Ford announces limited edition of the 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition
2022 marks the final year of production for the impressive Ford GT. Ford sends the car off brilliantly with a limited edition Heritage Edition version that pays homage to the 1964 Ford GT prototypes. Since its unveiling several years ago, the Ford GT has been offered in several heritage editions, typically offering racing liveries. emblems that adorned the flanks of winning Ford racing cars in the past.
These Ford GT Heritage Edition cars have always been modern interpretations of iconic cars of the past. The 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition is painted Wimbledon White and sports a triple racing stripe. The special edition car also exhibited carbon fiber behind carbon fiber wheels painted in antimatter blue. In addition, the seats are covered with Alcantara Lightspeed Blue.
The car will be on display at Monterey Car Week alongside the only surviving 1964 Ford GT prototype. This surviving Ford GT prototype is the GT / 105 chassis and comes dressed in its original livery. The Heritage Edition car also features an exposed carbon fiber front splitter, side sills, mirror rods, engine louvers and a rear diffuser. All components are finished in glossy carbon fiber.
Brembo brake calipers are painted silver with black graphics and the wheels are fitted with black lug nuts. Carbon fiber components are also used inside the car, including carbon fiber door sills, lower pillars, matte carbon fiber console and registers.
The instrument panel is upholstered in ebony leather and Lightspeed blue Alcantara. While the Heritage Edition in the pictures is a pre-production prototype, it’s likely the paint scheme it wears will reach production. It closely mimics the original livery of the 1964 prototype. As good as the ’64 Heritage Edition is, it is certainly not as eye-catching as the Gulf Livery Heritage Edition cars of 2020 and 2019.
