Hi - first time on this site and a bit naive. How do I get one? Seems like local dealers are not taking orders. Also, anyone know how to avoid huge "over MSRP" price. Dealers are all to happy to tell me 10-20K over. Thanks.

Check eBay and Auto trader for dealers that still have them. I would expect to pay a premium especially since they are carefully limiting production. I had to pay a premium for mine but there was someone in line after me that would have paid it if I didn't. I'm glad I got mine.

We will have our "shop car" up for sale this summer. It will be a more than 10k over but will have a built motor, upgraded clutch, upgraded fuel system, and around 1000+rwhp.

I have an avalanche grey, black stripe tech package & cover for 7,500 over. Buyer backed out.
Obviously your original buyer came to his senses as MSRP deals on these cars are appearing daily on various Ford enthusiast sites. You are looking for some other fool to bend over. ADM(sucker tax) is money thrown into the street and will never be recovered on resale. The depreciation on any new car is steep, paying over sticker makes this situation profoundly worse.

Guess there are a lot of "fools" out there who have money and who are willing to spend it to get a car others aren't going to have. I have a lot of happy customers who paid "sucker tax" and even some other people who are mad at me for not taking their higher offers. Most GT350s are being sold in this are for 8-12 over. That's the market. If someone is interested they can PM me and I'm willing to talk about it. The market is dictating the "sucker tax" just like it dictates 98+ percent of our sales at well under MSRP.

I'm not going to call anyone names. I paid the sucker tax. I wanted the car. I just wish Ford would have priced the car more realistically rather than claiming it was so much less than a Z28 when it's actually not.

I hope you two children are done arguing. Who cares who paid what for whatever. This is an enthusiasts site and not a debate forum. Bottom line, anyone who buys a GT350 loves it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Applejack, calm down ! Dealers have a right to get what the market will bear. Yes some a bit more greedy than others but remember this is a very low production car, 2036, US., in 2016 to be exact.
The GT350 is far from the typical rarity scenario I have seen before as this car is truly unique and incredibly well engineered. Most of the members on this forum are very happy to even get one and are willing to pay a premium. I believe this car will hold if not increase in value over time. This is far from "any new car " as you stated.
Let people enjoy the experience.
BTW I am not a dealer, I am a 61 year old Mustang guy waiting for my car this Spring. And yes paid a modest premium.

I agree with the guys who find this to be a very unique offering from Ford. Refreshing to see a Mustang with emphasis on cornering ability after 8 years of the brute force of the GT500. With that said keep in mind that this car at these prices will be purchased by a very small number of people. There are dealers who currently have five GT350s in stock and looking for a home. The market saturation point at the sticker price is going to be a low number of deliveries. Ford did not develop this car to be made in numbers less than what can clear the market. The manufacturers goal here is not to provide a chosen few with a rare, collectable, classic. Anyone who believes that these cars constitute any type of investment is playing a costly fools game and is in for a nasty, hard landing.

Agreed, Will depend on 17's production and if Ford produces in 18 which I assume they will not.
Selfishly I hope values hold within $5000 of MSRP over the next few years. Low mileage examples may hold at MSRP. Boss's held up relatively well, this car should do atleast as well if not better.
Other opinions ?
BTW we can tell our wives its an investment. Not that they buy that.....

I find my former daily driver, a 2004 GTO, sitting in the driveway collecting dust. I put springs, struts/shocks, bushings and factory 18" wheels among many other mods to that car. It is now so hopelessly obsolete that I guess I'll just get rid of it. It bothered me to pay a premium, but I don't regret it. Now to figure a way to install a trans cooler and I'll be all set.
