If...and I say IF the car exists then the Chicago Leak pics may be all the tease Ford wants... for now. Hell, it could maybe be a 19MY thus way too early for a tease.
Yes-- 68-18 would be a proper 50th but then.... 99 (spring) for the 35th LE car, 04 for the 40th, 09 for the 45th thus 14 for the 50th...nope...change of counting years so the 15 became the 50th. The Bullitt could be a 18 or 19...Ford ain't gonna bind itself to a specific year that tightly--always a way to spin things....
Do I want, wish and hope for an 18 to be announced in 2 weeks...yes....but a lack of a teaser now I do not think is a hint of either a yes or no.
Ford should have made the announcement for the Bullitt tonight, at the opening of the San Jose car show. It's right down the street from where the old San Jose Assembly Plant in Milpitas was, where the original Bullitt Mustangs were probably built. It's also the Bay Area, just south of San Francisco where the movie took place. Ford really blew it. :doh:
It should be known by now that, as of late, teasers aren't really ford's "style"
Look at NAIAS 2015... Ford GT, GT350R, and raptor, and absolutely no indication of any of them prior to the show. Hell, most people still thought a Ford GT return was a fairytale until the very moment it got released.
As far as the 50th anniversary goes, the movie "Bullitt" was actually released October 1968... therefore, if they wanted to do a true 50th anniversary of the movie car, it would be a 2019 MY car being on sale October 2018. Just a thought!
