2020 Mecum Kissimmee Auction Recap: Mystery Man Bags the Bullitt at $3.74M

Posted by on Monday, January 6, 2020 in Articles

At last, we finally know.  Or do we?  The famous Frank Bullitt Mustang sold Friday afternoon for $3.74M (including buyers premium), but to an unknown phone bidder.  The iconic Mustang, once thought to be lost to the ravages of time, surfaced almost 2 years ago – hidden away in plain sight.  Owner Sean Kiernan and family were all in attendance at the 2020 Mecum Kissimmee Auction on Friday as the much anticipated sale of their beloved Mustang took place.  Thousands filled the arena as the car was rolled in for the auction.  The atmosphere was as surreal as it gets for car guys.  The Bullitt Mustang was going to be sold at no reserve.  Opening bid?  $3,500.  The same price paid for the old movie prop long ago.  Everyone raised their bidders pass and grabbed on to a short piece of time in automotive history.  Final bid was $3.74M and just like that, the car was hammered sold to an unknown buyer over the phone.  Well purchased in our opinion.
