Steve McQueen's 'Bullitt' Ford Mustang sold at auction for $3.4 million

The Bullitt went out with a bang.

The iconic green Ford Mustang from the 1968 Steve McQueen thriller “Bullitt" was sold for $3.4 million at the Mecum Auctions event on Friday. It was the latest chapter in the long-lost car’s story, which may be even better than the movie.

The custom 1968 Mustang GT 390 is one of two -- a dedicated stunt/camera car and this one that McQueen drove for his close-ups -- that were used during the making of the film, known for its legendary chase sequence through the streets of San Francisco. The damaged stunt car was reportedly sent to the crusher after production wrapped, while the hero car ended up in a Road & Track classified ad in 1974 and was bought for $3,500 by a New Jersey man named Robert Kiernan for him and his wife to use as a daily driver.
