A little history about Phill’s beautiful car.  The 2008 and 2009 Mustang Bullitt was Ford’s follow-up to the 2001 Bullitt Mustang. This car, with the S197 Mustang design, was able to more closely resemble the exterior appearance of the original 1968 GT390 car driven by Steve McQueen! Like it’s older brother, the 2008 and 2009 Bullitt has subtle changes but the little goes a long way!


One thing about the 2008/9 Bullitt Mustang compared to the New Edge Version is that the 2001 Car is known as a “Mustang Bullitt” and the 08/09 car is a “Mustang GT” with the Bullitt Package.  Here are the differences between the 2008 Mustang GT and the Bullitt.
