Personally I'd love to hear this car is the real deal, and I think its cool that the story is generating more public interest in our beloved Bullitts. However really as a sceptic who already owns an old Mustang magazine detailing 1 fake bullitt, and who is well aware how much of an auto faking industry there is south of the border (no disprespect, in fact my wife is latina), I have my doubts on this story too.
When it comes down to it what is being presented so far is this:
1. A little known web journo makes a claim that the car has been found, no ifs or buts - ITS BEEN FOUND! Given that no investigation by any credible sources has yet been completed (ie MOC judges, Kevin Marti or perhaps David Kunz) even making such a headline smells of attention whoring. (IMHO of course!)
2. A 68 fastback, (easy enough to buy in various states of repair, even in Mexico) seemingly missing the movie damage and many parts (e.g. FIV Secura steering wheel) appears claiming to be the long lost 2nd movie car. Of course (surprise) it will be worth millions...
3. The only evidence offered so far, is a correctly numbered door VIN tag (easily acquired and age faked), and a home made rusty generator vent mounted into the LHS rear wheelhouse. (not hard to make and the only person who could dispute its form (original fitter) is now conveniently dead.
4. Despite the movie and its signature cars being famous (yes, even in Latin America, there is an MOC in Mexico), AND the VIN of the missing car being well known in Mustang circles (and published on the web too), the car in question passed through numerous owners / enthusiasts and got lots of work done on it (allegedly changing colours several times) without ANYBODY clicking to its real value and car world celebrity status.
But hey anything is possible, maybe the studio staffer figured he would make a few bucks selling it instead of crushing it as he/she was told to at the time? And maybe given its beat up state it wound up south of the border, unable to pass inspection stateside?
Maybe it is real? If so then great, put it under the microscope from the MOC judges and Kevin Marti and PROVE IT! Until then I'm calling another BS Bullitt. But that's just me...
