Question BULLITT Prices After MECUM

So, will BULLITT prices on all models take a bounce up or is the excitement of MECUM only shared by IMBOC members???

Will the frenzy bring people to Ford dealers to look at and buy remaining 2019 BULLITTs in stock?

Will everyone in the cold upper 48 forget the BULLITT buy Spring?

Opinions are like elbows...……...everyone has one...………..let's hear it!

Good question. But since I have absolutely zero interest in buying a new one...I haven't a clue. Only the guess that the auctions of collector cars have pretty well a zero effect on new or used car sales. The market has pretty well proven that the '01 and '08-'09 Bullitt Mustangs are NOT collector cars. So, two different sets of buyers and sellers.

I think they will be the same as they were, meaning.....not going to turn into any kind of investment any time soon.

They'll be worth more when piston engine gasoline powered cars have been gone for a while. When people marvel that it took hundreds of noise making moving parts to generate a paltry 400 foot-pounds of torque and a variety of plumbing to process air, fuel, exhaust and to keep it cooled, lubricated and clean burning.

People owning Bullitt’s as investments are better off selling their daily drivers and driving them. So
Many old guys are out of touch that people under 40 aren’t interested. When the baby boomers die off won’t be much of a demand.
There was a a zero mile 07 Shelby gt500 at
Mecum. Think was a no sale at 35 or 40. Sounds a like a great investment for the original purchaser

Mint original fox body mustangs are where the under 40 crowd is investing since that’s the car of their generation

The sale of ‘559 will have zero effect on sales of regular Bullitt’s new or pre-owned.

I believe that most modern cars will not reach collector status like some of the 60’s and 70’s muscle cars. One reason is because there just aren’t that many rare combinations like there were back then. Think of the big dollar cars at auction from that era and they are Mopar Hemi cars and Boss 429s, low volume Shelby’s and Cobras. Today there’s no real engine options, etc. so there just isn’t the rarity there used to.

This sale (actually the reveal and all the publicity up to the sale), in my opinion, has brought more positive awareness to the general population now. I don't think it will necessarily translate into immediate increases in value, but I do think that more people will want to talk to you about your car, regardless of the model!


It would appear that only the 1968 tribute cars command the premium as they have for a number of years.


I also think that of all the Bullitt Mustangs that would definitely be of higher value than the typical one are the 4 McQueen-numbered 2001s and the 1 JDRF 2019 Kona Blue car. I directly relate that to the low numbers. For some of us current Bullitt owners, the PP-numbered 2008s and 2009s probably fall into this category. For the 2091 models, there are PP and MP-numbered cars, so perhaps some of us will value them more highly.


Just keep driving them (at least sometimes)!

Like Tony said...………..I think that the MECUM car will generate interest but not sales. I'm sure when the car cruise season begins here (Western PA) in late April, early May, there will be folks who will recognize the BULLITT and talk about the 3.4 Million.

I plan to drive and enjoy my BULLITT. It's unique enough but not a super collectible.

At least its not a four door NASH.

Surely I am not a minority here. I believe that the 01 Bullitt will become a wildly successful collector car. Owners willing to sell their steed will realize massive profits! It will all happen about one month after I die...

Really, no car is a bastion of profit. I think we all can agree on that. Any collectible outside the special Bullitt Hero car, or similar, will never net a return on the investment of buying, maintaining, storing and insuring over time. It's fun to think it would, but basically it isn't going to happen. So, all these other numbered cars ought to be driven.

Are you saying my 1993 Escort S/W is not going to be worth a million dollars in the near future? The salesman said it would be a collector item in the future. I can't believe a salesman would steer me wrong.

O.K Jack...………….

Would you be interested in a 46 NASH Four Door that's needs work? I'm sure it will be the next "BUY" on the Haggerty list!

I have the sneaking suspicion that in 2048 when I'm 85 and #4111 is 40 years old, it will be worth about $35k, which is what I paid for it in 2008 brand new. Of course, inflation will have run the cost of everything else up, so that $35k will be worth about $17.5k in today's dollars...

Cars are terrible investments unless you have Jay Leno's or Elon Musk's money.
