Original Bullitt Mustang sold at Mecum auctions

 

Today, January 10th 2020 the original 1968 Ford Mustang fastback (#559) driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt has been auctioned to a new owner for 3.400.000 dollar. After been in hiding for many years, the owner Sean Kiernan has put it for sale. I have some Belgian friends living in Florida and they went to see the car (damn I am jalous !) and here are the pictures they took.

Fully surrounded by glass for protection it is not ideal to photograph, but hey, unique pics anyway. I think it's the first time that at an auction a rusty Mustangs gets so much attention !!
