Good luck with the BULLITT hunt!! I bought a 2009 in May (11,300 miles) . I paid a bit over Kelly Blue Book, but not much.
Keep in mind there are a lot of variables in buying a BULLITT. A lot of folks give you the "IT's ALL ORIGINAL" talk. That's fine if you buy it, never drive it, just park it and admire the purchase.
If it's all original, then it needs new tires and maybe tire pressure sensors, it needs the coolant changed, it needs an oil change, brake fluid change, air filter, cabin filter, paint work, etc. If a FORD Dealer is selling, maybe you can negotiate a few maintenance items in the price. Go over the car carefully....little things can cost big money to fix.
Whatever you pay...add another $2000 to the cost of initial ownership if the car is all original. Yes, these are collector cars if you are a BULLITT fan. Like one of our form members says.....they are old and slow.....most four bangers in 2018 have 300 plus horsepower. In my opinion, the 08/09 is the closest image of the 1968 car.
To me my BULLITT is very special and I will pay what it costs to keep it in tip top shape. Or, buy a new one for $50K.....
Good luck!!! I hope you buy/find the BULLITT
IT MUST BE THE GREEN!!!!
