Last January Ford pulled the wraps off an all new Ford GT concept car, announced the car would be built, and stunned the automotive world. The car has been a hotly followed and discussed topic ever since, and there’s a waiting list for what will be a super-limited high dollar production run of these cars.
Nearly a year later, Ford has announced how enthusiasts, especially younger ones can get their hands on a free Ford GT of their own. So if the predicted $400,000 price tag is too much, maybe this is your answer.
At the 2016 North American International Auto Show, the Blue Oval will be handing out free 14-piece snap together Ford GT models. Each model bears a stamp on the bottom marking it as one of the auto show kits. The more detailed 28-piece version of this model will go on sale by Revell in April, for $14.99.
These kits have been a popular part of NAIAS swag in the past several years. In 2014 show-goers got an all-new Mustang kit. Last year’s kit was the all-new Ford Raptor, and now this year it’s the GT. “Our annual Revell Make ‘n Take model kit program has become a fun-filled auto show tradition,” said Mark Bentley, Ford Licensing manager. “Letting kids build their own Ford GT is a great way to introduce them to the Ford brand and create new enthusiasts.”
