PB2-1 – “The Sign-off” The Last Preproduction Build Ford GT – Built May, 2005. Being the last pre-production Ford GT’s PB2-1 was the final word in development before regular production began. This beautiful and unmolested Ford GT was the very last preproduction Ford GT built by Ford. This was the one and only and last car to test the GT’s design and engineering before the team began building customers cars. PB2-1 had the most important role in acquiring final sign off. It was used to fine tune manufacturing and prove the electrical system was 100% before the start of the production.
The mileage accumulation was part of the final sign off which PB2-1 certainly did with a current odometer close to 50,000 miles.
After the success of completing the testing duties PB2-1 was transferred to SVT engineering team to be used as a program car while the group explored the possibility of creating the next generation Mark II which was the second version of the Ford GT, this program and car never made it to production, PB2-1 is wearing many of the prototype parts from this program. Exhaust manifolds, heat shields with Mark II Imprint and the “Ford GT” Embossed fuel filler cap and a smaller size supercharger pulley to increase super charger boost (This pulley later became the Ford racing Pulley)
