Jeffrey N. Ross

Fully restored and in much better condition than the original.

The original 1968 Ford Mustang movie car from Bullitt will go up for auction through Mecum in January, but if you're not looking to drop that much money on an unrestored artifact, then check this car out. For enthusiasts who want a Bullitt Mustang that they can actually drive and enjoy, this 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt Replica being sold by Classic Cars of Sarasota is about as good as you're going to get.

Detailed 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt Replica Up For Sale

From the outside, this car nailed the looks of Steve McQueen's hero car starting with a Mustang 2+2 fastback painted in Dark Highland Green with five-spoke American Racing wheels and all the factory badging removed. The listing says that this car has had a "Bullitt package" professionally installed, which appears to be limited to floor mats and some chrome exterior "Bullitt" logos. The coolest part of this replica is that it even comes with a California black license plate with the same "JJZ109" plate number from the movie car!

Even under the hood, this Mustang packs the same "S" code 390 CID V8 that the Bullitt hero car used, but instead of a four-speed manual, this restored replica uses an automatic transmission. The lack of a cue ball shifter might be the biggest omission from this Mustang compared to the original movie car, but it does come with full-length center console for a sportier interior. Despite these minor inconsistencies, this car's interior is still almost identical to the original Bullitt Mustang including the wood grain interior and the three-spoke Cobra-badged steering wheel.

Classic Cars of Sarasota hasn't revealed a price for this high-quality replica, but you can click HERE to make an offer.

    One of Trump's favorite pollsters shows his approval plummeting

    President Trump's approval rating has plummeted since late February, according to the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, which the president frequently cited during his first three years in office. As of Wednesday, 42 percent of Americans told Rasmussen that they approved of the job Trump was doing as president, while 57 percent disapproved. While 42 percent approval is in line with the overall aggregation of polls tracking Trump's approval rating, it is notable from Rasmussen, which tends to show more favorable numbers for Republicans and the president.

The crowd of around 400 people entered into a standoff with Columbus police Thursday night, blocking the intersection of key streets in the Ohio capital for hours, the Columbus Dispatch reported. The demonstration began as a peaceful protest, but news outlets reported protesters began throwing objects like water bottles at officers, who responded by using tear gas on the crowd.

    Gilgo Beach murders: Authorities identify woman who vanished two decades ago

    A woman whose partial remains were found on Long Island nearly a decade ago during a search for a missing sex worker was identified Thursday by authorities. The woman, previously known as “Jane Doe #6,” was identified by Suffolk County Police as Valerie Mack, 24.

    The U.S. Might Revoke Hong Kong's 'Special Status.' Here's What That Means For Business in the Global Financial Hub

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Wednesday that Hong Kong was no longer sufficiently autonomous from mainland China — an assessment that could threaten the city's trading relationship with the U.S. and deal a blow to both American and Chinese companies operating there. The news comes following Beijing's decision late last week to draw up a national security law for Hong Kong. The move came after Hong Kong's Legislative Council failed in its obligations to enact such a law since the former British colony was handed back to China in 1997.

    CDC changes its 'confusing' guidelines on coronavirus and surfaces. Here's what we know.

    Though the coronavirus could be transmitted by touching a surface – and then your nose, mouth or eyes – the likelihood of that is lower than person-to-person contact, which is believed to be the primary way the coronavirus is transmitted. "This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but we are still learning more about how this virus spreads," the CDC's recently updated guidelines say. Dr. Manisha Juthani, an infectious disease doctor and associate professor of medicine at Yale University, told USA TODAY that the newly issued guidelines were "trying to reduce fear and paranoia about methods of transmission."

Musk said he told the astronauts' families, "We've done everything we can to make sure your dads come back OK."

    George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday, according to a database that documents complaints against police.

    Trump's draft executive order targeting social media companies sparks battle inside the White House

    The Trump White House has been embroiled in a vigorous internal debate over whether to issue an executive order aimed at punishing social media companies for perceived political bias, with opposition to the order coming from some of the most conservative parts of the administration. White House sources tell Yahoo News that the office of Vice President Mike Pence, National Economic Council Chairman Larry Kudlow and others are making the argument that it will set a bad precedent to signal that the federal government can go after private companies and seek to penalize them for purely political reasons. “There is pushback from a lot of people” inside the White House, an administration official told Yahoo News, saying there is “a lot of frustration” among advisers who are often some of the president's most loyal backers.

    British mercenaries 'involved in botched operation' backing rebel leader in Libya, according to secret UN report

    Six British citizens including two former Royal Marine commandos have been accused of taking part in a botched mercenary mission to Libya to fight on behalf of renegade general Khalifa Haftar. The five men and one woman are named in a confidential report by the United Nations panel of experts on Libya into a botched mission that ended with the mercenaries making a remarkable sea-borne escape after falling out with their hosts. The men, including former Royal Marines Sean Callaghan Louw and Andrew Scott Ritchie, were among around 20 mercenaries who travelled to Benghazi in eastern Libya in June 2019 in a contract organised by a UAE based company called Opus, according to the report seen by the Daily Telegraph.

    Failed Maduro coup leader flew on pro-govt magnate's plane

    It was mid-January and Jordan Goudreau was itching to get going on a secret plan to raid Venezuela and arrest President Nicolás Maduro when the former special forces commando flew to the city of Barranquilla in Colombia to meet with his would-be partner in arms. To get there, Goudreau and two former Green Beret buddies relied on some unusual help: a chartered flight out of Miami's Opa Locka executive airport on a plane owned by a Venezuelan businessman so close to the government of Hugo Chávez that he spent almost 4 years in a U.S. prison for trying to cover up clandestine cash payments to its allies. The owner of the Venezuela-registered Cessna Citation II with yellow and blue lines, identified with the tail number YV-3231, was Franklin Durán, according to three people familiar with the businessman's movements who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation.

    Rwanda court sentences ex-mayor to life for role in genocide

    Rwanda's High Court on Thursday sentenced a former mayor to life in prison for his role in the country's 1994 genocide, which included leading attacks that resulted in the deaths of around 25,000 ethnic Tutsis in his town. Ladislas Ntaganzwa was one of the top fugitive suspects, accused of playing a key role in the massacre of some 800,000 mostly Tutsi but also moderate Hutus, when he was arrested in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2015. A statement from Rwanda's prosecution authority said the court "convicted him for genocide, extermination as crime against humanity and rape as crime against humanity and sentenced him to life imprisonment."

The oil industries of Iran and Venezuela are both under U.S. sanctions. Iran is providing its fellow OPEC member up to 1.53 million barrels of gasoline and refining components to help ease an acute shortage, the result of the near-complete breakdown in its refining network as well as the sanctions.

    Conservative radio host and recent Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Rush Limbaugh praised President Donald Trump on Wednesday as “clever” for falsely accusing MSNBC host Joe Scarborough of murder, claiming the president is “just throwing gasoline on a fire” because he's “having fun. Over the past several weeks, the president has repeatedly suggested that Scarborough—while he was a member of Congress in 2001—killed his aide Lori Klausutis. Her death, which occurred in Scarborough's Florida congressional office, was ruled an accident due to an abnormal heart rhythm.

The decision on so-called double criminality, a key test for extradition, found that bank fraud accusations against Meng would stand up in Canada. The interim ruling denying Meng's attempt to gain her freedom means she will continue to live in Vancouver under strict bail conditions while her case plays out.
