McQueen drove the Ford Mustang in the classic film, in which he played no-nonsense police Lieutenant Frank Bullitt.

The car was made famous during a 10-minute car chase.

McQueen was filmed with the window down so viewers could see him in the car, although the actor actually shared the wheel with Hollywood stunt driver Bud Ekins, according to film site IMDB.
