Mecum Kissimmee 2020 runs from Jan. 2-12, taking over nearly every last bit of Osceola Heritage Park. This year, there’s even something for classic movie enthusiasts. This year’s Mecum Kissimmee focal piece is the 1968 Ford Mustang GT from the classic film Bullitt, driven by Steve McQueen is slated to cross the auction block.
The car, one of two ’68 Mustangs used in the movie, became known as “Bullitt” after the motion picture. In the movie, McQueen as Lt. Frank Bullitt, sped around the busy streets of San Francisco, including the famous scene where he chases a black Dodge Charger, and should become one of the most valuable American-model collector cars to ever gavel at auction.
After Bullitt filming ended, the car was sold to a private buyer, but it resurfaced during the 50-year anniversary of the movie in 2018. The car—considered by many to be the world’s single most recognizable and celebrated vintage Mustang—remains in original condition and retains many distinguishable and unique elements from the movie.
Among other 3,500 classic cars on the Mecum Kisimmee 2020 “must see” list: a 1967 Ford Mustang “Eleanor”, one of 11 cars built for use in the 2000 film “Gone in 60 Seconds” starting Nicholas Cage, a 1970 440-horsepower Dodge Charger, one of only two in the pink exterior/black interior color combo, a Dodge Hemi Charger and Plymouth Hemi GTX, both from 1971, a 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, a racy 2019 McLaren Senna (one of just 500 produced), a 1955 Chevrolet Aztec, a 1968 Corvette L88 convertible, and much, much more, along with the annual Road Art auctions on Jan. 6, 10 and 11.
