About “85 camaro”

I got the car on 5-23-2008 with a gm 350 and a 700r4. I then pulled the motor and put in a 383 stoker I took out the 700r4 and in the middle of building a th350 for the car. I got the 383 from my best friend’s brother who shortly after lost his life in a hunting accident. R.I.P Josh

On 5-26-08 the car took first place in the best unfinished at the Oconto Falls Memorial day Show and Shine

Factory Options for “Bulitt”

APPEARANCE: The Mustang Bullitt is offered in "Dark Highland Green," "True Blue," and black. The green is a close match to the color of the movie car, and its five-spoke alloy wheels are a modern interpretation of the classic late-'60s "mag" wheels on the movie car. A large (non-functional) hood scoop is the most apparent difference from a regular Mustang GT, but the side trim and rocker panels are also different. A brushed-aluminum gas cap is unique to the Bullitt, as are the red brake calipers. A small "Bullitt" badge is found on the rear panel.

COMFORT: The Bullitt may pay homage to the past in name, but its interior is contemporary. It enhances the standard Mustang with competition drilled-look control pedals, an aluminum trim ring around the gearshift boot, and an aluminum shift knob. The "Bullitt" logo is found on the door sill plates. Perforated leather upholstery is part of the package, with front sport buckets and a rear bench. Like in all 2001 Mustangs, a new center console has larger cupholders and a power point. A six-CD in-dash changer is available with the Mach 460 sound system. Front seat room is good. Remember that this is a sport coupe, not a family sedan - the rear seat is best for smaller people for short distances. Its back folds for extra trunk space when needed, making any 2001 Mustang as functional as it is fun.

SAFETY: The 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT has all of the required and expected safety equipment, and excellent four-wheel vented disc brakes so you don't have to discover the passive safety equipment the hard way.

ROADABILITY: The Mustang's raw-boned all-American muscle car character has been toned down a little since the late 1960s, but no one will mistake the 2001 Mustang Bullitt for a high-dollar European luxury car. Hey, it's a Mustang! Still, it's a long way from its ancestors of thirty-plus years ago. The power steering feels a little overassisted at low speeds, but the Goodyear Eagle ZR45 P245/45 ZR17 tires help give it good turn-in characteristics and have far more grip than the primitive tires on Frank Bullitt's '68 Mustang. Thirteen-inch vented front Brembo discs (slightly smaller at the rear) and high-performance calipers make it stop, now! Don't even compare them with the disc/drum setup on Frank's GT. Good rear axle location and revalved Tokico shocks matched to the spring and stabilizer bar rates give it very good handling characteristics for a solid rear axle car, and, while the ride is pretty firm, it is not at all punishing. You don't have to be a Mustang fanatic to like this puppy.

PERFORMANCE: The Bullitt's 4.6-liter single overhead cam V8 is not quite the same as that found in regular Mustang GTs. It benefits from an enlarged twin-bore throttle body, aluminum intake manifold, and high-flow mufflers to make a little more power than the standard GT. Ford claims 265 horsepower (versus 260) and "significantly more" torque than the GT's 302 lb-ft. Unlike the old 5.0 pushrod engine or the venerable 390, but like the regular GT engine, it needs to be revved for serious power production. The basso profundo exhaust music serves to save driver's licenses - it's loud enough to make it seem that the car's speed is faster than it really is, not necessarily a bad thing if you don't care to be on a first-name basis with the local authorities. Linkage to the five-speed manual gearbox is wonderful, and makes shifting a pleasure. But wear gloves, the aluminum shift knob can be pretty toasty on a hot day.

CONCLUSIONS: The limited-edition 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT is fast, fun, and exclusive, and should be a future collectible.
