I know this is going to seem trivial but is there no glove box lamp or under hood lamp on the Bullitt? For a "Premium GT Plus package" this seems kind of cheap on the part of Ford. Both my old 80's mustangs had this and I miss them.(really the glove box lamp)

I agree with you. My 94 GT had a hood light, glove box light and the visor mirrors had lights. I would gladly pay a few bucks more to have had these lights in the car. Some cost accountant probably got a promotion for saving $4 bucks per car by taking these items out.

FORD is really starting to suck in my book. i opened the hood at the track on friday night, and guess what, NO DAMM LIGHT. i put my time slips in the glove box, guess what NO DAMM LIGHT. My girlfried looked into the mirror on her side, and guess what again, NO DAMM LIGHT.

More lighting venting!!!
The first night i had the car, i wanted to put the windows down, need less to say, the window controls dont light up, the whole time i was thinking "it sure would be nice if these lit up like other cars"

I dont like the fact that the dash has white lights, and the console has green lights.

Why dont the cruise controls light up, that is something else that you must master in the daytime, in order to think about using is at night.

all of these cost very little when done in bulk, they have the parts they are in production on other cars. just like they made the Modular motor, thy could have continued the idea and made the modular interior.

There's such a thing as taking a good thing too far. The lack of lighting being retro? No. Cheap? Yes. I wonder if they considered bias-ply tires for the Bullitt. The '68 had 'em. :grin:

I believe that the harness connections are there for all the lighting and each courtesy light is attached to a wire with a plug. We should be able to order all the courtesy lights from someone like STANGPARTS.COM for less money than we can get them from Ford. Then all we have to do is plug them in. If they don't send the mounting screws just buy them at the local HW store. Should be fairly easy.

you can only take the retro thing but so far. they are saving money on items that we all have grown to love. If that is the case, how will the thunder bird be. is it carburated etc. they could have done a better job. and they say "quality is job 1" what ever.

Mods to our cars are great. But we shouldn't have to do the things that are common items found in modern cars these days.

Does quality equal more options or does quality equal having what you got put together as good as possible? More options and features in my opinion means a better value for your money if your paying the same price.

This is not flame to anyone. If we are smart shoppers we would know what our car has and doesn't have BEFORE we bought it. Maybe we should have paid my attention.

I dropped the glove box door and looked for a connection like bullittman615 suggested. Didn’t find a thing. Does anyone know or have they looked at a standard GT to see if there are courtesy lights on them? I think Ford just wanted to pinch every dollar out of their cars. Here’s another thing that’s disappeared…go look for a passenger side key door lock. I'm not trying to slam the Bullitt here, I think the car is really great. Nothing like cruising along listing to the exhaust note and glancing at the hood scoop for coolness factor. I just wished they hadn’t got to this level of penny pinching. As far as seeing a Bullitt before buying, it was daytime and who thinks about lights and locks when the car is so awesome looking the very first time you see it! All I could think about was that I actually had a chance to own a car like this. Man, what a rush that was!

I know what you mean.....when you have that adrenaline going its tuff to look at all the details. I'm happy with my Bullitt, I mean hey....less options, less weight...faster times.

No 2001 Mustangs have a glovebox light or an underhood light. You will not find takeouts to just plug these options back in. It would require hardwiring the lights in yourself. The mounting points may still exist for the glovebox light. I would suggest junkyard hunting for the parts.
Only Convertible's, Cobra Coupes, and Export Coupes get the lighted Visor/Vanity Mirrors.

I popped in fog lights. The wiring connectors are there at the front and to the blank switch in the console. At least that was real easy.
