I have not done it and probably won't but I don't think that it is really that bad of an idea. We worry way to much about the value of our cars. Simply enjoy them the way that you want to. And BTW, no one better try and bitch slap me for something that I do to MY car.

There was someone here on this site that was talking about doing a sunroof. Maybe it's him. Do a search and see if this person lives in your area...?

I don't care so much about the VALUE of my cars...I just have this THING about keeping them the way the Mfg. built them.

Sometimes, even I think I'm crazy.
(that is not a question, so don't answer it!)

Sunroofs do not belong on MUSTANGS. If you want this feature go buy a Honda.

Guys guys !!!!......It matters only to those who wish to modify their cars. More power to you. :cool:. Those that stay stock will probably appreciate simply because there will be fewer of them.... :smile:

A convertable bullitt, you say never, But what if there are no more bullitts for sale, and a tree falls on it. Your only option may be to turn it into a convertable, I saw it in a mag a few years back, where someone in a stang ran into this problem when a tree crushed the top of it

I agree with the statements.....sunroofs don't belong on our Bullitts! I go with 6treva9...just the way she was built!

I have heard of modifications,but isn't a sunroof going a little too far, especially on a "BULLITT" Mustang ? Oh well,like it has been said " To each,thier own " I hope you enjoy it and THANK YOU in the long run for increasing the value of my BULLITT.

I guess somebody had a few thousands extra dollars laying around to do that. I would think that an aftermarket sunroof would do evil things to the structural rigidity of the roof.

Do whatever you want - it's your car to modify anyway you like. If a sunroof increases the enjoyment of your Bullitt - go for it. If you're worried about resale value down the road, then you should keep it stock.

I look at it this way,....................

the more people that carve up their Bullitts, the more my uncut original is worth. :smile:

well let the guy do whatever he wants, he paid a ton of money for the car so let him do as he please, but I do think a sunroof would look out of place in mustangs.

Actually, that person was me, and I'm still contemplating it. Frankly, I don't give a damn what anyone thinks on that subject as I don't feel a sunroof would ruin the "mystique" of the car. It's one thing to put 20" dubs or a 6' wing or a fart cannon on a Bullitt, but there are some nuts on this board that are extreme purists. What's next, window tinting bad?

The fact that Ford doesn't offer a sunroof on Mustangs is their own stupidity. (My guess is they figure it would take away from Mustang convertible sales). Look at almost every other car and truck out there right now, from Cadillacs to Civics to Jags to Explorers, and they offer a factory motorized sunroof. As much as we'd like to think the opposite were true, our Bullitts won't be "collectors items" for 15+ years, so if my putting in a sunroof hurts its value far down the road for whatever person owns it then, so be it...

As for roof rigidity--that's a srock of chit. The only thing our car roofs do is keep rain out. It's the pillars holding the roof up that give the tensile strength. But since the US has no rollover standards (unlike the Europeans & Australians), it doesn't really matter.

That being said, if I do it, I'd only put on a good quality motorized sunroof at a reasonable price. This car deserves much better than the $300 "flip-up special" at Ziebart. Once you have had a car with a sunroof (my previous car), you can never go back to one without one. (The same can be said about V8s). I recently saw a 2001 GT with an aftermarket sunroof (no, it wasn't riced out) and it was not obtrusive and looked good on the car...

I really like sunroofs too. I've found aftermarket sunroofs by ASC are superior to the factory jobs. If you want a sunroof put it in.
