    Already an outstanding success, the Mustang was turned into a legend overnight following its appearance in the Steve McQueen film, 'Bullitt' in 1968. In one of the most spectacular car chases ever seen in a motion picture, McQueen's maverick cop wowed audiences as he pursued two hit-men in a high-speed chase through the streets of San Francisco. The resulting scene promptly became an unforgettable part of cinematic history and confirmed the Mustang as one of the all time classics.

    This car was manufactured in 1967 at San Jose, California complete with fastback body and the 390ci (6.4-litre) high-performance V8 engine. The DSO tag confirms that it was built on 21st September and equipped with two front bucket seats, black interior, four-speed manual transmission, and the optional limited-slip differential. The Mustang was delivered to Los Angeles, California.

    In 2008, this car completed an exhaustive, professional, bare-metal restoration totalling over 2,000 man-hours using original Ford or American high-performance parts. This comprehensive rebuild included the replacement of any damaged or corroded body panels and the replacement of all chrome and brightwork with new parts. A complete new deluxe interior was fitted, including new carpets, headlining, seating upholstery, and the rare overhead console with integrated map lights. The original wood grain dashboard, instrumentation, and door panel inserts were retained.

    Replicating the 'Bullitt' Mustang, the exterior is finished in correct Highland Green metallic and, as per the film car, it is devoid of any insignias and has blacked-out grille and tail lamp details. As such, it is virtually indistinguishable from the McQueen car. Mechanically, the Mustang has been fully rebuilt. The original 390ci 'Big Block' V8 engine is now unleaded compatible, while the incorporation of numerous tuning parts ensures that power now far exceeds the original's 320bhp maximum. To handle this increase, the transmission, suspension, and brakes were up-rated appropriately.

    At the restoration's completion the Mustang was imported into the UK. Owned by the current vendor since 2014, it has been serviced regularly, MoT'd, and fitted with a new competition clutch. This unique car is not just an ordinary Mustang; it has been restored to a far higher standard than the original and has the look, sound, and - even more so - the authentic feel of the car Steve McQueen drove in the legendary chase. Converted to right-hand drive and built for reliable everyday use, it embodies the dream of driving a perfect recreation of the world's most famous Mustang.
