Ford likely revealing Bullitt Mustang at Detroit Auto Show

  Ford likely revealing Bullitt Mustang at Detroit Auto Show This on top of the likely Barrett-Jackson auction Jan. 19.We reported earlier this week that the Bullitt was likely to appear Jan. 19 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., where Ford is selling a "special new Ford Mustang" with proceeds to benefit the Boys Republic, a school for troubled teens in Chino Hills, Calif., from which McQueen graduated in 1946 and where he visited throughout his movie career.

A collection, which includes one of every year 5.0L Fox-body, is heading to Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale next week. Dennis Collins is selling 18 Mustangs, ranging from 1979 to 1993, all with no reserve and each with less than 20,000 original miles. Every Mustang is a beautiful execution of the original model and each one showroom fresh.

Collins is back again, after setting six Barrett-Jackson records last year in Scottsdale, he's setting up to do the same this year. Last year, six of the eight Mustangs he sold broke records for each year and model of Mustang, respectively. Last year the records included a 1994 Mustang convertible, which sold for $44,000 and a 1985 SVO hatchback in Jalapeo Red with 7 actual miles, it sold for $63,800. Then there was the 1990 model GT 7UP Limited Edition, which sold for a whopping $82,500.

Collins, who is known for selling Jeep parts with Collins Bros Jeep, is an avid collector/flipper, and friends of the Gas Monkey Garage crew. For this year's collection, Collins has included one of every year, except for the1980 and 1981 model, as there wasn't a 5.0L option those years.

Jay Leno Chased By Original Bullitt Mustang While Driving New One

  Jay Leno Chased By Original Bullitt Mustang While Driving New One Watch and listen as he gets seat time in both cars. Barely 24 hours after Ford unveiled the new 2019 Mustang Bullitt – not to mention dropping a Bullitt bomb by bringing the original movie car out of hiding – Jay Leno is already taking hot laps in both. Actually, we’re pretty sure those laps occurred some time ago considering the amount of green grass and obvious lack of snow shown in the clip, which was clearly shot at Ford’s proving grounds in Dearborn, Michigan. Being a very rich and famous car guy does have its perks.

"I don't really have any expectations. The goal wasn't to set records, but to have the best collection I could find," said Collins. "Our parameters were they had to be documented and have less than 20,000 miles. Most of them even have the original tires."

Collins explained the collector Mustangs like Roush and Shelby models often have well documented paper trails, but not the Fox-bodies. "We focused on trying to find cars that were heavily documented," said Collins, "Logistically, to pull this off was very difficult, to get them all detailed, serviced, documented and shipped to the auction. Then to have an hour and a half of TV time to sell them consecutively was difficult as well." The cars will go back to back on Sunday on the Velocity channel at 1:30pm.

With "no reserve," on any Mustang, Collins does run the risk of losing money on this auction, "Just simply the math of getting them transported and entry fees is a huge amount of money," said Collins who expressed his nervousness of the sale.

The collection is currently on haulers from Passport Transportation, and set to cross the block on January 21st around 1:30pm. Collins plays favorites, saying he likes the 1990 Notchback the best, and "of course the 1983, because that's when I graduated high school." On the 1983, they're rare, as only 993 GT convertibles were built. Collins said he's been buying and selling Mustangs since high school, but with this sale, he's a bit nervous, "but hey, no risk no reward."
