The good news is that the auction, at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, will benefit Boys Republic, which is a nonprofit school and treatment community for troubled kids. There’s a McQueen connection here, too: he graduated from the school back in 1946. And all of the proceeds will go to the school. That’s kind of a feel-good way to pay what’s likely to be a real premium for the first dark green coupe off the line.
Remember, while there’s a lot we do know about the ’19 Bullitt, there’s still a lot of open questions: how much it’ll cost for the public, for example. That’s neither here nor there if you’re interested in this one. Head to Barrett-Jackson for more info. The hammer drops at approximately 7:30 PM on January 19th.
