An enthusiast bought it in 1974 for $3500 and it is expected to bring in up to $4.5 million at auction.

“(LOS ANGELES) — Though rusty in spots, and completely un-restored since an enthusiast bought it for just $3,500 back in 1974, the iconic Ford Mustang Steve McQueen expertly drove in the 1968 movie Bullitt is expected to fetch a record price at auction. The mythical 1968 Highland Green Mustang, the star of Bullitt’s famous car chase, was thought to be lost forever, but in 2017, the Kiernan Family came forward to reveal that the family patriarch Bob, who passed away in 2014, bought it back in ’74.

He’d tucked it away in a Kentucky barn, but used it as his “family car.”

On January 10, the Mustang will go up for sale by Mecum Auctions in Kissimmee, Florida.

Some experts estimate it could easily fetch $4.5 million, a record for a Mustang. The current record-holder is a 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, which sold for $2.2 million in 2019.“

Sold for $3.74 million.

https://www.autoblog.com/2020/01/10/bul ... 5-million/


“The 1968 Ford Mustang from "Bullitt" has officially sold at the Mecum auction in Kissimmee, Florida. The final price: $3.74 million, which is the total of the $3.4 million hammer price for the car, plus the buyer's auction house fees. According to Hagerty, this makes it only slightly less than the highest price paid for an American muscle car at auction, the $3.5 million 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda convertible sold by Mecum in 2014. Its total price was $3.78 million.“
