"Bullitt" Chase in 2011: Music video for a Grammy winning artist

When was the last time the Black Charger was chased through the streets of San Francisco by the Green Bullitt Mustang? I mean, really chased, in real life, not on the movie screen or on a DVD. You would all have to say it was in 1968 when the cult classic movie "Bullitt" was being filmed. Not so! It happened on Tuesday, February 22, 2011, on a bright and sunny San Francisco day. I kid you, not. We were there!

The video posted here is the raw video taken with my my mini HD hand cam. Hopefully we will be getting the professional video soon! When I do keep your eyes open. I will be posting more footage here!


It all started a week before with a phone call to Ron Bramlett here at Mustangs Plus in Stockton, California. The call came from a production company in Malibu, California. The person on the other end of the phone said that they would like to use Mustangs Plus' Bullitt Tribute Mustang for re-creating the famed Bullitt chase scene from the movie. Our first thought was, "Yeah, right! What kind of deal are they trying to get us into?" But, as we talked, it became clear that this was the real deal. The production company had arranged with the city of San Francisco to shut the streets down and to be able to film at many of the original locations for a music video for a Grammy winning artist. Our interest was peaked, to say the least!
