So much more than just another found ’68 Mustang, the one and only 1968 Bullitt Mustang could very well be considered one of the most iconic movie cars ever. And in case you’re wondering, yes, this is the car from McQueen’s 1968 adrenaline-fueled hit Bullitt – recently discovered after previously thought to have been missing for nearly 40 years after McQueen himself attempted several times to purchase the vehicle for himself in 1977.

It’s one of two Highland Green ’68 Mustang fastbacks originally purchased for the movie. Both boasted the Ford’s GT package and a 390-cubic-inch V8 under the hood. One of which was equipped with a roll cage for stunt work while the other was simply modified with gray Torq Thrust wheels and removal of the badges and backup lights. That’s the car presented here as the other one was soon sent to the crusher after the film wrapped up. The owner? An insurance executive by the name of Bob Kierman who planned on restoring the vehicle to working condition before falling to Parkinson’s disease. Now, his son Sean is set on completing the work – though there’s no word on whether or not he’ll sell the car after the job is done.
