    ‘Bullitt': Mustang from Iconic Steve McQueen Film Found

    It’s one of the most iconic movie automobiles of all time that doesn’t have a name that ends in “-mobile”: The 1968 Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 film Bullitt, often cited as home to one of the greatest car chase scenes ever filmed.
