Original Ford Bullitt Mustang On Display In The Heart Of Washington, D.C.

An original 1968 Ford Mustang from Bullitt is currently on display in a special glass box in the capital of the United States.

This particular Bullitt Mustang is one of just two units used in the film and was sold to a private buyer.

Until recently, Sean Kiernan had the iconic pony car stored in his Tennessee garage. Two years ago, he contacted Ford and had the vehicle authenticated by Kevin Marti, a man who has a database for every Ford built since 1967. The world got to see the Mustang at this year’s Detroit Auto Show.

Kiernan’s father purchased the Mustang for between $3000 and $6000 in 1974. Today, its value is estimated to be around $4 million. Fortunately, he never decided to mess with its originality and it still features camera mounts welded underneath, missing backup lights which Steve McQueen wanted removed, and a Warner Bros. parking lot sticker.

“To see the Bullitt under glass within steps of the Smithsonian museums, the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument is a fitting tribute to automobiles that have transcended utility to become truly iconic examples of America’s culture,” Ford Mustang chief engineer Carl Widmann said.

Speaking to The Detroit Free Press, Kiernan said having the car displayed in the nation’s capital is a huge thrill.

“It is an amazing honor to be on the mall with the car, very surreal to be between the Capitol building and the monument. The happiest moment for me currently is that my mom is here enjoying everything this week.”
