This is the famous 'stolen Bullitt' that generated all the drama all those years ago.

https://www.imboc.com/forums/87-bullitthead-chat/141736-my-bullitt-stolen-out-my-garage.html





The pictures above are from the previous owner, just before I bought the car with 6500 miles on it.

These pictures are after it was recovered:





It was put back together and received a PHENOMENAL paint job. It is literally better than new.

This is how it looked immediately upon being repaired in August 2007:







The car was painted from the beltline up. New driver front fender and front bumper. The paint is super nice. Transmission rebuilt and new clutch installed by Lamotta. Minor suspension damage to driver front wheel area. The oil pan and headers have minor dents from this guy trying to escape (read the thread above if interested) but nothing to impact the mechanicals of the car. I have put on about 12,000 miles since the repairs were done with ZERO issues. For a car with this many mods, that is saying something.

Here are the mods on the car, pretty much all installed by the previous owner:

It is pretty heavily modified, but it has been 100% trouble free in all my years of ownership. No mechanical issues, no leaks, no surprises. A couple of minor paint flaws, but still looks great. Will need new tires this season.

32,000 miles currently. Looking for $17,000.

Clean Green Michigan title, but I am sure the Car Fax has a record of the theft/recovery back in 2007. Car is located in Brighton Michigan.

I have all documentation on the car - window sticker, build sheet as well as all of the documentation for all of the original modifications and the repairs after the 'incident'. Mechanically, the car needed a new clutch and a couple minor suspension components. Lamotta Performance in Florida handled that. LaMotta Performance

The body work was done by Brad Samuels in Sanford FL - Welcome to Samuels Paint and Autobody - Sanford, Florida

Both of these are TOP NOTCH shops. The car was fixed correctly.

If there are any questions about the car or if any additional information is needed, please let me know.

I will get some current pictures posted later tonight. Rest assured, it is still in great condition.

Thanks for looking.
Kevin

Here are some current pics.

This is just having been pulled out of her winter slumber. Has not even been cleaned up yet.

Here's my feelings Kevin. The car looks great. For me, there are too many mods. I would want a straight up stock car. I'd be a little concerned about the body work holding up over the long run. That said, if you find the right person who likes the car for what it is, the money you are asking doesn't seem too high. Probably $15K is your trigger point. Good luck.

Appreciate the feedback. Understand the reluctance due to the mods the car has, as well. Truth be told, I had reservations abut the mods when I bought the car originally with about 5600 miles about a dozen years ago. With that being said, the car has never let me down in the 25,000 miles I have out on it. Nothing even close. I wouldn't hesitate to drive this car to California tomorrow. It is dead nuts reliable. Of course, it is still not a 'stock' car, and will never be, but the mods were done to enhance the driving experience and make it a better car than it was when it left the factory.

The body work done on the car? Well, it got a new fender and a new front bumper. That a paint job that is far superior to what was on the car when it left the factory. I have owned a brand new 2001 Bullitt and I bought this one in mint condition with 5600 miles on it, so I am aware of Ford factory paint on these cars. The quality wasn't bad - in fact I thought it looked pretty darn good before it was stolen. But the difference in quality between the paint on this car now and the original paint is significant.

Again, I appreciate the feedback.
Kevin

It's really nice, Kevin! Do you have any engine bay photos? Since my current '01 was a theft recovery car, maybe I should start a stolen Bullitt collection :)

Damn Kevin, this is a couple years too late for me as I have gone back to my redneck ways and am now 3 years deep into a C10 project. Your Bullitt set the standard for me and is the one that I really wanted after selling 00005 all those years ago.

I truly hope it goes to a good home, whoever ends up with it is a lucky person indeed!!!

Hello my friend! Yes, I've been away for sure. I still lurk occasionally and as I mentioned if the timing had been different I would have been all over Kevin's Bullitt as that was everything I envisioned when I thought of the perfect '01 Bullitt.:cool:

Kenne Bell blown Bullitt #2255 is looking for a new owner.

There MIGHT be one or two nicer 2001 Bullitts on the planet, but I won't guarantee it.
