PostHeaderIcon Is this the Missing Bullitt Mustang or another Ford Marketing Scheme?

When Warner Bros. was filming the 1968 film Bullitt starring Steve McQueen, and his co-star, a 1968 Dark Highland Green Mustang, rumor had it that one Mustang was sold to a private owner – the one used for close-ups – while the stunt vehicle was sent off to the scrap yard. A true shame, indeed, but did it really happen? Maybe not. See, recently it seems that the stunt Mustang was found stashed away in Mexico, decades after was last seen. The worst part: Someone was going to turn it into an Eleanor. Not that you can blame someone for wanting an Eleanor, but it would have been a literal tragedy had someone made all of those modifications.

Apparently, the current owner and the shop that was slated to do the conversion did some research, and the VIN matched that of one of the two movie cars. Considering the other car is still stashed away in someone’s private collection, it’s not hard to at two and two together. There’s supporting photo evidence as well. User Fede Garza over at Vintage-mustang.com has posted images of the VIN, reinforced shock towers, and even the hole in the wheel well for the exhaust outlet of a generator that was used to power movie lights mounted to the vehicle.

The original poster claims he’ll be posting more images in the near future, and that an inspector was on his way to verify the authenticity of the car as the second Bullitt car. So for now, it’s still up in the air, and there is a lot of skepticism circulating about the story. Personally, I tend to wonder if this is a marketing ploy by Ford to draw interest.
