I don't think it will sell.  I think it's all hype for meecum and to get a gauge to the value of the car.

But I guess it's no reserve, so that blows my theory.

with all due respect beg to differ, whom ever buys this bullitt mustang will have the original 1 of 1 true bullitt

this particular vehicle has a paper trail since it left hollywood with mostly all its sheet metal and parts still intact 

it has been kept by the current family for many consecutive decades 

car number two was a carcass when it was found

can't and shouldn't compare this bullitt # 1 to the other car

just my two cents 

please note pictures #1 #2 are of bullitt 559 car to be sold in 2020

pictures #3 #4 are of bullitt 558 or the chase car


Its very interesting, I think what may take a little wind out of the sail is that its not the only Bullitt  car.  The new owner is going to have one of two,..A little different that one of one, the only one. Still the most iconic Mustang in history in my opinion.  When the smoke clears I wouldn't be shocked if its around 2 mil.

The car is selling at no reserve, so it’s going to sell. I think $6-$8M, personally.

And, no comparison between this and the second car. This is the most important / best condition of the two, IMO.  If we’ll see!  8)

Driven by the King of Cool in the car chase that defined all others and mostly still as original as when retired? $8 million. Hey check what the Batmobile sold for a while back...$4.6 million and that car was driven around by a bat.

It's going to sell for alot more then any current owner paid.

Dicky Smothers used to walk around complaining that he couldn't afford to buy back "his" Cobra because his previous ownership made the value exorbitant? Sure Dicky, it was you.

Complain to Tommy. He made you sell it.

if regular (lol) folks bid on bullitt it should come in at north of three million

if ford or one if its agents joins the bid process,  then it will be north of five million

Why not get all crazy with it? My guess - $12+ million

Substantially original
Driven by, but to his chagrin, not owned by Steve McQueen
Paper trail with impeccable provenance
Listed in the National Historic Vehicle Registry
The Porsche 917 used in his film LeMans sold for $14+mil
What else is a multi-millionaire going to do with their spare cash?

1968 Mustang GT S-code
2009 Mustang Bullitt
