Visitors to America’s Car Museum (ACM) in Tacoma, Washington, will be able to view one of the most iconic movie cars of all time-the 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 Fastback, aka Bullitt Mustang-until July 14.
ACM, an auto museum located adjacent to the Tacoma Dome, has become a leading destination for international travelers to the Pacific Northwest due to its eclectic collection of iconic and everyday vehicles from bygone eras, according to museum officials. As part of ACM’s ongoing rotational displays and exhibits, the special Bullitt display gives guests another reason to visit the four-story, 165,000-square-foot facility.
“We’re thrilled that the owner of the Bullitt Mustang agreed to let us display it through July 14,” said America’s Automotive Trust CEO David Madeira. “It’s an honor to have such a significant vehicle, the 21st listed with the Historic Vehicle Association’s National Historic Vehicle Register, available to our guests.
“The prominence of the Bullitt Mustang cannot be overstated. It continues in a long line of memorable vehicles and displays that make the America’s Car Museum such a great destination for car and history lovers alike.”
The Bullitt Mustang display is joined by Ford’s new 2019 Mustang Bullitt edition courtesy of Northwest Ford Dealer Association, which takes many cues from the movie car including a Dark Highland Green paint scheme, subtle chrome accents on the outer edge of the wheels, grille and windows, and minimal badging featuring the Bullitt logo.
“Sharing Bullitt was always the collective dream of my father and I; we spoke of it often,” said Sean Kiernan, owner of the Bullitt Mustang. “The continued interest in the car, as well as our family story, and the ability to share it through the display at America’s Car Museum is something I am proud of, and know my father would be too.”
