Tim aka "Kit" Sullivan in terrible motorcycle accident

Known as quite a strong-willed and sometimes outspoken Mustang owner and enthusiast - Kit Sullivan is currently in ICU and enduring multiple surgeries as he tries to hold on to life.

 

Kit is an original 1971 Mustang owner since he bought his 1971 429 Mustang Mach 1 brand new.

 

He has provided much-valued information about our cars and helped many in their desire to understand how these cars came out when new.

 

Unfortunately due to his hard-nosed attitude and occasional unfiltered comments, he was banned from this site.  But he remains very active on other Mustang sites including FACEBOOK.

 

If nothing else - please pray for his recovery and for his family.  This is going to be a tough journey for them all.

Ray,

I really hate to hear that Kit has been in such a serious accident.

 

  He was still a member here when I joined in 2014. Strong-willed and outspoken, you bet, Kit is very passionate about these year Mustangs we love. Kit is an original owner of a J code Mustang that actually sat down at his local Ford dealer and ordered his car. He is an absolute wealth of information on how these cars were and were not equipped when they were delivered to the Dealership.

 

Ray, Please convey to his family that our prayers go to him and his loved ones as the Doctors work for a successful recovery.

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Very sad news... I hope he pulls through OK. He was on the site and I guess removed from it before my arrival, but, I feel that it was the site’s loss when he was removed... His knowledge, viewpoints and critical critiques are right my alley and would be a definite benefit to those who want to know about originality concerning these car’s. Standup guy. I am thinking about him...

"Yes dear", has kept me in the hobby a long time...

I am not in contact with his family. So if anyone wants to communicate with the family - go to Facebook and search for Tim Sullivan or Kit Sullivan. You can find the posts about the accident and Kit's current condition there.

 

I am thinking about him and his family too.

 

And if you own and ride motorcycles - please exercise extreme caution on every ride!

That is a tough one for sure hope he pulls through. I had to sell my motorcycle many years ago or die myself. I could never drive it slow always dragging the foot pegs and kicking the back wheel out. 

All mustang guys pull together when the going gets tough. I am pulling for him.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Apparently he passed away on or about October 23rd. After his accident - he was placed in hospice. The damage to him was too much. Tough news. From what I understand at least he passed in comfort under hospice care and surrounded by his family.

That's too bad, really tough on family and friends when someone goes too young.

This forum can be tough on owner that been involved with these big ugly 71/3 mustang from there beginning. Things didn't always and most time, go by the book to keep the production line moving. Condolence to Kit's family.

That's sad to hear! 

 

I know him from this forum a few years, a critical but very knowledgeable Mustang-enthusiast who knows them from the first time they were built! 

 

R.I.P., namesake, and condolences to your family!
