    Guess it depends. Like in my case I’ve already got a four-eye and have plenty of room (in my heart, not so much in my garage/yard) for a nice s197.

    I vote Bullitt.

    The Bullitt is a better driver if that is what you are looking for.

    Personally I would take the Capri as there are rare and how often do you have the chance to buy a 85 Motorsport version.

    does that mean you are bidding? I would go after the GP. You can find Bullets for sale more easily.

    Capri

    I never did get the whole "Bullitt" Mustang fascination other than the original movie cars.

    Unless you 1 of the 2 gentleman who own the original "Camera" car or the "Hero" car who cares?

    Anything built after those 2 cars is just green Mustang with wheels and emblems!

    I would vote for the Capri. That said , I do not understand the hate here for the Bullitt. That's a sweet ride. I may be in the minority but I dig the 3v 4.6.

    I like them both. As with many decisions, "it depends." What do you plan to do with the car?

    If you're looking for garage art to keep perfectly stock, the capri.
    If you intend to drive it and have fun, go for the Bullit
