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. Most noticeable exterior design changes were the larger/deeper rill mouth and concave tail lights. Ford then provided minor changes for the second model year in '68 focused on safety such as the two-spoke energy-absorbing steering wheel, shoulder belts and the side markers. These 'Stangs had serious muscle grunt for the street with 390 GT and 4-speed Manual Transmission having quarter mile times of approximately 13 seconds at over 105 mph.
Away from the showroom the Mustang received a mega marketing jolt of popularity when the 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback reached iconic status in the film Bullitt. The movie featured Steve McQueen, the highest paid Hollywood actor of the day, known as the "King of Cool".
This car is an immaculate recreation of the Highland Green Bullitt that will satisfy your desire to be cool-like-McQueen. Powered by a rebuilt date coded '68 390 GT V8. The intake is a rare original 'S' 390 GT manifold with Holley carburetor. The 4-speed Transmission is a correct date coded Top loader with a Hurst Shifter. To harness the power the front brakes are now power disc and not the original stock drum brakes. The wheels delivering the ground pounding power are the American Racing Torque Thrust D as used in the movie with bite from the Firestone radials. There are numerous interior and exterior changes to authenticate this beautiful Bullitt recreation as per the movie. Exterior look achieved with the familiar Mustang pieces including the GT fog lights, the running pony grille emblem, the Mustang lettering and even the GT badges removed.
