Ford likely revealing Bullitt Mustang at Detroit Auto Show

  Ford likely revealing Bullitt Mustang at Detroit Auto Show This on top of the likely Barrett-Jackson auction Jan. 19.We reported earlier this week that the Bullitt was likely to appear Jan. 19 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., where Ford is selling a "special new Ford Mustang" with proceeds to benefit the Boys Republic, a school for troubled teens in Chino Hills, Calif., from which McQueen graduated in 1946 and where he visited throughout his movie career.

The first of the new limited-edition 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitts will be auctioned for charity , benefiting Steve McQueen's old school. “We are very excited with the event at Barrett - Jackson that will auction off the first new Bullitt Mustang ,” said Dan Jones, a Ford spokesman.

If you didn’t hear about the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt reveal at the Detroit Show, stop reading and open this in a new tab. The good news is that the auction , at Barrett - Jackson Scottsdale, will benefit Boys Republic, which is a nonprofit school and treatment community for troubled kids.

If you didn't hear about the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt reveal at the Detroit Show, stop reading and open this in a new tab. Back? We can't believe it either: the original Bullitt movie car next to a new modern Bullitt? Factor in that it's not just an aesthetic upgrade, either – the new Bullitt makes 475 horsepower and features some other exclusive upgrades and GT350 parts. It's objectively awesome. But if you want the very first customer Bullitt, VIN 001 to be specific, you'd better be OK with paying a premium.

The good news is that the auction, at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, will benefit Boys Republic, which is a nonprofit school and treatment community for troubled kids. There's a McQueen connection here, too: he graduated from the school back in 1946. And all of the proceeds will go to the school. That's kind of a feel-good way to pay what's likely to be a real premium for the first dark green coupe off the line.
