This could be the cheapest way to channel your inner Steve McQueen.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 film Bullitt, Ford launched a special edition 2019 Mustang Bullitt that pays homage to the original Mustang 390 GT driven by Steve McQueen in the legendary car chase set on the streets of San Francisco. Prices start at $47,495 including the destination charge, but if you can’t afford this an opportunity has emerged to own one for a lot less.
A brand new 2019 Mustang Bullitt is being auctioned off by Dream Giveaway in an online raffle – and it requires a mere $3 to enter. This will grant you a single ticket, but if you want a better chance of winning the raffle you can pay up to $5,000 for 7,200 tickets. It all goes towards a good cause too, as donations will help support a wealth of charities including New Beginning Children’s Homes, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Honor Flight of West Central Florida, Detroit Rescue Mission, Smile Network International, National Guard Educational Fund and Bright Pink.
Like all other 2019 Mustang Bullitts, the limited-edition muscle car is powered by a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 that produces 480 hp. To make it stand out, Dream Giveaways also installed an optional Bullitt Technology Package and Magneride Damping System worth $3,800 as well as specially selected genuine Ford Performance parts, including a short-throw shifter, lowering springs and Bullitt-proof half shafts.
This isn’t the only Bullitt Mustang the winner will walk away with, either.
As part of the same raffle, Dream Giveaway is also offering an immaculate 1968 Mustang Bullitt Restomod. The fully restored Mustang accurately mimics the look of the legendary movie car. Among the list of comprehensive upgrades includes a classic 390ci Ford engine with dual four-barrel carbs and intake, a modern five-speed manual transmission and a custom dual exhaust.
It’s also been fitted with independent front suspension, adjustable billet coilovers, beefy four-piston, four-wheel disc brakes and a Ford 9-inch rear end. Inside, the restomod features redesigned bucket seats, a vintage air conditioning system, and electronic Classic Instrument gauges. According to the listing, the classic Bullitt Mustang took $150,000 to build. The winner will also receive $25,000 to go towards paying the taxes. For the lucky winner, this could be the cheapest way to channel your inner Steve McQueen.
