2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt  Overview

It was 1968 when the Movie “Bullitt” starring Steve McQueen as San Francisco Police Detective Lt. Bullitt, piloting a Dark Highland Green Ford Mustang Fastback appeared in one of the most famous movie car chase scenes in cinema history. Pony car fans may perceive the 1968 Mustang GT fastback that McQueen actually drove as the real star of the classic film for its prominent role in the stirring 12-minute high-speed chase scene that took place on the streets of San Francisco and the surrounding area. The risky segment was shot without the use of computer-generated special effects, depicting real hard-driving action by real people in real-time. Paying homage to the original Bullitt Mustang was the 50th Anniversary 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, which was a Limited Production Edition.

Warner Bros. originally purchased two 1968 Mustangs for the making of the film – one for $558. and the other for $559. After filming, the $559 car was purchased by a Warner Bros employee, who then sold it in 1970 to a New Jersey Police detective for $6,000. In 1974, the car again changed hands to the Kiernan brothers in 1974 for $6,000 who used it as their family car until 1980, and who turned down Steve McQueen’s offer to purchase it in 1977. Over the following years, the legendary movie machine acquired “Bullitt” vanity license plates and moved to Kentucky and then Tennessee. In 2001, one of the brothers (Robert) and his 20-year-old son Sean began restoring the Mustang. Sean Inherited the car from his late father Robert in 2014. The car’s rebuild was completed in 2016 and was started for the first time on July 4th of that year. The following year, the famous pony car was reunited with the McQueen family, when Steve’s granddaughter Molly met with Sean in the Ford design studio in Dearborn MI.

The press launch of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt took place in Sausalito, CA, driving over the familiar streets of San Francisco and the surrounding area where the movie was actually filmed. Ford produced earlier Bullitt-badged tribute models before– in 2001 and 2008. Both previous Bullitt editions appeared in the familiar dark green or black paint and were powered by a somewhat hotter engine than the Mustang GTs of the same year.
