Bullitt ’68 Mustang GT
Steve McQueen is easily one of the biggest car guy actors ever to hit the big screen. Any actor to win their class in a 12 Hours of Sebring race with a cast on his left foot is worthy of being called the “King of Cool.” In Bullitt, much of the race scene was driven by McQueen himself. He enjoyed doing his own stunts and had racing experience, so why not? The Mustang picture became iconic. It isn’t flashy, it is functional. The Highland Green Mustang became extremely popular and tributes still troll the roadways. This fastback was no joke with Ford’s potent 390 FE V8 4-barrel in this car produced 320 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque. Short of the all-mighty 428, this was the most powerful engine in the Mustang for 1968. This car became an instant icon as it ran away from a ’68 Charger on the streets of San Francisco.
