I just bought my Bullitt thinking that the quote would be similar to a quote I got for a 1998 Camaro SS. No way.

I'm 30 yrs old, no tickets, and I'm getting quotes that range from $1200 to $1600 a year for 100/300.

Lesson learned, always get a quote before you buy a car!!!!!

I think it's the difference between the value of the 1998 (depreciation) and the 2001 that made the big difference there. And I agree, insurance is the bane of our existence.

There is nothing in the VIN,that shows whether the car is a base GT or a Bullitt option GT. My rate was the same as a GT. $390.00 @ 6 months.

I don't think that the insurance company cares whether or not it's a Bullitt. They just have a higher rate for Mustang GT drivers period.

When I went to get insurance at State Farm, I gave them the VIN, and they asked if it was a Bullitt. So some companies have rates for them.

I pay 68 bucks a month, 50/100

I'm 32 with a flawless driving record and it's about $1,300.00 a year for me.

State farm.

I'm making them rich. I have 4 vehicles insured with them now.

My '01 Bullitt is a Daily driver. Not sure how many miles a year I'm going to have on it.

Mus408, Are you sure? I thought the VIN proved it was a real Bullitt. I sure hope so.... :-B

Everybody's going on about having a perfect driving record.... well that isn't always a big selling point with the insurance companies. They know accidents happen, and they figure with your perfect driving record, no mattter how good of a driver you are .....statistically speaking, your due for an accident. I believe rates are based on where you live, and the loss ratio of that type of car.

Ray,I checked the VIN of a '01 GT 5 Spd,in the showroom,and it was the same,other than the serial no.,as the Bullitt. Only thing different is that shock tower Bullitt ID sticker. Ford should have had those numbers stamped in the VIN. But that is all water under the bridge now. As far as insurance rates.....pity my poor 20 yr.old college son. He just,I helped with the 0% deal,bought a 01 V6 Stang,and if he were listed as the main driver,would be paying $950 every 6 months! They don't give the kids a chance to get started on there own account. Wasn't that way for me in 1972! Had my own insurance,and car payments in my name,and had money to spare at 18,making 2 bucks an hour!

My insurance went up $33 a month. It's worth it to me - I would have payed triple that if I had too (though I wouldn't have been too happy about it!)

I live in VA am 31 and have a flawless driving record and with geico i pay 153 dollars a month which is 1836 dollars a year. Granted i have a 100 dollar deductible and my coverage is just about maxed but either way i am taking it in the a$$ for being my age and with my record. I also have my daily driver on geico which is a 95' ford probe 4 cylinder which is only costing me about 45 dollars a month for the same amount of coverage. One of these days when i have some time to kill i will call another company and see if they can beat geico and switch to them.

I wish I could have a rate that low :smile: Mine are $1200 every six months with a spotless record. Man I wish I was 25 year old yet, only 1 year a few months i keep telling myself.

I'm real surprised at the difference in the rates. I have State Farm...$401 every 6 months for it. Last year I got a quote (just for the heck of it) for a 2000 Corvette, the rate for me (31 - female) was only like $61 a month....

:smile:

Your rate is real similar to mine. I notice I have had a couple increases since June, very small though. I had to take a couple cars off to save a few bucks :smile: The 87 hasn't moved in 7 years and the 88 hasn't in over a year, they don't need insurance :smile:
