With its mid-engine powerplant and era-bending styling, the Ford GT was a fitting reincarnation of Ford's Ferrari-fighting race car from the 1960s, but it didn't get any better than the Heritage model done up in the iconic Gulf Oil racing livery. Next month, a flawless example of the Ford GT Heritage will roll across the auction block at Auctions America in Fort Lauderdale (March 14-16), and it's expected to fetch an estimated $400,000 when the gavel falls.
