Hello One And All,

I know that what I am now going to say is not going to be popular, but I must nonetheless state my opinion. I hereby declare that I believe that the color breakdown numbers given by Mr. T are WRONG. Make no mistake, I am not casting any dispersions on Mr. T. In fact, I believe he is a wealth of otherwise-rock-solid information about 2001 Mustang Bullitts. I just don't happen to believe that there were 700+ True Blue Bullitts made. Further, I think that the production number of Dark Highland Green Bullitts he stated is WAY WAY WAY too conservative. In a nutshell, then, I believe there are far more DHG cars, some fewer black ones and far fever true blue ones than he stated existed. Mr. T is my hero.....it is just that in this ONE case, I believe his source(s) supplied him data that just was not - when all was said and done -accurate. If I am proven to be the one that is wrong then I will be the first to graciously admit it. My thoughts here are based on absolutely nothing more than gut feelings after personally visiting dozens of Ford lots and spending literally hour-after-hour searching Ford dealers' inventories via the web the past several months when I was investigating the Bullitt prior to my ultimate acquisition of one. Time will tell - it always does - if Mr. T is correct or if I am (or neither). Does anyone else think my way or am I alone on this one?

Thanks!

I read an email from Art Hyde and he had the colors broken down by percentage
TB 16%
B 35%
DHG 49%

using those percentages now that we know the final amount it should have been

True Blue 893 or 16%
Black 1954 or 35%
Dark Highland Green 2735 or 49%

Instead Mr T is saying that the new percentage is

True Blue 723 or 13%
Black 1818 or 33%
Dark Highland Green 3041 or 54%
SO the final numbrs according to Mr T show that TBs and Blacks did better and the DHG people got screwed. Sounds about right to me....

Well.. Mr. T has provided info direct from the "Horses Mouth" as it were. He posted some time ago that he was going to check with his superiors about posting the production info. His earlier numbers were speculation and he said so. Final numbers would change as demand dictated. Also.. most Bullitts were special ordered so the number and colors would be impossible to accurately plot until the end.
Now as to your claims.. Is this just speculation on your part or is there info or data to back it up?
If so please post your contrary figures and we'll put it up for debate.. Otherwise the numbers we've been given by Mr. T are going to hold solid.

Hey...if you got one in the color you wanted then it's a win win for all of us.

Isn’t funny, how the True Blue is starting to take on a most desired status, when probably, it was made in such low numbers, because it was the least desired of the three colors!

Don’t get me wrong, I think they all look good, but DHG was the most desired color by most of the buyers.

I don't think TB was the least desired color, just for this model maybe. The true # is how many GT's in 2001 were TB?

Yeah, that's what I meant. TB for the Bullitt was probably the least desired color.

Maybe I've got something wrong with me, but I searched out a blue one, because I liked it best. I am delighted to see it is the rarest of the breed. To anyone who's never seen one, they are almost like a Mystic Cobra in direct sunlight, in that they look blue from one angle, a dark purplish color from another. It is kind of a striking effect, IMHO.

Nasty,
Your wife is getting her prints all over the finish. Seems she could do with a little disipline. You might have to cut her off for a week until she learns.

All I can say is that these are verified #'s. I checked multiple times and also compared them to another group within the company that computed them. They matched.
