Wow, thats a pretty nice build. I like how they kept the original weathered paint.

Interesting. If other restored or partially restored replica Bullitt movie cars bring over $50K, I see little reason why this one shouldn't. Other than the paint wasn't totally redone, the interior bits that look like crap weren't refurbished or replaced saving the rebuilder 25K.....

I was thinking the same thing. I've seen fully restored examples go for around $60k, some even with a 302 and not the 390. I like the original look, assuming they checked and fixed and possible rust spots.

Mechanically top notch while the looks are indeed "as used in the movie". This reminds me of an old Dolly Parton quote: "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap." I like it. Don't want it, but I like it.
