I just found this site and man it has a lot of info. I have been looking for a good Bullitt site since I got mine in September. I have a couple of jeewizz questions..... what does the DHS in front of some of your serial numbers stand for? What is the actual HP of the Bullitt engine? I have read from 265 to 280. Any members from Portland Or. area?

Hello Bullitt 4075,
I am from Portland and the DHG (not s) stands for the color of the car, "Dark Highland Green. When in September did you get your Bullitt? I bought mine Sept. 29th. Where in Portland are you? Welcome aboard!!

I bought mine from Landmark Ford on the 28th of September. I have a little over 1100 miles on it so far. After 500 miles I took it on a trip to Detroit lake through the mountains, if you haven't taken your car on a road trip through the mountian roads yet you should. This car handles great and the seats hold you like a mother holding a child.

I took mine up to Mt. Hood the day after I got it and it does handle as you said. By the way, I bought mine at Gresham Ford. Need to do some heavy duty cleaning this weekend and I will be waxing it again (third time). Mine has 1170 Bullitt miles on it, changed the oil at a 1000. Do you know if they have any Bullitts left at Landmark? I think Gresham Ford is all out now.:smile:

I was just there today and they had none left. The day I bought mine they had 3 or 4. Have you had any problems with paint chipping? I had mine in once to repaint 2 areas and now I have more rock chips. You would think I lived on a country rock road instead of the city.

No, no problems with paint. However, I did have to have one of my headlight replaced. It was gathering moisture on the inside. This is something that many Bullitts and GT's have had a problem with. Another annoyance is a groaning sound I get only in the morning or sometimes after the car has cooled done. But, I almost positive it is the brakes making the noise. Only does it for the first minute or so and then is gone so, I'm not going to panic about it until it starts doing it constantly. By the way, most of the Bullitts that have been on the dyno here (if not all) have registered originally advetised HP and Torque numbers. Not knowing what mine has, I can only assume that my Bullitt is in the same ball park. What ever it might have, I'm very happy with it none the less. It's a great car.:grin:

I agree this is the best driving car I have ever owned. Maybe not the fastest but the most fun to drive. I also had to have a headlight replaced on the drivers side and I noticed today that I have the same problem on the Dr. side back up light. I will be glad to get the bugs worked out and I know the dealer will too. Talk to you some other time and maybe we can find the other Bullitt owners around Portland.

Ok, actually this post is the only confirmation I have that someone else besides myself is driving a Bullitt here in Portland as I have not seen any others here. I'll continue to look while I drive about and hopefully, I will see you and other Bullitt owners cruising about the City and steer the other Bullitt owners to this site. In the meantime, Happy motoring!! :grin:

You said you had it painted a few times how much did it cost you and was it the dealer who did the work or someone else.

I noticed the problems "chips" when I picked up the car. The dealer repainted the roof & panel for free, but they messed up some trim and chipped another area so it's back to the dealer on the Nov 19. Hope they do it right this time.
