A real good (cheap) alternative is head for Kmart. For $1.29ea you can pick up those cheapo black rubber mats for the back. Hey, I'm like most you guys, money is no object, but they fit absolutely perfectly and believe it or not, actually look good! No one ever rides in back of my GT, but these mats will protect the carpet as good as any can. Had the tan ones in my '98 Cobra too.
Along with the rear mats not being included in my Bullitt were the lighter and ash tray. I don't smoke in the car but the ash tray would've been neat. It seats in one of the cup holders and has a lid on it. Could be used for small, misc stuff for storage. I'm going to order one from the dealer.
I told my salesman the same thing - I don't smoke but was going to miss the ash tray from my '95 GT that I used for storage, you know, coins, etc. I drove away with the ash tray insert and a cigarette lighter, not just the dummy/fake one. It never hurts to ask...
I too will order the mat set with the silver running pony so that I can get mats for the rear. I called Late Model Restoration Supply the other day and they said they now have the dark charcoal mats to match our Bullitts. He also gave me their new website address: www.50resto.com This set is $63.50 with the logo, but I don't believe the order number for dk charcoal has made it into the print catalog. Karl - which set did you get?

The ford.com website for the Bullitt (2001 model year) said "front and rear floormats" ... my dealer said it was "a mistake, no Mustangs come with them"
NO mustangs came with them???? That's funny, mine were wrapped in plastic in the trunk. WOW a dealer that doesn't tell the truth???????? surprise surprise....... Sounds like a Gary Yeomans/Terry Taylor dealership. An institute for pathological liars...........

All floor mats are made by Auto Custom Carpet to match the replacement carpet offered by our company. Die cut like original to insure a perfect fit and finish. Made of long lasting cut pile carpet with vinyl trim and your choice of plain, with running pony logo, or with cobra snake logo. Include eye hole for factory catch on the floor pan. Sold as set of four with logo only on front set. For an EXACT MATCH, call toll free 1-866-50-RESTO and and your salesman for a color sample. We are not responsible for incorrect colors.
2001 Mustangs did not come with rear floor mats. I purchased a set of four from the Ford parts counter. The front 2 are embroidered with "Mustang." They are made of the same material as the carpet and look a lot better than the cheap ones that came in it.
