2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Joins Our Long-Term Stable

  2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Joins Our Long-Term Stable Eyeing the sweet spot between performance and practicality, we wrangle possibly the best all-around Mustang for 40,000 miles of servitude. Our test vehicle wears the customary Dark Highland Green Metallic paint, though less traditional buyers also can have their Bullitts coated in Shadow Black. Still, even those who decry the movie references can appreciate how the rich hue sparkles in the sun and looks sinister at night. Subtle yet classy, the Bullitt edition sheds the Mustang's familiar galloping-pony emblem in the chrome-ringed grille and adds brightwork encircling the side windows.

Larry Thomas was a Test Technician in the Road Test Data Acquisition Group in 1969 for Ford Motor Company. On September 11, 1969, Larry and his buddy and coworker Bill Russo were chatting about Bill's interest in purchasing a new family car. Bill asked Larry if he'd like to tag along the next day since he was going to go down to Ford's resale lot. Larry eagerly accepted; a trip down to the resale lot was a treat, especially for a 22-year-old always on the lookout for that next Hi-Po Ford.

The resale lot opened around 8:30 a.m., so Bill and Larry got a head start and were at the gate around 8:15. Soon a line began to develop behind them. Through the gate Bill spotted a Pinto wagon he was going to check out, while Larry noted a black Mustang SportsRoof with gold striping that he wanted to have a look at.

Bullitt Bonanza: 1968, 2019 Bullitt Mustangs Up For Grabs

  Bullitt Bonanza: 1968, 2019 Bullitt Mustangs Up For Grabs That's a lot of Dark Highland Green Mustang attitude! Even if you're not a Mustang enthusiast, there's always something special about seeing one of these cars painted up in Dark Highland Green thanks to the movie Bullitt. Since Steve McQueen's original 1968 Mustang Fastback, there have been three special-edition Bullitt Mustangs in 2001, 2008 and 2019, and each has become a modern classic.We already saw a rare, black 2001 Mustang GT Bullitt that GAA Classic Cars will be auctioning off next month, but if the iconic green is more your style, then check out this auction's lot numbers 65.1 and 65.

Customarily, the gate opened, you walked up to the office, noted the number on the car, and asked for the keys. Larry checked all the boxes and was the first to the Mustang, which, now visible, was wearing "BOSS 429" lettering inside a gold C stripe, reminiscent of the ones applied to the 1969 Boss 302. The Mustang also featured a gold hood, decklid, hoodscoop, rear slats, and tail panel.

Even though this car was built for Bunkie, Kar-Kraft likely tried a few things out since this was one of seven Boss 429 Mustang prototypes.

Inside, the Mustang sported a rolled and pleated saddle interior, four-speed transmission, and A/C. Larry noted how strong the car sounded as he cruised around the resale lot. As he came back toward the stall from his short cruise, he noted half a dozen eager employees waiting for their turn in the Mustang. Every one of us has experienced that feeling of having something someone else wants, and Larry was no different. So, instead of handing the keys over to the next test driver, he headed back to the office and said, "I'll take it," to the attendee. To the tune of $2,950, Larry was now the owner of this oddball Mustang.

Largest Mustang Gathering In The World Breaks Records

  Largest Mustang Gathering In The World Breaks Records This is the largest Mustang gathering ever! Mustang owners flocked from all over Europe to meet together in what has set a new world record for the most Ford Mustang cars to gather in one location at a time. The new number to beat is 1,326 Mustangs, beating out the prior record of 960 vehicles at one gathering - this record was also set by Ford in Toluca, Mexico back in December 2017. This was a treat to see as there were Mustangs there from every generation and trim, and there were even several rare ‘Stangs in attendance.

A boss is a powerful, usually unique monster that is fought to accomplish an objective, be it the advancement or completion of a quest or minigame, or as part of a team player-versus-monster event. Many quests feature boss fights at their climaxes

Knudsen Is Fired!
Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen was called into Henry Ford II's office on September 9, 1969. The conversation was brief, with II stating that Bunkie's time at Ford "just didn't work out." Bunkie made the following statement to the press: "I want to make clear today's decision, in my opinion, is unwarranted in view of the accomplishments the company has made during my brief tenure." The snowball effect of Mr. Knudsen's firing would not be known to Larry for many years. Yes, this is where we tell you Larry Thomas ended up purchasing Bunkie Knudsen's personal Boss 429 Mustang!

Larry and His BossKK1205 was one of seven prototype Boss 429s created by Kar-Kraft for Ford Motor Company. Number 1205 appears to have been built for only one purpose: to appease the boss. Along with the aforementioned cosmetic changes, Bunkie's Boss had cast-iron heads, something that caused strife at Kar-Kraft when Larry wrote them in March 1970 asking for a set of aluminum heads. His request for the heads would create a domino effect headache that Kar-Kraft just didn't want to deal with, so they vetoed the aluminum heads.

Long-Neglected 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 Roars Back

He and a buddy, Tom Landi, were on their way home from one of the shows held in Hershey, Pennsylvania, back in 1985 when they drove past a group of four Mustangs parked in front of a barn in Annville. This Boss and a yellow 1970 Boss 302 were standouts, "but he wanted an extreme amount of money for the yellow Boss," Dennis remembers of the man offering the cars for sale.

Larry ended up having a blast with the car, updating the Cougar scoop (prototype Boss 429s wore them) with a custom 429 unit. Weekend activities involved cruising Woodward Ave. and Telegraph Rd., and frequent trips to Detroit and the Milan Dragway where he'd run A/Stock, dipping the B9 into the low 13s, which was considerably faster than stock Boss 429s.

Larry's tenure of ownership lasted for just a few years in the early 1970s. He eventually sold the Mustang to Stan Webster, a welder from Ypsilanti. Through conversations with Stan's brothers Steven and Kelly, the car remained in the family until the early 1980s, with Stan rebuilding it with intentions of going IMSA racing. The 429 was separated and sold, and the car languished around until Stan decided to part it out.

Lasting Legacy
Larry ended up learning he had owned Bunkie Knudsen's old Boss 429 Mustang shortly after purchasing it. It wasn't a big deal. He remembered bumping into Larry Shinoda, telling him about the car, and being brushed off. History would show us that Bunkie's old Boss was nearly an identical build, aesthetically, to Smokey Yunick's Boss 302; the cars were often confused with one another, and people thought that they were the same car at different stages. We know now that wasn't the case.
