I recently had the opportunity to spend some time driving Ford's modern day interpretation of the Mustang Bullitt and came away wanting one in the worst way. It's true that the late model Mustang has issues, but no other car is able to channel that much soul, charisma and character through its steering column. The only thing better would be an actual 1968 Mustang GT 350 Fastback like the one Steve McQueen actually drove in the film. Fans of the car and McQueen are one step closer to realizing this dream thanks to the McQueen estate, which has authorized the building of official replica Bullit Mustangs in honor of the film's 40th anniversary. Ownership of the Bullit name is shared by the McQueen family and Warner Bros., so we're not sure who would actually build these replica Bullitts, but we'll be first in line when they eventually surface.

      Wasn't McQueen's Mustang a 390, not a 350? I don't think Ford offered a 350 in 1968.

      I am currently finalizing a "tribute" 68 Bullitt Mustang. I have been approched by finance, and would like to build more. Would someone from the Mcqueen family contact me please! I'm serious! (magazine article will be publised apon completion.)

      GT 390. A GT350 is a Shelby.
        • 7 Years Ago
        GT-350 was an arbitrary number chosen by Shelby all had 289CID motors ('65-'67) or 302s ('69-'71)

      There a a number of 68 Bullitt replicas out there. Matt Stone (Former MT editor) did a gret article on them for the now defunct Motor Trend Classic magazine a couple of years ago.

      Hopefully it isn't done by Unique Performance.

      Bullitt was also misspelled several times in the article.
