Bullitt Steve McQueen 2008 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt & 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 Greenlight Collectibles Series 5 1:64 Scale Diorama - Two 1968 390 CID V8 Ford Mustangs (325 bhp) were used for the chase scene in the original movie. The Mustangs engines, brakes and suspensions were heavily modified for the chase by veteran car racer Max Balchowsky. Ford Motor Company originally loaned two Ford Galaxie sedans that were intended to be used in the chase scenes, however the producers found the cars entirely too heavy to put through jumps over the hills in San Francisco without the suspension of the cars being severely damaged. The Galaxie sedans were replaced with two 1968 440 CID 375 bhp Dodge Chargers that were bought outright from Glendale Dodge in Glendale, California. The engines in both Chargers were left largely unmodified, but the suspensions were upgraded to cope with the demands of the stunt work.
