Steve McQueen’s Bullitt Mustang expected to auction for huge money

The famous green Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 Warner Bros. film “Bullitt” is headed to auction in January, in Kissimmee, Fla., and if Mecum Auctions gets what they are expecting, the car could sell for more than $3.5 million— that’s the record price for an American muscle car. According to Hagerty, an insurer and valuator of classic vehicles, the “Bullitt” Mustang could end up the most expensive Mustang ever sold at auction, surpassing a 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake that Mecum sold for $2.2 million at the 2019 Kissimmee auction.

Could it be yours? Well, you can dream. Here’s a look at Steve McQueen’s “Bullitt” Mustang.
