EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN BULLITT WITH ONLY 15K ORIGINAL MILES, CLEAN HISTORY, WOW!

Ford introduced the Mustang Bullitt edition in 2001, but it wasn't until the redesigned Mustang showed up in 2005 that the Bullitt could really reach into the past and truly channel Steve McQueen. This 2008 Bullitt Mustang is a very cool piece of Ford history, showing only 15,450 original miles and completely untouched save for those slick black wheels. Wow!

The color is Highland Green, just as in 1968, and it practically glows on the surfaces of this modern variant. Thanks to the miracle of two-stage urethane paint, it has a dazzling shine without losing the deep color that made McQueen's car the ultimate sleeper. The Bullitt eschews flash and standard Mustang items like a hood scoop and rear wing, just to add authenticity. You'll note that there are no badges or other indicators on it, and the only real identifier is a faux gas cap in the center of the rear valence, and even that is special just for these cars. The 1968 original used chrome bumpers, but since there's no chrome on an '08 Mustang, they substituted a satin-finished trim ring around the now-horseless grille opening, which mimics the spirit, if not the exact look of the original. There's a shorty antenna, an aftermarket addition, but we do kind of like the look, especially since the rest of the car is so minimalist.

The interior got a few upgrades over the standard GT fare as well, and all of it is as perfectly preserved as the exterior. It's not a duplicate of the '60s icon, but there are deign cues everywhere that remind you that this is no ordinary Mustang. There were no engine-turned panels in Frank Bullitt's car as in this modern rendition, but they do give the dash in this one a period-perfect look and brighten up the otherwise dark gray interior. Same goes for the aluminum shift knob and gray shifter surround, all of which help place the car in-period without actually going back in time. The GT's gauges use a very 1968-looking font with tall, narrow numbers, although the layout is quite modern overall. The seats were borrowed from the GT500 and offer narrow pleats like the original, and the leather-wrapped wheel is a luxury Steve McQueen might have appreciated during the stunt driving sequences. The stereo has been upgraded to a Pioneer touchscreen unit that powers the original Shaker 500 speakers and the trunk is neatly finished and comes with a matching 18-inch spare.

Ford gave the Bullitt a few extra horsepower, too, thanks to an intake system designed by Ford Racing, as well as a strut tower brace that also carries the car's individual number plate (#4092, by the way). The exhaust system was specially tuned to sound like the 1968 car from the film, and it makes a few extra ponies thanks to a custom engine calibration. And even though these cars are insanely easy to modify, this one remains completely stock so you know it hasn't been hammered or haphazardly maintained. The suspension was lowered about a half-inch from stock and is tuned a little more aggressively, befitting a car designed to prowl the streets of San Francisco. The stock Mustang brakes are an easy match for the horsepower, and they live behind blacked-out 18-inch Mickey Thompson wheels wearing Nitto performance radials that look suitably aggressive in the wheel wells.

If you missed your chance in 2008, here it is again. Nicely documented with its window sticker and other Bullet gear, it is a sure-fire future collectable that you can enjoy along the way. Call now!
