The long-lost Fastback Mustang from "Bullitt" is finally reprising its place as a public, cultural icon.

Officially unveiled Tuesday, October 30, at the Shell Pioneering Performance Pavilion in booth #60005, the car still has the original green paint job so familiar to fans of its namesake movie. The car was purchased by Bob Kiernan in 1974, and was the family’s daily driver. Steve McQueen himself called Kiernan to try and buy the car in 1977, but Kiernan declined the offer.

The car was shrouded in mystery until Kiernan’s son Sean Kiernan revealed it to the public. With help from Shell and Pennzoil, the Historic Vehicle Association documented the car and added it to the National Historic Vehicle Register.
