Ford Reveals 2019 Ford Mustang BULLITT
McQueen’s Granddaughter Reveals 50th Anniversary Edition Muscle Car at North American International Auto Show
Molly McQueen, Steve McQueen’s granddaughter, stepped out on stage just a few hours ago to reveal the all-new Ford Mustang Bullitt 50th anniversary edition of the iconic muscle car. It was built to remember and celebrate Steve McQueen’s famous ride.
As Ms. McQueen describes it, the new Bullitt is a, “…minimalist work of art that calls back the original ’68.” Would-be drivers will be interested to note the Bullitt is only available with a manual transmission and cueball grip. It features the Mustang GT Premium and Performance Package, NitroPlate exhaust tips, Shelby GT350 intake manifold with 87mm throttle bodies, powertrain control-model calibration, 19 in. aluminum wheels, red Brembo brakes, and optional MagneRide semi-active suspension system. It will only be available in Dark Highland Green or Shadow Black.
News of the new Ford comes not long after news that one of two original movie Mustangs, what they called the “hero car” (the one actually driven by McQueen), had been located in a barn in Nashville. The “jump car,” used for the rougher scenes more likely damage the vehicle, was found last Spring in a junkyard in Mexico.
Some of us — myself included — still dream of getting behind the wheel of a 1968 Fastback version, in Highland Green obviously. But this might well be a suitable alternative. Until that becomes possible I’ll continue looking to replace my first car…a 1970 Dodge Dart.
Here’s Everyman Driver at the debut. Below you’ll see the official Ford video release — and six of the most badass minutes of film ever shown on a movie screen.

About the Author: It might not be too surprising that David Reeder, who never met a $50 word he didn’t like, one of the “leaders” of the pedagogic and frequently obstreperous Breach Bang Clear team — insomuch as they have a leader (the terms orchestra conductor and rodeo clown are equally apropos). A former POG who tastes like chicken, Reeder cannot play the harmonica. He founded Breach-Bang-Clear quite accidentally at his young son’s behest several years ago. He is the Mad Duo’s Chief Wretched Flunky and Breach-Bang-Clear’s HMFIC. A LEO for many years and former AF Security Forces SNCO, he was an O/C at the National Homeland Security Training Center for many years and a longtime MOUT instructor at the Bold Lighting UWS. Reeder has appeared on Fox News Business and written for a number of publications, from US News & World Report and Military.com to RECOIL Magazine and Soldier Systems Daily. All of that sounds way cooler than it actually is. You can read more about him here. Follow his banality on Instagram, @davidreederwrites.
