Great noises, vicious launch courtesy of 315-hp V8 and 3.73:1 gears. Quick steering, slick 5-speed with short throws. Nicely understated, bereft of normal badges. Handsome period mags protected by wide tires.
Crude interior with tacky plastic and gaudy, ’76 Trans Am “engine-turned” plastic dash panel. Poor rear visibility, cramped rear seat. Solid axle hops around on bad surfaces. Chrome shift knob very cold or very hot. Bullitt VIN on strut brace is tinfoil glued in place.
Second generation Bullitt better than first, but needs IRS. Interior quality is deal-breaker and the King of Cool would have pitched the cheesy doorplates and filler cap.
