  I love this car's story, bad ass movie car turned family's only ride. Now expecting to bring million+ in early January. Did they sort out the Bullet" Charger and would it be cool to see both together one last time?

The surviving Bullitt Charger is not confirmable.  The paperwork doesn't exist.  Not at Chrysler or at the movie studio.

The case for the Charger's authenticity is circumstantial.  A person who was willing to spend enough time looking at behind-the-scenes pics during filming, and finding a '68 R/T 4spd that was built & sold at just the right time & place, could theoretically fake it.  It might someday be possible to prove that the car is faked, but it probably cannot ever be proven real for sure.  

IMO one of the bigger selling points in favor of the Charger, is that in 50 years there have never been any other contenders.  It may/many not be real, but its the only car that has ever occupied the position of being the real one in people's minds since 1968.

Such a cool car and even more cool history that the family has hung on to it all these years. Personally, I wish his son would keep it. I am guessing 4 mil+ to the next guy that just has to have it.

I agree with both the opinion on the Charger and the estimate on the Mustang.  I would love for the Charger to be proven, but right now its just circumstantial.  That Mustang is hitting all the right points to set a record and I think it will be in the millions as well.

For a long time it wasn't.  That was the whole reason it went into hiding, even McQueen tried to buy it at one time.

I would not mind a small bet that it does not reach much over 2 million......If it gets that high.

I dunno.  The Bullitt Mustang is pretty high on the list of desirable muscle cars.  There is hardly much above it. 

But I think it would have brought more money (inflation adjusted) once or twice in the past.  The best time to sell it was probably during the bubble-inflated economy of the mid-2000s.
