Bullitt-Style 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback 5-Speed

This 1968 Ford Mustang underwent construction in 2018 and 2019, overseen by The Mustang Workshop located in Hook, United Kingdom. The project took its cues from the 1968 fastback featured in the film Bullitt. The vehicle boasts a body replicating the original by Dynacorn, painted in Highland Green, and is propelled by a Ford Racing 347ci stroker V8, mated to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Complementing features encompass a Currie 9″ rear axle, power rack-and-pinion steering, adaptable front coilovers, Koni rear shocks, Wilwood front disc brakes with power assistance, a Holley QFT carburetor, an Edelbrock intake manifold, Patriot headers, and a MagnaFlow exhaust system.

In 2022, it changed hands to the present owner, who entrusted The Mustang Workshop with installing an Old Air Products climate control system before importing the vehicle to the United States. Cobra Automotive in Wallingford, Connecticut, then made additional customizations, adding a Philco radio with Bluetooth connectivity, a Shelby-style steering wheel, an Eaton Truetrac limited-slip differential, and a Cold Case aluminum radiator. This Bullitt-inspired Mustang is currently available in California, offered on consignment by a dealer and comes complete with an owner’s manual, a Deluxe Marti report, a collection of refurbishment images, duplicate build receipts, and a clean Montana title held by the owner’s LLC.

The Dynacorn reproduction fastback body is finished in Highland Green with a black taillight panel. Bullitt-style details include hood-mounted turn indicators, a black fuel cap, and a base 1967 grille with the center bar and emblems removed. US-specification headlights along with LED taillights are fitted, and the reverse lights have been removed.

Black 15″ Torq Thrust D wheels with polished lips are mounted with 225/60 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, and a full-size steel spare is stored in the trunk. The car is equipped with Total Control Products (TPS) power rack-and-pinion steering, and the suspension features TPS coilovers up front and Koni shocks in the rear. Power-assisted Wilwood front disc brakes and 11″ rear drum brakes are fitted.

The interior is trimmed in black vinyl upholstery along with wood appliqué that accents the dashboard and door panels. The floor section beneath the seats was modified and lowered prior to being painted and covered with Dynamat sound-deadening material. Appointments include a Quartz analog clock, lap belts, a modified factory Philco radio with AM/FM and Bluetooth connectivity, an aftermarket sound system, and an Old Air Products climate control system.

The leather-wrapped Shelby-style steering wheel features a Shelby horn button and frames an 8k-rpm tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, and supplementary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 1,500 miles, approximately 200 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
