The THUNDERBALL promotional DB5 which was never in the movie just sold for $6,385,000. IMO the Bullitt Mustang is more valuable because it was in the movie and it was driven by Steve McQueen.

I wouldn't be surprised at that number, at all. Sky's the limit on this one. I can see the Henry Ford museum stepping up, Petersen for sure, and other ticket-selling venues. Car would be a big draw.

Ok, so there's 3 of us thinking $10 M isn't out of line. The announcement coming this early also helps any interested parties get their financial ducks in a row. This will be a fun one to watch...

Wow . . . three guesstimates that are 8-figures-on-the-left-side-of-the-decimal-point. Sounds out of the realm of reality at first thought then you realize: it is THE car from THE most famous movie car chase of all time, driven by one of the most legendary Hollywood actors of all time, surfaces in barn-find condition after a mysterious decades-long hibernation where folks weren’t even sure if it even still existed & Ford STILL builds Bullitt Mustangs today because of THIS car. This one pushes all the right buttons and the sky’s the limit. Frankly, I have absolutely no idea what it will hammer at but there’s no number that will surprise me.

You guys sure have alot of renewed faith in the "immobile baby boomer" population who just last week were said to be the sole reason the collector car market was predicted to collapse after the last auction results ...Go Boomers!

You seem to be forgetting the pedigree of this car. Can you think of a reason why Ford wouldn't be interested in purchasing this car? Anyone out there who would want to buy the car and have deeper pockets than Ford? How about The Brothers? Or as stated, the Petersen Museum through one of it's deep pockets donators?

How about this . . . I am changing my guesstimate to $15 million.

I almost spit out my coffee laughing, too funny.

That said, no result would surprise me. My guess is 4 million.

Depends heavily on if two very wealthy guys want the bragging rights to owning it. It could then go well into 8 figures. This stopped being a car some time ago. It's like calling the Mona Lisa a picture of some girl.

Ford, Petersen museum....the decision of whether to buy this car by either will be left up to a baby boomer in the company

Of course! Who else would be in that position?
