Steve McQueen's 1968 Ford Mustang GT 'Bullitt' makes $3.7m

A beat up, dull green 1968 Ford Mustang GT driven by Steve McQueen in the movie "Bullitt" just became the most valuable Ford Mustang ever sold at auction. It went for $3.7m in Kissimmee, Florida.

The vendor was Sean Kiernan, whose late father Robert Kiernan purchased the car for $3,500 in 1974. The 10 minute 'Bullitt' chase scene is considered the first and still one of the best 'modern' auto chase scenes. It set the standard for Hollywood car chases for generations.
