October 17, 1968 - this was the moment when Warner Brothers/Seven Arts revealed the movie Bullitt, a 113 minutes film featuring a 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 driven by Steve McQueen. Now, as a tribute to that amazing car, Gateway Classic Mustang will be offering a limited edition Mustang called the 1968 Steve McQueen Signature Mustang painted in the same green as the car in the movie. We think it can go without saying that this car will be extremely rare, and therefore extremely expensive.
The Steve McQueen Signature Mustang will be powered by a Roush engine that will deliver an impressive 450 HP and will be mated to a Keisler five-speed manual. The car will sit on a set of American Racing wrapped around BF Goodrich tires. The sporty wheels will be combined with 12-inch/11-inch front/rear Baer brakes and a coilover suspension to keep everything civilized.
The car’s interior will be inspired by the original 1967/68 Ford Mustangs, but they will get air conditioning and new gauges to make the drive a little more comfortable.
