2001 Mustang Body Styles:

The 2001 Mustang was mainly a carry-over year with the same styled 2 door coupe and convertible offerings from the previous year. Three models were the base level V6, the V8 GT, and returning from 1999 the higher performance standard SVT Cobra but with the word Cobra embossed on the rear bumper. In 2000 only 300 special SVT Cobra's were built. The biggest news in 2001 was the introduction of the Black or Highland Green Bullitt special model GT coupe based on the 1968 fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 detective movie Bullitt. Famous for its car chase scene on the streets of San Francisco, there were many third party Bullitt kits available.
