Just got 2 back issues from Dec01.
They said it should be collectible
down the road. How long is down the
road? They said the performance mods
over th GT is what gives it the best
shot at collectibility, as well as
the fact they sold so quick.
Nice 3 page article with pictures.
1-800-745-9299 ext 5363 for back issues.
8 bucks for this mag.

Yeah, I read the same article. It went on to say that the Blue and Black one’s would be worth less than the Green ones. Hmm How about that. :wink:

I missed that.. I would think Black
and especially True Blue would be
more collectible.

Yeah, I guess those guys who bought a Blue or Black Bullitt thinking they would be worth more just because they were made in less numbers were wrong. Oh well.

Heck, I did not care what color it was. I was thankful to just find one as late in the year as I did, especially getting 0% APR for 5 years. If my Bullitt winds up being worth less because its black in 30 years, I won't care.
I also remember when people hated 2 door post '57 Chevys, now they are worth as much as hardtops. Only time will tell.

I LOVE MY BULLITT!!!!! And I didn't buy it thinking about what a collector item it would be years down the road. I couldn't care less what color it is (well maybe I wouldn't be so happy with it if it was pink). Bottom line.... These are some really cool cars. If you didn't buy it because you thought it was the coolest Mustang to come out of Ford Motor Company in quite a few years then you might want to get behind the wheel put it in fist gear push the far right pedal to the floor. That might just make the folks that are speculating about what it will be worth years down the road appreciate what they have now. No offense intended to anyone. I'm in total agreement with the fellow Bullithead who says "Drive it like you stole it"

Don't believe everything you read! I also keep seeing articles talking about how the Bullitt only puts out 265hp, and is not worth the extra money over the GT. That's funny because mine dynoed at over 279hp last Saturday, how about that!! :grin: :grin:

The color will make a difference but nothing significant I don't think (I have DHG). DHG will be more desirable probably because the '68 was DHG. What will make a significant differnce if you're worried about collectability is modifications.

Actually the article never made any mention
that the DHG Bullitts would be more collect-
ible than the True Blue or Black Bullitts.
Fastbullitt and I were just trying to get the
blue and black owners a little riled up.
I think the blacks and especially the blues
will be more collectible than the greens
based on fewer numbers made.

If I could have afforded it, I would have
bought one in each color!

Does the article/magazine worth the $8? Just wondering if it has a good article/information about the Bullitt.

Thanks.

Certain colors will always be worth more. A red GTO is always going to be worth more than a green one. Rarity doesn't always make a car more desireable. IMHO, the way the Bullitts have been bitting the dust lately, I would say that in 25-30 years, ANY Bullitt will be desireable.

This is a quote from Motor Trend so don't flame me:
"Don't even think about the True Blue or Black paint options: McQueen's 'Stang was Dark Metallic Green, baby, and that's all there is to it!"

Ask any serious car collector what "provenance" is and what it means to the value of an automobile. Nobody knows whether-or-not these cars will be highly sought after in the future, but don't bet the farm that just because there were less TB or Black, they will be more valuable. Maybe they will. But I also agree that collectors tend to value un-modified cars. The highest prices for 60's Muscle Cars are paid on factory original cars.

To DantheMan, It was worth 8 bucks to me
because I am on a vicious hunt for Bullitt
articles. I buy two of every magazine. One
magazine has the article cut out, then placed
in clear, acid free, plastic pages. These
are placed in a binder. This is my Bullitt
Portfolio. The second magazine is simply put
away.

I thought the info was O.K.
