Provenance is sometimes the cynosure of value. There probably are several Mustangs the same year and model as this one, with dents, rust, and scratches to boot, but want for the iconic history of this gem. $4 million, though?:huh:
$300,000 gift on behalf of a one time at risk youth to other at risk youths is nothing to sneeze at.
"Ford had announced last week that it would be auctioning off the first of the special edition cars, Bullitt Mustang VIN 001, in the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction. Proceeds of the sale will go completely to Boys Republic, a school and treatment community for at-risk youth. It’s a charity with serious meaning for the Steve McQueen Estate, since the man himself graduated from there in 1946."
Rick from pawnstars. TV show would. He is a huge fan. In fact he bought a fastback all rusted and had count custom s. Put in 60 k. Just to clone that car
