Dan, sounds like the cars that you had driven the last few years may be some of the same cars that I drove at the NA Track Tour that took place at Sebring in October 2015.Most of these cars are regular production 2016 Track Package cars. I've been to
more than one of the GT350 Track Attack programs.
Beat on? Eh, not really. Driven like they were designed. Might I add they were cared for very well.I’m curious why anyone would want one of those cars.
I know for a fact some had issues because my #11 lost oil pressure with just a couple laps to go at the end of the day. I could not find out what the outcome was for that car.
I look at this like buying a rental car. You know they were beat on.
I think that these were regular production cars. I know they did receive a PP or a TT that the FPRS converted into an all out track car.Agreed that these cars were driven very hard but purchasing one of these Pre-Production cars at the right price would be pretty cool in my opinion.
Obviously these vehicles were serviced on a regular basis by either a local Ford dealership for the big stuff and on site track maintenance personnel for the smaller stuff.
No question that a lot of patina would come with one of these vehicles and hopefully FP would still have some documentation that could be supplied for any given vehicle purchased.
Easy to get an Oasis Report for any of these vehicles which should show any warranty work done by a Ford dealership and also easy to check out to see if the engine and/or tranny are original to each car.
I get where you are coming from but I also like the idea of owning a Pre-Production GT350 that had some interesting history, but as you suggested buyer beware.
These were taken care of very well, all have Watson Roll Bars, APR wheel studs andBeat on? Eh, not really. Driven like they were designed. Might I add they were cared for very well.
And like I said, plan on an engine refresh...... at least thats what I'd do. One of those would be a perfect track car and if you can get them at the right price, it would be a no brainer.
G0082 was the 2016 Track Package GT 350 I drove in June.Dan, sounds like the cars that you had driven the last few years may be some of the same cars that I drove at the NA Track Tour that took place at Sebring in October 2015.
The cars back then at Sebring were a mixture of 2016 PP MP Track Pack and also 2016 PP and MP R model cars.
I do remember seeing a 2016 TT R model but it was not running the day that I was there.
Of course with the launch of the 50th Anniversary 2015 GT350/R cars in July 2015 there were no Pre-Production examples built as Ford decided to build many of the 2016 GT350/R Pre-Production units prior to the 2015 cars being assembled.
Based on your response it sounds like that some of the 95 Pre-Production GT350R's from 2016 are still around.
