I own a '01 Bullitt Mustang. It may be that Ford has "plans" for a future Bullitt special using the new body style and I think it would be sharp; BUT, there are serious problems to creating a new Bullitt - Ford "promised" they would only do it one time and that promise included the McQueen Estate who are definitely involved; plus there are royalties involved to both Warner Bros. and McQueen Estate and there is talk that such royalties could be very large this time (reasonable on the 2001 one).
IMO the likelihood is far greater to see a Boss and/or another Mach 1 edition long before a new Bullitt will happen.

Hadn't considered the royalties issue and what it might mean to a future Bullitt edition. Excellent point.
But, if that's the case, why not just go ahead and offer Highland Green on the current models now?
I think most would consider it to be a terrific color (Motortrend even did a 'Bullitt recreation' a few months ago where they pitted a Mustang GT against the new Dodge Charger - and got Ford to one-off a Highland Green Mustang GT. The car really looks sharp in that color).

Too late - Chip Foose and Unique Performance already did it. They call it the Stallion - Eleanor's big brother:

I think Cervini's Elanor body kit looks better than Foose's Stallion design. I think Foose is over extendeding himself and his designs are not as inspired as they once were. Still, I would take this Stang just to stand out from the crowd

I have been loooking at getting anew mustang for about 2 months, I almost have the deposit I need. I have been to a few different dealers and told them "I know what I want and if you cant get it, Im leaving." Of course, they can all "get it." The thing is, I want a Legend Lime V8 and I havent seen but 2-4 on different lots. All have been 6s, with one 8. What is the deal with this color?? The dealers all say they can get it, but why cant I find one???

mustangnikki22, I think LL is the least produced color. From all the different Mustang boards I visit, it seems that reds and blacks dominate. The Legend Lime and Yellow seem to be the least amount.
I found this info below from www.legendlimeregistry.com and don't know how accurate it is. I copy and pasted it exactly as it appeared. Enjoy!

If you really want a legend lime GT why not just order one? You'd probably have it by now if you'd ordered it when you started looking.

I'm with akirby. If there's something specific you like, just order one.
Your problem is less about the color you want and more about the availability of the GTs. For the most part (and depending on your geographic location), the Mustang GTs are still in short supply.
