Let’s get the most important new exterior style feature for the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition out of the way first. And that’s that the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition features auto racing’s most famous paint scheme – the Golf Oil-sponsored Heritage Blue and Heritage Orange paint scheme of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-Winning GT40. All 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition models will feature this paint scheme, to go along with all-new exposed carbon fiber accents that can be found both inside and outside the model. But, as we mentioned in our introduction, the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition is getting a special two-year run. That’s because the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition will feature No. 9 graphics on the hood and doors, as well as a ghosted image on the interior door panels, whereas the 2020 Ford GT Heritage Edition will feature No. 6 graphics. This is because the 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40 had to switch numbers.
The exterior of the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition isn’t the only impressive part of the all-new model. Inside the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition, you’ll find Ebony Alcantara-wrapped seats, instrument panel, pillars, headliner and steering wheel, to go along with contrasting blue and orange stitching for the seats and steering wheel. Furthermore, high-gloss dark stainless appliqués accent the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace.
