I've seen it mentioned both ways in press articles. What is the correct (or preferred) way to refer to the model?

I'm assuming Mustang Bullitt, simply because it's a Mustang, and what type? It's a Bullitt. People call it Bullitt Mustang simply because some people prefer saying the type first.

I agree. :smile:

Some of us (me) are lazy and call it the "B" in these forums and when conversing with other Bullittheads (Bheads?)...but when conversing with civilians (non-Bullittheads) I have most often heard Mustang Bullitt...and I like to add "GT" to that because in reality it is a type of GT. :nerd:

Also, there is a certain Bullitthead (chilli bullitt) that will go into an EXTREMELY FAST 15 second complete technical run-down of the 2001 B. It's quite amazing to listen to but after you've heard it 20 times within an hour (at car shows) you tend to tune him out. :lol:

Make: Ford
Model: Mustang
Trim: GT
Option Package: Bullitt Package

The window sticker says Mustang Bullitt, doesn't it?
Yes. (sort of)

It states "Mustang" in large font then to the right in smaller font "2001 Bullitt GT Coupe".

Click on the pic below to enlarge it.

Not sure how the 2008 Bullitt window sticker will be configured but I would think it would be similar.

Mustang Bullitt is the Bullitt edition Mustang built by Ford.

Bullitt Mustang is the '68 of the movie :badgrin: :badgrin: :D

It's a Bullitt, plain and simple.

if pressed further, I'll say that it based on a Mustang GT, but improved...

Depends on the audience.

Ford calls it the "Mustang Bullitt" (like they do DHG and 3rd Gen.... oh never mind! :wink:)

Among people in the know, I call it the "Bullitt".

When new people ask "what is it?", if I say Mustang first, I see them jump to a conclusion. If I say Bullitt, they are :confused: thinking 'a bullet' or that I'm referring to its speed.

So now I introduce it to newbies as the "Steve McQueen Mustang from the movie Bullitt".

I'd say the 01 is a Mustang Bullitt because it has a GT badge on the fender, but the 08 is a Bullitt Mustang because it is much closer to the original :tongue:

Ooops..I think I just said some fightin' words :bigguns: :wink:

It's a Mustang Bullitt, but I prefer (correct or not) to call it a Bullitt Mustang.

Very simple. It's a BULLITT!When folks are standing, slack-jawed and staring, and ask, "What IS that?", I simply smile and say, "It's a BULLITT." If they inquire further, I adjust the collar on my turtleneck sweater and add, "It's the STEVE MCQUEEN SPECIAL!" And that's that. :lol:
