The green Ford Mustang from the movie "Bullitt" is famous for racing through the streets of San Francisco, but for the next few days it will be in the middle of Washington, DC
To mark the entry of the iconic movie car into the National Historic Vehicle Register of Major Automobiles in the Library of Congress, the Mustang GT of 1968 will be on display in a transparent box in the National Mall until April 23.
The car fell out of publicity for decades before reappearing in January at the Detroit Auto Show to mark both its 50th anniversary of the Steve McQueen movie as well as the launch of a new Mustang GT Bullitt tribute model this year.
The car has been owned by the same family since 1974, but over the years has lapsed and been hidden. As his legend says, owner Sean Kiernan says they are really not sure how to handle it. But after his father died a few years ago, he set about getting the car back together and running again so he could share it with the fans.

After the visit to Washington, Kiernan and the car embark on a world tour of auto shows and events. Do not expect to see it in the auction block.
Although it's worth millions, Kiernan says he'll never sell it because it means too much to him, but probably he'll one day exhibit it in a museum
