Auction Block: 1968 ‘Bullitt’ Ford Mustang GT Fastback

Both Steve McQueen and his muscle car from Bullitt need no introduction. The man and the machine are legendary, and the film is the centerpiece of every gearhead’s movie collection. Thought to be lost before it appeared at the Bullitt 50th anniversary event last year, the unforgettable 1968 Bullitt Ford Mustang GT Fastback is heading to the auction block.

The Highland Green Fastback received modifications for the film, including a more rugged heavy-duty suspension, camera mounting points, and engine upgrades. This hero ride has all the battle scars from the car chases in the film and only minor changes have been made to it, including the addition of a new steering wheel and shift knob, as the originals were stolen. Additionally, the engine was also rebuilt using original Mustang parts. Overall, it’s in pretty impressive shape for being over five decades old. One of only two rides used in the movie, the iconic car might go down in history as being one of the most expensive Mustangs ever sold. The car will be auctioned off in Kissimmee, Florida in January.
