For Sale: 2019 Ford Mustang in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Ford has already resurrected the legendary Mustang Bullitt Edition a couple times in the modern era, both in 2001 and in 2008, and even though those limited-edition cars were pretty great, they always seemed a bit lacking when compared to the original 1968 Bullitt GT390 Mustang. Now that may have been by design - the point is to honor the legend, not overshadow it - but with the introduction of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT it's pretty clear that Ford is done playing it safe with this limited-edition creation. With a 5.0L Coyote V8 tuned up to 480HP, a quick-shifting 6-speed gearbox, a Level 1 Performance Pack, and aesthetics pulled straight from McQueen's 1968 GT390, it's a perfect representation of modern Mustang muscle - several notches above the impressive Mustang GT and only a shade more conservative than the expensive and ultra-violent GT350. This gently used, 1-owner car has only 2699 miles on the clock - meaning it's probably never chased a black Charger down a winding road - and is a 100% stock, collector-grade stunner that will keep rising in value through the years.

It's been 50 years since Steve McQueen chased a Dodge Charger full of bad guys through the streets of San Francisco, but the recipe has remained largely the same: big power, great handling, compulsory Dark Highland Green paint, Bullitt badges, and restrained yet aggressive styling that transforms the Mustang GT into a sleeper that everyone knows is still a PROBLEM. Based on a well-equipped 6th generation Mustang GT with a bump in horsepower and a Level 1 Performance Pack, the buying public quickly realized that even with all that movie nostalgia aside, the 2019 Bullitt is a veritable "sweet-spot" in the performance Mustang lineup. A huge step-up from a stocker GT and way cheaper than Shelby's GT350/500 variants, it's managed to fill a similar niche that McQueen's car nestled into in 1968, right down to the car's dark green paint and conservative styling. Thanks to the miracle of two-stage urethane paint, it has a dazzling shine without losing the deep color that made McQueen's car the ultimate sleeper. The Bullitt eschews flash and standard Mustang items like a hood scoop and rear wing, just to add authenticity, allowing the blacked-out front grilles, chin spoiler, ground effects, and blacked-out tailpanel out back do all the talking. You'll note that there are no badges or other indicators on it, and the only real identifier is a faux gas cap/badge in the center of the rear tailpanel (something not seen in the original Bullitt), and even that is special just for these cars. The 1968 original used chrome bumpers, but since there's not a lot of chrome on a modern Mustang, they substituted a bright trim ring around the de-equined grille opening along with shiny brightwork surrounding the side windows, which mimic the spirit, if not the exact look of the original. And yes, with so few miles it's in excellent shape, showing only very minor imperfections picked up in the last 2700 miles - most of which could be remedied with a buff-and-wax.

The blacked-out interior got a few upgrades over the standard GT fare as well, most notably the sculpted Ebony Recaro leather seats punctuated with dark green stitching, and the cabin is as beautifully preserved as the exterior. It's not an exact facsimile of the '60s icon, but there are Bullitt design cues everywhere that remind you that this is no ordinary Mustang. There were no engine-turned panels in Frank Bullitt's car, but they give the dash in this one a period-perfect look and brighten up the otherwise blacked-out interior. Same goes for all those flashy bright A/C vents, knobs, and switches, along with the cue-ball knob topped shifter that's largely reminiscent of a Woodward-special Hurst unit, all of which help place the car in-period without actually going back in time. Okay, so the big Bullitt badge on the horn ring and serialized Bullitt plaque above the glove compartment are a bit more ostentatious than anything Stevie 'Stang would've put up with, but in a car with a pushbutton starter, digital gauges, and pretty much every option under the sun, they kind of go with the territory of the times. Entertainment comes via a booming Shaker stereo system and the Microsoft Sync touchscreen is the car's modern command center, featuring everything from a back-up camera to navigation.

Ford gave the Bullitt a few extra horsepower, too, bumped up by 20 to a total 480HP at a 7K redline, all planted to the road via the Mustang Performance Pack 1 upgrade. Performance is lively courtesy of GT350 intake, a larger throttle body, and an open airbox that sucks in cold air in giant gulps. The standard-for-the-Bullitt adjustable exhaust system can be hushed down in quiet mode, or ratcheted up in Sport+ or Track modes, meaning it's entirely possible to replicate the legendary sounds of that famous Filbert Street chase scene. This hot GT is plenty stout and prowls the streets with some swagger, and despite being insanely easy to modify, this one remains 100% stock under the hood, including the Bullitt-branded strut-tower brace that stiffens the body just right. A 6-speed manual transmission is the gearbox of choice to most closely replicate McQueen's 4-speed and it's a joy to run through the gears. In back, there's a Torsen-style 3.55 limited-slip rear end that allows it to launch hard off the line but thanks to a deep overdrive gear, it cruises easily on the highway without getting tiresome. The suspension is the desirable magne-ride damping system, massive Brembos provide excellent stopping power, and blacked-out alloys shod with Michelin Pilot Sport radials finish the look perfectly and are incredibly sticky.
