Or should I just leave it since it is different maybe one of a kind?
I would leave it as is and throw the new "Bullitt" cap in the trunk, still in its plastic packaging. You have a "one of a kind" Bullitt, not unlike a postage stamp with a bi-plane flying upside down. Leave it alone. People really will wonder what you're driving now: Is it a 6-cyl.? Is it a GT? Is it a Bullitt? What IS it? Is it a bird? Is it a plane?....:rotfl: :rotfl: :hyper2:
P.S. Be sure to KEEP the Ford dealer documentation, stating the "problem" and how they "corrected" it by ordering you a new cap!

You may have to talk them in to letting you just walk away with the Bullitt cap and keeping the other on the car. Most likely they will want to change it out, and claim they have to get paid for it by Ford.
This is one of those times having a good relationship with your dealer pays off.

RC,

You speak the Truth.

If it is a Warranty Claim ??? And this is, the Dealer has to HOLD the part in Question in case Ford wants to see it for themselves.

We HOLD Warranty Items for Acura for (8-Weeks) to Inspect before we get rid of them.

If the Dealer does not have the Part in Question, Ford will CHARGE the (Complete) RO "Repair Order" Back on the Dealer.

How do I know these things ??????

I work for a Dealer.

We have noticed this weekend that 38 has one exhaust tip that is smooth and one that is rolled in. Since it keeps popping the fuse that runs the power mirrors we have to take in to the dealer anyway.

Wasn't there a report a while back about some dealers building their own Bullitts when they were unable to get them ordered from the factory? I'm not saying that it is but is it possible that maybe this is one of those Bullitts? Does the steering wheel and gauges have crosshairs?

Personally I would keep the one that's on the car right where it is!! I think that a factory installed mistake of this nature is pretty cool. The Bullitt caps are on eBay all the time and really aren't that expensive. I would pick one up, online or at the dealer, & just save it!! I wish that happened to me!

+1 that's what I was going to say, go on e-bay and get yourself one and hang on to it. then you don't have to deal with the stealership.

Well I sure hope it is a real Bullitt the window sticker looks real ????
Jay... its very likely that your car is the real deal!!

Though its difficult to see from the pictures you provided links to it looks like there's no evidence of fender emblems and it would be tough for a dealership to hide things like holes in the fenders without going to the expense of replacing the two front fenders. Can you post more pics of your Saleen powered Bullitt?

I can't see your photobucket picture here at worked, they are all blocked, however: While anyone can get a Bullitt gascap off the 'bay and make a fake Bullitt, if your car has the engine brace with the Bullitt #, it is real.
