I saw a true blue Bullitt in Galveston this weekend with a spoiler. Just doesn't look right. The car was designed to be clean and I think the spoiler detracts from the look of the car.

But like you say, to each their own. If you paid for it, do what you want.

My dealer said they installed a spoiler to a Bullitt...

He said the buyer was female.

no, NO, a thousand times NO!!
so many people have commented about how clean the lines look on this car without the spoiler......deep sigh............
but they paid for it and well, i guess they can do what they want but it just goes against the whole nature of this vehicle to put a spoiler on it

A friend of a friend saw the Bullitt for the first time when we all went out for dinner this week. His first comment was "Sounds great!" Followed by, "Why didn't you get a spoiler?" I think some people just associate that rear spoiler with the SN95 Stangs & think it's weird if it doesn't have one.

How did the spoiler get painted to match the DHG??? Dealers don't have the paint yet I thought. I'm sure they don't have a stock of spoilers just waiting for people to have installed that are DHG. And if your boasting about a Bullitt why not give your Serial Number???

Sounds like a BS job by her "hubby".

Dark Highland Green can be gotten on certain Ford trucks, so getting enough to paint a spoiler would be no prob.

A spoiler on the Bullitt is simply re-goddamn-diculous and all those Bullitt emblems? What were they thinking? While I'm kind of a Bullitt purist (don't want to mod my car at all), I like many of the peformance, handling and minor styling tweaks I've seen posted here. Most of the mods I've seen on BullittClub add to and enhance the look of the Bullitt while adhering to the spirit of the Bullitt's sleek look. A spoiler does none of this and ruins a perfectly great looking car.

In my opinion, the Mustangs have been Arse-heavy in the last few years. I really liked that they didn't have a spoiler on the Bullitt since it cleaned the lines up a bit (not to mention the side scoop work). I also liked the look of the Cobra in a recent car mag (R&T or C&D?). The did a road test, and the test car was sans spoiler.

But again, to each his own. If someone "screws up the lines" (IMO) of their Bullitt, it just makes the rest of ours more desireable. :wink:

Personally I don't like spoilers at all, and now with just about every run of the mill car having one standard or offered or put on after market I think spoilers in general cheapen the look of most cars. I had the chance to buy from a family member a 1988 Porsche Carrera in mint shape with 10,000 miles on it but because it had a giant spoiler on it I declined..I had been looking at and considering the Mustang GT for the past 2 years after I sold my last 2 Corvettes but the spoiler was always the turn off to me. It was the absence of the spoiler on the Bullitt and the clean classic lines that when I heard about it and saw it, that just really made me want it more, and I did ultimately end up buying one. I also bought the classic looking Harley Fatboy when it came out and with the exception of replacing the stock pipes with Harley baloney piples and just a few simple Chrome enhancements the bike is virtually all stock to the naked eye and looks so much better than all the other Fatboys that have been modified and diluted from its original classic, clean, and James Deanish cool bad boy looks.... That's how I want to keep my Bullitt too., but again that's just me an my opinion for what ever it's worth...?

I hope it's not 2627 I haven't cjecked the # and I only have had the car about 10 days?

Sounds like some of these people are ricer wannabes, or saw "Fast and Furious" one too many times.

At least, the spoiler on the original Msch 1 and Boss cars was a true spoiler, completely adjustable for down force. The shopping cart handles on new cars are just that; they do nothing for aerodynamics.

Our unhacked versions will be just a little more valuable 30 years form now.

Did any of you read "The Spoiler's" post on Stangnet claiming the her hubby only paid $21000. Sounds like hubby bought a GT, had it painted with Escape Highland Green, and added all the Bullitt parts. Sounds like a copycat job to me.

Either that or the dealer was brain dead when he sold a Bullitt for $4000 below invoice. Ford's holdback wouldn't even cover that.

Definitely. With the relatively low cost of the Bullitt and continuing availability (at least for now) why would anybody take the time and effort to fake a Bullitt (unless they have a '99 or '00 GT)? Friggin buy one already! When I first read the Stangnet post, the first thing I thought was "FAKE!" but one never knows. I mean, we've already seen a yellow "Bullitt."
