1. 1968 Ford Mustang GT390 Bullitt: $3.4 Million
One of the biggest Mustang legends ever is the Bullitt movie car. In 1968, the legendary actor Steve McQueen starred in this detective flick, playing a detective who drove a mean-looking 1968 GT390 Fastback. They used two cars during the shooting, but they destroyed one of them. They used the other for close-ups and promotional shoots. McQueen, a racing enthusiast, drove and modified it, preserving it for the future.
They later sold the surviving GT309 car. After several owners, it finally settled on the East Coast of the U.S. For decades, only a few people knew of the car’s whereabouts and the owner refused to sell, even to McQueen himself when he tracked down the vehicle in the late ’70s. Then in 2018, Ford made headlines when it convicted the son of the owner to take the original 1968 GT390 Fastback out of hiding and show the car in public, next to the modern Bullitt Mustang.
Then, in the summer of 2019, the original vehicle once again made headlines when they announced it would be available in the January 2020 Mecum auction. The price of the most valuable Mustang in the world is a staggering $3.4 million dollars, making this rusty ’68 Fastback the record holder in the Mustang world.
These are 20 million-dollar ponycars. They are the highest-priced Mustangs Ford ever sold. Which one was your favorite? If you want one of these cars, you’d better start saving or hope you hit the lottery soon.
