LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1968 “Bullitt” Ford Mustang Fastback.

Ford completed the first redesign of the legendary Mustang for the ’67 model year with improved dimensions to allow the installation of a big-block – the Thunderbird 390. The most noticeable design changes were the larger/deeper grill mouth and concave tail lights. Ford then provided minor changes for the second model year in ’68 that focused on safety, such as the two-spoke energy absorbing steering wheel, shoulder belts and side markers. These Mustangs had serious muscle grunt for the street with the 390 GT 4-speed cars having quarter mile times of approximately 13 seconds at over 105 mph.

Away from the showroom, the Mustang received a mega marketing buzz of popularity when the new 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback was featured in the Hollywood film “Bullitt”. The movie featured Steve McQueen, the highest-paid Hollywood actor at that time, as San Francisco detective Frank Bullitt. The film includes arguably the most authentic and well-known car chase of all time, a cinema legend that set the standard for all subsequent car chase scenes. The high-speed muscle car chase through the hills of San Francisco saw good-guy Steve McQueen driving a highland green 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT Fastback against bad-guy hitmen in a black 1968 Dodge Charger 440 Magnum. Steve McQueen did much of the driving himself in an era before special effects, and he added his own style to the movie car by removing the chrome and Mustang badging. The blacked-out Bullitt look gained such popularity over the years that Ford introduced their own Bullitt limited editions of the Mustang in 2001 and again in 2008. There are rumors that another version may be in the making for the 50th anniversary of the film in 2018.

This fully documented 1968 Ford Mustang fastback 390 GT 4-speed is a Bullitt movie car recreation. It was ordered through the Los Angeles district sales office, manufactured in San Jose and delivered to the Gaudin Ford dealer in Las Vegas. This “S” Code car was highly-optioned from the factory, including the GT equipment group, power steering, power front disc brakes and air conditioning. It was a long-time Arizona resident before being purchased by Legendary Motorcar for an automotive paint company’s promotional build in 2013.

The ground-up restoration and Bullitt transformation was featured in an episode of Legendary’s popular television series. The car retains the original sheet metal and is powered by the numbers-matching 390 engine, rebuilt and stroked to 445 cubic inches, backed by a correct RUG-AD 4-speed manual transmission with Hurst linkage and the original 9-inch rear with 3.25 gearing and posi trac lock. It also includes ceramic-coated headers and a Flowmaster 2.5-inch custom dual exhaust system to allow the engine to breath. American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels and BF Goodrich radial tires deliver power to the street. The car’s handling has been upgraded with power rack and pinion steering and a modern coil-over suspension with 4-link rear.

The original radio has hidden blue tooth and speaker upgrades. Dynamat lining was installed throughout the trunk and interior for noise reduction. The trunk contains a full-size matching spare and the stock jack, plus a Legendary car cover for indoor storage. The leather-wrapped Shelby Cobra steering wheel and several other subtle interior and exterior changes complete the Bullitt theme.

This ’68 Mustang is one of the most recognized muscle cars of the era and is a stunning tribute to one of the most popular movie cars of all time. The car comes fully documented with a deluxe Marti report showing that it is an original “S” Code 390 GT 4-speed. This is likely the nicest, fastest and best-handling Bullitt Mustang on the market today.
