They made subtle modifications to the Mustangs and this car now for sale has these McQueen movie car mods, representing a fully maintained, stunning, usable, reliable Bullitt V8 muscle car and investment. EXTERIOR Highland green excellent paintwork, with colour matching mirror/s (can use 1 per the movie or add the second), side sill rails, debadged, satin blacked rear light panel and gas cap (McQueen wanted a cooler look and the director needed to eliminate the camera car reflection).
