Reproduction 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt Heading To Vegas

Three aren’t many movie cars more famous than the Ford Mustang Bullitt that starred in the movie of the same name, an unforgettable machine that earned its status thanks to playing a role as Steve McQueen’s getaway vehicle of choice. There are many Bullitt replicas out there in the world, but the original sold for a whopping $3.74 million at auction a few years ago to an anonymous buyer. However, those interested in something similar will be able to purchase this reproduction 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Las Vegas sale, joining a 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series and 1971 Ford Bronco “Big Oly” tribute on the docket.

1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt Recreation - Interior 001

This 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt recreation is a ground-up build from Brand New Muscle Car out of Oklahoma, and it’s the only one that company has put together thus far. The build started life as nothing more than an all-metal officially licensed Ford body shell, and from there, the outfit added nothing but off-the-shelf parts to create what is essentially a brand new 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt, even though it’s titled as a ’68 Mustang.

While it looks precisely like the movie car, this recreation is powered by a supercharged Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote crate engine that cranks out an impressive 670 horsepower, which is mated to a 6R80 six-speed automatic transmission. Underneath, the pony car has been enhanced with a Heidts independent front suspension setup, power rack and pinion steering, frame connectors, a four-link rear suspension, a Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.50 gears, adjustable coilover shocks, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes.

On the outside, this Mustang Bullitt recreation is finished in Highland Green Axalta paint with a matte finish clear, a blacked-out front grille, and 17×8-inch matte black painted wheels wrapped with 235/45R17 tires. Inside the cabin, there are some modern amenities to complement the interior’s classic style, including Vintage Air A/C and a RetroSound Bluetooth stereo. With an original price tag of $250k, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what this immaculate recreation ultimately sells for, especially given the incredible interest that has always surrounded the iconic Bullitt.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Shouldn’t this reproduction have a manual transmission? An automatic seems wrong, wrong, wrong.
