Bullitt going on the block

Interesting news from Mecum Auctions today.

Save your pennies, cash in your 401K (and the spouse's) and be in Kissimmee next January.

Should be interesting to watch and see if it actually hits the reserve.

Any guesses what the market will bear?

Surprised it took this long to make it to auction......

First person that came to my mind when I saw the story.

If I hit the powerball between now and January, I'm going to drive the living $^!# out of it.

It'll go for one sick price, that's for sure. Possibly even more than Shelby's '67 Supersnake. Be interesting to see. Quarter panel rust and everything.

[/SIGPIC]67 Fastback GT -- original colour (Frost Turquoise), original 289 A code engine. Pic is of me and the Mustang taken in May of '67, with original F70-14 Wide Ovals. Same car is now restored to "as new" but 3 speed tranny swapped out for 4 speed back in the mid '80's, with tach dash, original Equalock rear, Koni's, Opentracker UCA, LCA, roller perches and idler arm, roller bearing pedal cluster, Cibie headlights, 4100 carb (old 4300 put in storage probably forever)

Well I was wondering when good old fashioned greed would catch up with it. It didn't take long from I could never sell this car to putting it on Mecum.


Since this Kiernan probably has never put so much as a penny into this car I think he should have donated it to the Ford museum or allowed the McQueen family to buy it for whatever a reasonable price would be.



Leno is probably up in the top 5 or so of the list since Leno got to actually drive the car. It wouldn't be too bad for Leno to get it because he would keep it well preserved. I suspect that Leno would fix it up too though.

Iíll go high and bet closer to $4M. Thatís my limit at least. I can get a car loan for that amount, right? This car has to stay in the US!
