Thanks to Wikipedia! The back of the camera story behind the famous Mustang versus Charger chase in Steve McQueen's movie "Bullitt"! Can you believe that Ford wanted to put the bad guys in a Galaxie? Holy Cow, that would have changed the whole experience!!!
In a magazine article many years later, one of drivers involved in the chase sequence remarked that the stock Dodge 440s were so much faster than the Mustang that the drivers had to keep backing off the accelerator to prevent the Dodge from easily pulling away from the Mustang. Of the two Mustangs, one was scrapped after filming due to liability concerns and the surviving backup car was sold to an employee of Warner Brothers' editing department. The car changed hands several times, and Steve McQueen at one point made an unsuccessful attempt to buy it. The Mustang is rumored to have been kept in a barn in the Ohio River Valley by an unknown owner.
