Found – the Real 1968 Bullitt Mustang
Here is an in depth and terrific story by Larry Webster from our friends at Hagerty
“Steve McQueen made one last effort to buy his favorite Mustang in 1977. He sent a letter, typed on a single piece of heavy off-white vellum, to the car’s owner in New Jersey. The logo for his movie company, Solar Productions, was embossed in the upper left corner and opposite that resided the date, December 14, 1977. The letter is just four sentences.
“Again,” it begins, “I would like to appeal to you to get back my ’68 Mustang.” McQueen offered no specifics as to why this particular Ford was important to him, except to say that he wanted to keep it unrestored and that it was “simply personal with me.” Click here for full article!

As you move from “months” to “years,” the gas tank rusts (at least the metal tank on a vintage car does), the brake and clutch hydraulics begin to dissolve into the brake fluid, and the rings start to stick to the cylinder walls…” Click here for more
Barrett Jackson Auction – 1966 Shelby GT350 Protoype #001:
Chassis #SFM6S001 is a historic pre-production prototype. The very first 1966 Shelby GT350 built, it is documented in the SAAC Shelby American World Registry. It’s powered by a matching-numbers high-performance 289ci V8 engine and 4-speed T10 manual transmission. Conceived and built to homologate Ford’s wildly successful Mustang for SCCA competition, Carroll Shelby’s original GT350 exemplified Ford’s “total performance” mantra and conferred an unbeatable image on the trendsetting new Pony car… Read more here

Mustangs are our passion!
We drive them, race them, restore them, preserve them and just plain enjoy them. The Golden Horseshoe Mustang Association was originally started as a Classic Mustang club in 1995 by a core group of Classic Mustang enthusiasts in the Greater Toronto Area. Over the years we have become an all years Mustang club and one of the largest Mustang club in Canada.
We participate in various events, car shows, travel, charities and much more throughout the year. If you interested in the car hobby, our many social events, then please feel free to attend one of our monthly meetings held at the Ford HQ in Oakville Ontario or Contact us for more info.
