Cool Bullitt

They found one of the '68 Bullitt Mustangs in a junkyard in Mexico:

I've been reading about this on other sites. I'm hopeful that it is all true and not an elaborate hoax.

No, it turned out that it was the "real deal" after all. Kevin Marti went down in person to view the car and confirm the VIN numbers. He said that according to his records this car is the actual "stunt" car that was used in the movie. How cool is that?

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!

There is an interesting article about the Bullitt car in the January/February issue of Hagerty’s magazine.

Here's the article and some videos on the car.
FYI: Apparently, this is not the Mexico car... it would be really cool to get both cars together...

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.
