Hollywood's Speeding Bullitt

Episode DCRB-104

The guys at Gateway Classic Mustang are working hard to finish Chad McQueen's recreation of the 1968 Bullitt Mustang. With the combined expertise of Jason Childress, Lonny Childress, and car historian Matt Stone, this car has become the perfect example of how authenticity can blend with performance and find a healthy compromise. In this episode, we'll watch as the crew puts the finishing touches on this incredible ride. When it's all done, Lonny is the first one out the gate as he takes the new car for an extended test drive through the Missouri countryside. Along the way, he encounters a restored 1968 Dodge Charger. Seeing these two cars together again is almost as thrilling as the original chase scene from Bullitt. Soon afterwards, it's off to Malibu where the final reveal with Chad is a huge success. He loves the car. He's actually on the verge of tears as he looks at this perfect machine and recalls memories of his father, Steve McQueen.
