BULLITTCAST Kevin Marti of Marti Auto Works identifies the original Bullitt

If you are a fan of Mustangs, there is a good chance you have heard of Kevin Marti. His company Marti Auto Works offers a number of services geared toward documenting and preserving Mustangs. Most prominent of those offerings is the noted Marti Report which deciphers the full production details of a particular Mustang.

Obviously he has a lot of expertise in identifying Mustangs, and that knowledge proved key in verifying the legitimacy of the original Bullitt movie Mustang that Sean Kiernan famously sold for a record-setting $3.74 million at the Mecum Kissimmee auction earlier this year. 

The night before the historic sale at the Mecum Auction in Kissimmee, Florida, back in February, Kevin Marti (right) presented Sean Kiernan with a special Marti Report detailing all the specs of the original Bullitt movie Mustang.

On a recent episode of Mecum’s On the Move podcast, he looked back on verifying the Bullitt. “He explains the smoking gun, which, as it turns out, was the galvanic reaction of the vehicle’s aluminum VIN tag,” says the episode description. “Kevin also gives his thoughts on the car’s momentous presentation and record-breaking sale at the 2020 Kissimmee Mecum Auction.”

Before it could be sold for a record $3.4 million (plus a buyer’s premium fee pushing it to $3.74 million), it had to be verified as the real thing, and that fell to the expertise of Kevin Marti. He details that process on a recent episode of Mecum’s On the Move podcast.
