Bullitt Mustang Murmurs Supported By Additional Spy Photos

As we reported last week, there’s a very strong chance that Ford is working on a new iteration of the Bullitt Mustang – the special-edition 2001 model, resurrected in 2008, made to pay homage to the 1968 Mustang driven by Lt. Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen) in the 1968 film Bullitt. A dark green pony car that seemed to fit the bill was spotted and photographed in Chicago this month, the photos uploaded to Mustang6G by a user named “Bullitt”. Unfortunately, the photos were taken from a distance, and they suffered from motion blur, making it hard to be certain that it was, indeed, a Bullitt Mustang that had been spied in the Windy City.

Now, Bullitt has uploaded additional photos to Mustang6G, and they’re all but incontrovertible proof that the Bullitt Mustang is indeed coming. The shots contain numerous clues beside the dark green paint: black-finish exhaust tips, a lack of “5.0” side badges, Torq Thrust-style wheels, and most telling of all, two shots clearly shows some variation of the recognizable “bullseye” Bullitt Mustang logo.

All of the new images are available on the Mustang6G forums.

Bullitt next year celebrates its 50th anniversary, at the same time that Ford updates the Mustang‘s styling, powertrain, and electronic gizmos. It seems an opportune time to bring back the special movie-edition of Ford’s iconic pony car.
