Lost Movie Car Reappears Next to the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt

17 January 2018

As for exterior colours, aside from the classic Dark Highland Green the new Bullitt will also be offered in Shadow Black. This has led to Ford building Bullitt Mustangs in the past and that time has come again in order to properly celebrate the movie's 50th anniversary. "As a designer, it's my favorite Mustang - devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges. It doesn't need to scream about anything - it's just cool".

With this tribute, the original 1968 Mustang GT fastback movie vehicle was also revealed to the world after being absent for 40 years from the public eye. It was long presumed lost, but the 1968 Mustang GT fastback in fact changed hands a few times, an ultimately was inherited by Sean Kiernan in 2014.

But the 2019 Mustang Bullitt is also exceedingly modern-it's equipped with a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster with a unique welcome screen, and gets all content included with the Mustang GT Premium with Performance Package. Upgrade comes from a new open-air induction system and an 87mm throttle body which works with a Shelby GT350 intake manifold. Ford fit a manual transmission and a white cue ball shift knob to the new limited edition.

Yes, and no. The Blue Oval would never deign to cheapen one of its most iconic cars.

Every motor show features new cars restricted to certain markets, but the USA has more than most. The 1968 film "Bullitt" stars legendary actor Steve McQueen and has one of the best auto chase scenes in film - ever.
