Earlier today, we showed you the Ford GT rejection letter, and we all had a good cry, together. As you know, though, even when a car company gets to decide who is worth the privilege of buying their car, some people must be getting good news, right? Happily, we’ve now managed to get samples of all the types of letters sent to potential Ford GT buyers, and they’re surprisingly good.

The letters are divided into two “phases.” Phase 2 letters cover people who were rejected, accepted, or waitlisted.

Phase 3 letters seem to cover more specific circumstances. They’re all technically rejections, but for whatever reason, Ford decided the people in those categories deserved a different letter than the stock Phase 2 rejection.

Here are the Phase 2 letters:

The Undesirable Client letter killed me—damn funny writing—well done.

Still, what a position for Ford to be in: too many customers begging to throw just under half a million dollars at them for the GT. Incredible.
