...really just leftovers from the 94-98's? That would kind of bother me. I thought they were "unique." It's like "hey, here's a pile of c-pillars we were going to chunk, lets use them on the Bullitt!"

They are an adaptation of the C-pillar from that time period. The cut line that is angled toward the front is sharper than the original '94-'98s.

I'll accept that! :grin: If you look at Dennis Baker's sig, they look identical. Someone I run with had mentioned they were the same as well.

My information comes from Scott Hoag, formerly of Ford, now of MRT.

Yep, one of the many differentces between a Bullitt and a GT. The "unique" C-pillars. There were several Bullitts that came off the line with both GT c-pillars and some with one GT c-pillar and one Bullitt c-pillar. So check yours out, maybe you have a factory boo-boo. :confused:

Mine are normal (for Bullitts) but I had heard that they were no more than the 94-98 Mustang C-pillar. So far as I can tell, mine isn't one of the anomolous Bullitts.

I own a 97 GT in addition to #562. I see no difference between the parts. The cut line angle appears to be the same.

there IS a Bullitt spec "C" pillar listed and it is the same part that was used on 2003/04 Mach 1's
You are correct!

I found a place that has very great information on the 01 Mustang Bullitt. At the top of this very page there is silver button with Bullitt Archives on it, click and enjoy tons of information. It has a section called what makes a Bullitt a Bullitt, complete with Bullitt parts.

Okay, I know about the Mach c-pillars, I'm also very aware of the archives. However, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, is it not a duck? Even if it says "horse" on it? I don't doubt Ford tweaked the part for the Bullitt, but really, how much, other than updating the part number? Besides, I'm just trying to make conversation and maybe have a few people think about it. Geez.

Now I am unsure?!

Here are some pics showing C-pillars.

After some visual comparison in the pics above they look different to me.

I see it now. The angle is the same, but the downward sweep on the Bullitt is straighter than on the SN95. The older car has a bit more curve to it.

I concur with K, the Bullitt's is more angular, while the GT's is rounded. My .02, please no change back...

personally, I think they look totally different. A c-pillar,is a c-pillar,is a c-pillar, same dimensions and size, however the appearances are totally different.
