Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Call me new fashion, but Eleanor wins by a long margin in my book.
As great as it looks; sometimes you just can’t out class the true class of the original... BWTFDIK 🤷🏻♂️
Neither can compare to my metallic blue '65 289ci coupe.
Which would never compare to my 66' metallic green conv and 289 hi-po.Had it during my HS graduation year, 72.The top one looks bloated and gaudy.
The top one is a Shelby model isn't it
The last great Mustang
Sniper, ...Which might not compare with my '68 Fastback with a 289 and three deuces...back in '69 (Cobra package from a Dealership).
Got me there! lol
I always loved those mag wheels on Bullitt.
Me too. Weren't those American mags, or am I misremembering?My brother had a set like Bullitt's on a '56 Chevy back in the day.
They look a lot like a set of Cragars that I had on a 68 Charger.Damn, I miss those days.
Yes, they were American Racing Custom Wheels, Torque Thrust model.These: https://www.amazon.com/American-Racing-Custom-Machined-5x120-7mm/dp/B000CILQ7QIncidently, you can find everything you didn't know about the Bullitt car in person right here:https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0120-397388/1968-ford-mustang-gt-bullitt/
I couldn't afford a GT350/500 back then and still can't afford one today. A performance oriented GT was in reach back then and also now.
The Bullet Mustang is far better!
That hood scoop/whatever changes the visual balance of Eleanor, and not for the better. The Bullet car looks best. Worked with a guy back in the 80's who had a '68 fastback with a 427 he stuffed into it. Engine came from what he later figured out was most likely an actual Shelby AC Cobra. Side oiler block, dual quads, and other bits I forget. He put it up for sale for $10k in the late 80's. Don't know if it sold.Sold my '65 2+2 4spd Mustang in '73. Found another one in the mid 80's with a straight front axle I tried to buy, but the owner didn't want it going back on the street. Built for dragracing, I think it was set up for a BBC instead of a Ford, due to oil pan clearance for that axle. This was in NJ, and I was going to take it back to CA, but he still wouldn't let it go. Neat looking car. Those early Mustangs had to have the shock towers removed to fit a big block. Hmm, I never checked to see if it might have been my old Mustang...Those Mustangs really required a set of traction bars, even with the small block. You can see the way that axle winds up and hops without them, in the movie Bullet.
I'll take both but I do favor the bullit.
