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.
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.
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:
