beauty after a 9 month wait.

2018 GT350R #JR181
Ruby Red
Black Roof

Photos are from a gathering with a group of local guys, the only other 350R in East TX was present.

That's cool, only asking to gauge current market. Beautiful car.

I know that came in under market value for my area. Grapevine Ford outside Dallas still has one left, but just sold a black w/ stripes for $15,000 over last week. A guy traded in his brand new AMG GTR on it, not sure the valuation on that car, that could of played into it.

Beautiful car, congrats on finally getting her home! I hope to be there in a few weeks... can't wait! I'm at 8.5 months, so it looks like my wait will be the same as yours.

I'm not sure I'd be ready the next day after I took delivery to show it, I plan on PPF ASAP, tint before I put the front splitter on (my tint guy has a somewhat scrape-worthy entryway into his shop), then my detail process once that's all done. :) Props to you for getting it to a show so quick!

Great showing of exotics there also, rare to see a Scud at most shows!:thumbsup:

Please don't read anything into my query. You did good. I like to keep my eye on the market, that's all. Thanks for sharing

There's something about Ruby Red, it's got that right amount of understated class without looking mundane. Great looking car, congrats.

Car is stunning! And now that your wait has paid off, it's time to put that gorgeous car on tour!

Register ASAP for the Legacy Bank annual Shelby Show and bring that beauty to Plano. https://www.legacytexas.com/campaign/shelbycarshow/9th-shelby-car-show.html


Also, please join the North Texas GR350 Owners FB group. Tell them Dave (LB R) invited you.

And plan on bringing it to Dallas Cars & Coffee May5.

Outstanding looking R model and I certainly like your color combination as I have exactly the same color combination as well and regularly get a great deal of compliments on it all of the time just as you probably have already.

Just so you know when that new color choice originally came out in early 2016 for the 2017MY it was the personal color choice of Jamal Hameedi who is the Global Performance Vehicle Chief Engineer for the Ford Motor Company with his 2017 R model being built in February 2016 as a Pilot Production car with his being chassis number HR001 and have attached a few pictures of this cool car at its new home.

Besides the terrific look of your car the all around performance of your GT350R is simply outstanding and just a great choice in HP automobiles.
