I've had it with the DMV. I have been denied anything with any abbreviation or hint to Bullitt in a personalized plate. I've explained its the name of my car and a character in a movie but I was denied. They have a lame excuse because it refers to weaponry and could be offensive. Wow am I sick of everyone being offended:(

Anyone in other states have this issue? I'm in California.

I picked up my personalized California black plates last week look great on the car and really look like they are a letter number combo from the era. Unless I told you what the combo means you wouldn’t know. Doubly nice

Actually, since there were Bullitt Mustangs made in 2001, then again in 2008-09, and considering how many are in California, probably it's all been done long before you bought your 19.

if they are specifically denying it for being offensive rather than just not available...two different things obviously. if Bullitt or any derivative is in use, then they are being discriminatory in telling you it is offensive. what is good for the goose should be good for the gander.

Send them pics and a detailed letter highlighting Bullitt on your order form or window sticker. Worked out for my father after they initially declined his request... Good luck!

Bobbyd21, Thanks for posting the pictures. That Black look great. I wasn't sure about the bright molding around the windows and grill on the DHG cars but on the Black, they look fantastic. WOW, great looking car.

In BC, it's almost the opposite of your experience. You can only put a vanity plate with the word BULLITT or any variation of that on a Bullitt. I could not order mine until I had possession of the car. They would not let me put it on another vehicle and then transfer it once I got my car. Because of this, my first choice was gone (not sure how) and ended up with my second choice.

That sucks. In Ontario I guess they just want your $310, you can order a plate anytime and attach to any car at any time.

In my resident state, Tennessee it's $35.00 application fee and you get three choices.

Also a note for why it's of significant value or importance.

I got my 3rd choice for my 2019 car.

I was very happy with any of them .

I remember doing this in Florida for specialty plates for my Harley's. It was more expensive but still not difficult.
