Found: the real Bullitt Mustang that Steve McQueen tried (and failed) to buy

#1 Post by 3xpendable » Thu Feb 08, 2018 2:27 pm

Greetings all from the USA!

I'm still classicless, and sadly have to wait a few more years until I'm settled (house purchase comes first). But wanted to stop in and say hi again and that I hadn't forgotten the place. I'm also expecting our first child in June so fun times ahead. I did nearly buy a MK1 Capri last year but the seller was a timewaster so I bought a kart instead. It is my intention to get either a MK1 Capri or an MGBGT again at some point but right now I've fallen in love with the new 2019 Bullitt Mustang, so while I wont be buying one new I hope to get one within 5 yrs.

I discovered this car, when they launched it at the Detroit Auto show and unvailed the long lost "Hero" car from the actual Bullitt film! There is a fantastic article on it in Hagerty, so I thought you'd all enjoy:

Congratulations, exciting times ahead!! :thumbs:

Thanks by the way for sharing the link, interesting reading. One of my absolute favourite cars ever, the Mustang Fastback from 1967-69!
