Mystery surrounds $3.74M sale of 1968 Mustang Bullitt: ‘Only one person knows’ buyer

The mystery continues. And so do the tears.

The 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT driven by Steve McQueen in Hollywood’s legendary action film of the same name emerged to international celebration after being hidden in a family’s garage for 40 years.

Now, after touring America and the world for two years, the pony car has been sold to an anonymous bidder for a record $3.4 million — $3.74 million after commissions and fees.

“Only one person knows the buyer, and that’s the guy he was on the phone with,” said Sean Kiernan, who put his father’s beloved Highland Green Mustang on the auction block in Kissimmee, Florida, on Friday. “Eventually, it’ll come out. But right now, no one knows. Only Frank. Frank is the only one trusted to know.”
