Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : email@example.com .
There were 5773 Bullitts produced in 2008, 4377 were done in Dark Highland Green
7500 VERY CAREFUL miles - most of which were added by a 59-yr old driver (me) who got his hot-rodding done with the
last Corvette he owned and bought this as a work of art - not a daily driver. My Dad took me to see Bullitt when I
was a youngster, and I never forgot it. When I saw the introduction of this tribute car, I had to have it. No
scoops, no spoilers, no stripes - oh my! Very subtly understated, just like the king of cool himself.
The car was so perfect when I got it, I just had to keep it that way.
Early build number: 0545
Rare options: The car was custom-ordered with Navigation system, Ambient Lighting, and Hands-Free Phone - the Ford
Mobil-Ease Bluetooth system - installed at the factory These options alone added another $2980 on top of the $3310
Bullitt Package in the sticker-price. I have not seen another Bullitt with all three of these options.
Always garaged and covered
Never seen any bad weather
Every single engine startup/trip is logged along with trip miles and significant events (oil changes, etc.) in a
spreadsheet I will provide with the car. Every single mile is documented since I have owned it.
Still has the clear plastic peel-off protectors on the doorsills
Still has new car smell
The entire interior is perfect - no sign of wear anywhere
Leather Steering Wheel has NO shiny spots on it - just like new
No BURNOUTS, no REDLINING, no POTHOLES, no CURBS - if I ever found myself behind a cement mixer or garbage truck, I
took immediate evasive maneuvers to avoid
Car was never driven over 2,000 RPM until thoroughly warmed up
A/C was always cut-off several blocks from home to let the condenser cool down and the freon/oil settle prior to
I know, I was a little bit crazy about this car
Driven just enough to keep all systems in good condition and all seals lubricated, etc. Every trip was a blast and
still felt as if I was just driving off the showroom floor.
Extras and Goodies that will be included with the car:

Navigation Update performed in 2015 - latest Ford Disc was purchased and installed
Still has some of the little rubber casting spikes on the tire sidewalls
RPM-Matched every shift - up or down
Paint finish is like glass with no imperfections. Only mark on the car is on the rear bumper when I was pushing the
car back and bumped into the garage door and one of the hinge bolts pressed into the paint a little bit (see last
Never taken to a car-wash - always hand-cleaned/polished/waxed - no swirls, etc.
If you are looking for a pristine example of the breed, look no further - this is IT
Car has had 3 owners - the original buyer was a huge Bullitt enthusiast who paid a large premium for one of the
earliest cars, and was insistent on keeping the car perfect. Fortunately, he was also very meticulous about keeping
EVERYTHING to do with the car, even sale paperwork, registration documents, recall maintenance, service history,
etc. The second owner was just as fastidious, and drove the car primarily to car shows and never used it as a
driver. I bought the car from him with 2950 miles on it, and it was everything he said it was. Since then, it has
not grown any older if I could help it.
I have been more of a caretaker for it than a driver and now it is time to pass that responsibility on to someone
That privilege and responsibility will cost you $25,000 and well worth it

Ten years ago, during the bright-eyed enthusiasm of the early 2000s and before the collective automotive industry did its best Titanic impression, we had the Ford GT. An everyman's supercar like there'd never been (remember, this was before 638-horsepower Corvettes were a thing), the GT arrived with a supercharged, 5.4-liter V8 that produced 550 horsepower and graced this retro-styled rocket with an easy, sub-four-second sprint to 60 miles per hour.
Equal to the GT's performance were its looks. Inspired by the GT40 racers that dominated Le Mans and bested Ferrari in the 1960s, the sleek, low, almost-reptilian look of the GT was the absolute pinnacle of the retro styling that so defined the early 2000s.
Crank and Piston put together a video celebrating the ten-year-old GT, arguing that Ford is a bit too busy with the next-gen Mustang, which turns 50 next week, to do it themselves. In the short clip, there is gratuitous engine noise and supercharger whine, not to mention scenes of the white-on-red GT prowling the deserts and streets of Dubai. It's a bit short, but very nicely shot. Scroll down, have a look and be sure to turn up those speakers before getting started.
Speeders beware, the police are going to be getting quite a bit faster. Ford has just announced that it will be offering its 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged, EcoBoost V6 in the Explorer Police Interceptor. The new engine will be joining the existing 3.7-liter V6. The 365-horsepower, 350-pound-foot mill should be familiar to consumers as the powerplant that's found in the Ford Taurus SHO (and its LEO equivalent, the Taurus Police Interceptor) and the Ford Explorer Sport. It should also provide quite a kick in the pants to officers used to the naturally aspirated 3.7 and its 304 ponies and 279 pound-feet of torque.
The move to the more potent powerplant was born out of all the equipment officers need to carry on a day-to-day basis. These days, there's so much stuff that police need on a regular basis, that there's a genuine market for a faster Police Interceptor Utility, as it's known officially. The Explorer-based cruiser has already accounted for 68 percent of Ford's LEO sales in 2013, and that's with just the 3.7, and we'd only expect that number to increase once the twin-turbo, 3.5-liter V6 is available. Ford won't offer up any indication of what the take rate will be on the new engine, but we're guessing it'll be fairly high.
The success of the Explorer PI couldn't have come at a better time for Ford. The decision to end Crown Victoria production was not a popular one with police, and combined with Chevrolet and Dodge diving into the LEO market feet first, Ford hasn't been performing as well as it's wanted to. The Explorer has been helping it turn around, though. And with the inclusion of the EcoBoost, Ford also has a legit competitor for the Chevrolet Tahoe on the big utility side of the police market.
YouGov's mid-year Brand Index rankings of America's best perceived brands has been released, and Ford has found its way to the top. The Dearborn, Michigan based manufacturer beat out online shopping giant Amazon, The History Channel, and home improvement superstore Lowe's, to take the top spot.
Ford jumped from sixth overall in 2012 to first for 2013, but those that have been watching these rankings shouldn't be hugely surprised. Ford was rated the best perceived automotive manufacturer by the same organization last year. The Blue Oval's success on the overall brand rankings is made all the more impressive by the complete lack of other automakers on the list.
YouGov (that is, survey respondents) cited Ford's first quarter of 2013 business, which saw an increase in market share and the best earnings recorded in over 10 years. Successfully launching the Focus and Fusion (pictured) and keeping them fresh in the minds of consumers has also contributed to Ford's best overall score.
