Ford's Bullitt Mustang: Return of a Legend

 eMOTION Staff



Bragging Rights

Pardon us if we take a minute to brag. There was this smashing yellow Mustang GT gracing the glossy covers of our magazine with a knockout profile in the centerfold some months ago.

We told about the heritage of this legendary Ford pony car, how it first went nose to nosewith GM's snarly Camaro and -- according to true blooded Mustang aficionados - came out the unsurpassed winner.

And, after decades of silence beyond the Mustang clubs, we resurrected the legendary grit of Steve McQueen and his "Bullitt" Mustang that knocked the socks off of every wild movie car chase scene that preceded it and became a high water mark for motor buffmadness everywhere.We did that cover story. And boy, were we proud.

So a few months later, here comes Ford Motor Co., digging into its history to bring out --you guessed it -- a revival of that legendary Bullitt Mustang (complete with Bullitt badging and bright red performance brake calipers bearing a tiny engraved Mustang emblem).

Could that all be a mere coincidence? Looking back at the inaugural issue of eMOTION! Magazine, we'll just enjoy the proximity, thank you. And we'll pass along our opinion of this tantalizing new revival that Ford simply can't manage to keep in its showrooms at the same time that GM is saying last rites for the woefully neglected Firebird/Camaro. (Bob Lutz, are you listening? Apparently someone at Ford said "why not.")
