If you follow automotive news at least moderately, you’ll possible aware that last week, at Mecum’s auction in Kissemmee, a unique car was on the block and available to the highest bidder. That car was one of the two 1968 Ford Mustangs used in the making of the film Bullitt. Without doubt, this is one of the most iconic cars in cinematic history.
Can you think of any other models named after the film that made them famous?
The car being auctioned off was partially still in its original state, and it had belonged to the same family since 1974, or 46 years. The last time it changed hands, the agreed-upon price was… $3,500.
Let’s say it was a sure bet to go for a little more than that this time around. A lot more, actually.
