On the road show
Checking In With The Original Bullitt Mustang
The original Ford Mustang Bullitt has been working hard at the 2018 SEMA show. The car, along with it’s attentive owner, Sean Kiernan, have been on an international tour that has no end in sight. Let us just say that the car looks great. Plain and simple. Its dark green paint shows the wear and tear, but Kiernan is committed to keeping its original look, just as his father did after he purchased the car in 1974.
Kiernan has taken the car all over the country and attended a few events across the pond. And he doesn’t expect to slow down. He plans to take the Mustang to California after SEMA, and then to Le May – America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington. “This is a timeline of my life and I’m not one to erase history,” he said. Instead of restoring the car, Kiernan preserves its integrity including paint cracks, rust and all. We should note that this is a far more difficult feat than a full restoration. And because of this, Kiernan is the only one who works on the Mustang. He plans to fly from his home in Nashville to the museum in Tacoma to perform any maintenance, or even to move the car. “I’ll always be the one that puts in the blood, sweat and tears,” he said. The Mustang is a true labor of love, and Kiernan wouldn’t dream of selling it. See all of its glory, right here.
