The Long-Lost "Crushed" Bullitt Stunt Car was Found in Mexico

The legend has been the same for decades: There were two 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastbacks provided by the Blue Oval as stunt cars in 1968's Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen. Both were Highland Green with aftermarket Cragar wheels, equipped with howling S-code 390s and four-speeds -- though sometimes a 289 was claimed to be the nimble jump car's motivator -- and both were modified by Hollywood car builder Max Balchowsky to fit the interior movie lighting and cameras while also upgrading the chassis and suspension for those famous jumps through the streets of San Francisco. MORE INFO

Quick thinking Oz. He'd have been perfect for it. How about it Steven, looks like you let one slip right through your fingers, so to say. LOL!

Yes, sadly it did ...

Needless to say, I know where all the local Mustangs are (as well as about any old vehicle).

If I remember right that one was in the state of Baja California.

I did let a 72 Q code get by me but it was a confiscated car (back in the late 70's) and the Federal police wouldn't let it go.  After my inquiry it accidentally burned.

Yikes sounds like it was a little to "hot" to handle. Sometimes you have to know when to walk away, and then again when to run!!!
