I know, hard to believe, but true. Circumstances require that I sell my Bullitt. I have reviewed all options and this is the only one that works. Sad part is, in another year it won't make any difference. Then I will be the one on the market for a previously owned Bullitt.

I have returned #0017 to complete stock with the exception of the quarter window louvers and hood struts. It has just over 7,000 miles and is in perfect condition. As most of you know, I race sprint cars and have been a racer for decades. I care for this car like it is a show car. It comes with an extended warrantee and service contract. It has a balance owed to Ford Credit which must be paid before the title can be released. Call me for arrangements regarding payoff and shipping. 520-647-4192.

While this is not a "desperation" sale, I would be willing to accept any reasonable offer. I have plenty of equity in the car, so that isn't an issue.

I'm sorry to hear it, i know the passion you have for your Bullitt. If it won't be an issue in a year, it's too bad there isn't something else you could sell instead.

Good luck with the sale

It's NEVER a good time to sell something you cherish. Thanks.

The choice was my Bullitt or the wife's Mustang. For over forty years, I have been first. Now it's her turn. She was willing to sell hers, but I'm not going to do that to her again. It'll work out; it always does.

Ratman, hope everything works out for you guys. You and your wife sound like you have a really good bond.

You're right, everything will work out.

By the way, my bro-in-law was also a 'Pibber,' Cua Viet, VN, '68-'69. Retired Navy E-9. If he and my sis were on the mainland, bet he'd be interested in the Bullitt. They love Mustangs!

My wife would support selling hers and keeping the Bullitt. Back in '67 when I got home from 'Nam, I traded her 1st car (Blue Mustang) for my DHG GT390. She finally got her blue Mustang back, and I'm not going to do it to her again. She has put up my my military career, race cars, motorcycles, excursions through some of the finest bars in the world, guns (My hobby), and generally my crappy selfish attitude for over forty years. She deserves to be treated well. If had a regret, it would be that, starting with her blue '65, I've always put my own wants first. In spite of her encouragement to sell her new blue one, I'm just not gonna do it. I'm not a "good" guy for this, she just deserves it so much that I'd have to be a bigger jerk than usual to burn her again. BUT, I did consider it!

Look at it this way. She has come to expect it. Why change now????? :lol: I hear you though. My wife has put up with me for 20 years. Sometimes you have to give back a little.

Your older and wiser - I think things will work out in the end.
I had a sort of the same problem and I ended up selling about 90% of my guns that I had collected over the years and my wife never said a word about why I had to have 5 .45's. I owe her alot, with the sale I was able to get her the car she wanted and my Bullitt.

I think many of us have been down this road. I did the same thing years ago. As a cop and ex-military, I had my priority set on my weapons collection; however, it is not the same nowadays. I retain what I need, sold the rest. My spouse is the most important thing to me now.


...well MAYBE the Bullitt... :wink:
