Though the GT was produced for a number of years, the two up for auction are very rare. Ford kept most of its early-build models, including these two, which were used by the automaker for promotional purposes and have never been registered to an individual.
Speaking with AutoWeek, organizers of the auction have revealed that the cars are expected to sell for between $150,000 and $200,000. Some of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
One of the cars is a red with white livery and has 4,065 miles on the odometer, while the other is white with blue livery and has 7,765 miles on the clock. The cars are basically stock, which means they are powered by a supercharged 5.4L V8 pumping out 550hp (410kW) and 500lb-ft (677Nm) of torque.
Ford built a total 4,038 GT supercars before production ended in 2006.
