10. Ford Mustang 390 GT Bullitt
Mustang got its first redesign in 1967 and Ford introduced a slightly bigger and more luxurious model. The design was even better and more elegant and the options list was longer than ever. The performance lovers finally got a big block option in the form of the 390 FE V8 engine which produced 325 HP. However, if you are thinking that this was a crazy fast Mustang that burned rubber in any gear, think again.
This was a fast and powerful car indeed. But it was more of a Grand Tourer than a muscle car. And that is why it is perfect for a long road trip drive. The reason was the engine, which they took from the Thunderbird. But it was more suited for effortless cruising than drag racing.
With bigger dimensions of 1967-68 Mustang and better equipment, this was the perfect engine for making a compact luxury coupe. However, the 390 GT Mustang was immortalized by the legendary Steve McQueen when it appeared as a co-star of the famous detective flick, Bullitt in 1968. The Highland Green 390 Fastback made history with one of the best car chases ever and promoted the 390 engine into legend.
