Hey all,

I'm a Mustang nut who's never actually owned one (unless you count the '82 Capri 6-cylinder I had...)

Well, I'm 25 and my insurance is a bit cheaper now. I am thinking about buying a Bullitt.

It has 7,500 miles. It was built on April 4th, 2001. I think this means it is a really early car. Can anyone estimate what number car it is? I haven't been able to look at it yet, but I have it reserved until Monday (I'm currently working in Toronto, but I live in Detroit and that's where the car is).

Color is the requisite Dark Hyland Green.

The car number should be under 100. If the car is in good shape, that price is great.

The price sounds great, but with a build of around 4/1/01 I would expect the number to be under 500. I have a DHG #289 with a build date the same. :-B

$18,000 sounds like a great deal...Check it out carefully and BUY IT! Of course I wouldn't part with mine for that price.

Hey, I thought we were going to keep the resale values up on the Bullits really inflated??? :grin: :grin: :grin:

If you can get a Bullitt for $18,000--that's a great price. In fact, that's way below what Edmunds would say is even a dealer trade-in price. Either you have an extremely motivated seller (bought too much than he could afford) or it might have been in an accident. Even though it's less than 1 year old, a lot can happen in a year and I'd have a mechanic do an inspection for that price.

That is a very early build date, # 353 was put together on 4/18. Great price, be sure to get the carfax report. If any insurance claims were made on the car it will show up. If it has been repaired get a good paint and body man to look it over. Those guys can see things invisible to us mere mortals. I hope you buy the car. Everyone should have this much fun driving.

Just Buy it already !!!
Sounds too good to pass up, certainly after you've done all the necessary checks!
You'll never look back!

I would have loved to have paid $18,000 for mine. Sounds like your on to a great deal. As posted earlier have it checked out thoroughly though.

Ok, turns out that it is #15. Was a West Coast press car.

The only downside is that this car does not have a Mach 460 with the 6-disc changer. I kind of had my heart set on that!

Does anyone else out there have a Bullitt with the Dual Media (CD/Cassette) setup? As far as I know, the CDx6/Mach 460 was the only option on these vehicles other than color...

Even without the 460 (which isn't that great) buy the damn thing!!!!

Hey Craig, I don't have the optional Mach 460 in #3618. Do like I did - find any GT with the base radio/cassette combo and see if you think you can stand it. I had the Mach 460 in my '95 GT and do miss it a little, but the exhaust note more than makes up for it on my Bullitt. :grin: Plus, like they said, you can always add a new sound system later. Buy the car and enjoy!! Just realize that being a "press car" it has been run through the paces, and pretty hard. I would still buy it though. Good luck!
