Used Car of the Day: 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt

I love it when Ford Mustang Bullitts pop up for sale on our forums, because no matter what generation Mustang we're talking about, the Bullitt is one of the cooler trims out there.

This 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt sure fits the bill.

There are only 52,000 miles on this one and it features an autograph from Scott Hoag, a lead engineer who helped shepherd the Bullitt to market.

It has all the goodies and is, of course, a manual. And it's the Dark Highland Green color. Oh, and it has the Mach 460 sound system.

It's been restored to (mostly) factory status by the previous owner, including a paint correction and new interior carpet.

There are four major mods: A short-throw shifter, a Ford Performance 3.73:1 rear-end, Ford Motorcraft shocks and struts, and rear-wheel spacers.

If you, the buyer, want to go all the way back to factory, the seller has those parts available.

If you're interested in this ride, you can click here to see more of it/more about it. It's listed for $19,500 in Danville, California.

    I always thought the 03-04 Mach 1 was the best out of this era of Mustangs. I had an Azure blue 04 and loved it, the Cobra was out of reach for me but I thought the Mach was cooler anyway.

    Hideous interior design
  • Rover Sig Absolutely not. Ever.
  • EBFlex No. I buy as little Chinese products as possible.
  • John "...often in a state of complete disarray on the roads" What does that mean? Many examples in poor repair? Talk about awful writing.
  • Varezhka Saving sedans in US or globally? Right now around half of the global sedan sales is in China, just under a quarter in North America, and the remaining quarter distributed around the rest of the world. So for a sedan to stay around they must sell well in both China and North America (BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Honda) or just extremely well in China (VW/Audi and Nissan). For everyone else, the writing is on the wall. There’s also a niche of subcompact sedans in SE Asia and India but I believe those are being replaced by SUVs too.
  • Kcflyer it's not a ford, it's not a mustang. just like the ford gt is not a ford but multimatic gt or mustang wouldn't roll off the tongue
