I am wondering what everyone would have liked to see done different on the Bullitt? I would have liked the following:

1. More H.P.
2. IRS
3. Tighter gear shifting
4. Original '68 dual "Jet" hood scoops

I absolutely love this car and would change nothing. The horsepower is more than adequate (at least for the next 10 months until I'm once again eligible for traffic school!) and the head-turning factor speaks for itself when considering styling.

I'd have liked 335 HP like the '68 390 but with a flat torque curve all the way to 6 grand, a hood with the dual jet scoops like the '68 or a fully functional hood scoop, an official plaque recognizing my ownership of my Bullitt, a trunk full of $100 bills.

I would say a hood like the original from the movie to keep the car more sleek looking. Other than that I love it the way it is! :smile:

1.)280 to 300 HP would be plenty for me
2.)maybe more of a "fastback" look( with louvers)
3.) and i too would like to see a hood more like the 68 GT

but still, i'm pretty damn happy with what i've got!

Aluminum Gauges on the instrument panel, just like what the concept car had. That was my only real disappointment.

Maybe a few more aluminum accents would have been nice, and I wouldn't have minded a functional hood scoop (either the one we got or a dual design).

Never-the-less I LOVE my car...and it doesn't talk back to me or complain :smile:

CA_Bullitt that may become a reality. While I was at Brothers Performance I saw some prototypes and Tim Gilpin there is trying to find a manufacturer who will make them cost effective for production.

Stiffer suspension. Tight and jarring, like a '90s Fox body LX or GT. I want to know exactly where my tires are on the road.

Functional hood scoops, or no hood scoops. Either way.

I'm happy with the power and suspension.

A few more touches to the interior: guages, ac knobs, headlight knob, maybe the brake lever. None of these are a big deal though.

I'd love to see a manufacturer put RCA pre-outs on the stereo, but that's not a bullitt issue =) Heck, they could run them and a power and ground wire to the trunk at the factory. (just daydreaming). Or maybe just have a nice built in sub.

Window louvers (sp?)

Unique rims. Why put bullitt wheels on the gt's? ARRGGGHHH

They should have used some cool valve caps, like the bullet shaped ones I got. That's really minor though.

Most of all, some documentation from ford. Posters, plaque, whatever. Maybe a nice leather jacket?

The reason the wheels ended up on the GT's is simple: They were not cost effective otherwise. I remember when the concept car was featured in motor trend (which sold me on the car) they were really concerned on how to make those 17" wheels and still turn a profit on the production run. But since the wheels are so cool lookin', they offered them on all the GT's.

functional ram air hood, and DOHC 4V cobra engine. I am happy with the power now though, but the cobra engine takes mods better.

The hood would add a nice touch and the louvers too. More horses for sure with the torque increase too. The color of the wheels could be a little darker. Heck its just about right the way it is. :grin:
