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 65.2: a 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback Bullitt Tribute and a 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt.

Looking just like the famous movie car, the  '68 Mustang is a 2+2 GT Fastback with American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, and it's been stripped of all the identifying Mustang badges. Unlike the Bullitt hero car, though, this Mustang is powered by a 351W V8 (instead of the GT's 390 CID V8), but it does have some upgrades like a serpentine belt system and aluminum heads. While McQueen's Mustang had a four-speed manual, this car lets the driver shift through a five-speed Tremec manual transmission with an aluminum driveshaft.

The 2019 Mustang Bullitt has the same cool attitude as the '68, but with more style, better performance and cutting-edge technology. This car was sold new in North Carolina, and it is equipped with the Bullitt Electronics Package adding 12-speaker B&O premium audio system, voice-activated navigation and blind-spot monitor. It is also equipped with the Magne-Ride Damping System to make sure this Mustang handles as good as it looks.

These Bullitt Mustangs will be up for auction on November 7 - 9 in addition more than 600 other classic and collector vehicles, so if you want your chance to drive off in your ultimate dream car, be sure you're registered to bid.
