Product Description

Bullitt/Steve McQueen Crash Scene | 1968 Dodge Charger / 1968 Ford Mustang | GreenLight Dioramas Series 2 | 1:64 Scale Diecast in Window Box (56020 Bullitt)

 

Two 1968 390 CID Ford Mustangs (325 bph) were used for the chase scene. The Mustangs' engines, brakes and suspensions were heavily modified for the chase by the veteran car racer Max Balchowsky. Ford Motor Company had also originally loaned two Ford Galaxie sedans that were intended to be used in the chase scenes, but producers found the cars entirely too heavy to put through jumps over the hills of San Francisco without the suspensions of the cars being severly damaged. The Galaxie sedans were replaced with two 1968 440 CID/375 bph Dodge Chargers that were bought outright from Glendale Dodge in Glendale, California. The engines in both Chargers were left largely unmodified, but the suspensions were upgraded to cope with the demands of the stunt work.
