The first example of the new Bullitt Mustang will likely be sold at auction.

Ford's next-generation Mustang Bullitt could be just days away from its official unveiling, a listing from the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction has revealed.

We've been hearing rumors about a Bullitt Mustang revival for several months now, but it looks as though that long wait is about to come to an end. Lot #3006 for the upcoming Barrett-Jackson auction is described as a "special new Ford Mustang to be sold with 100% of the hammer price benefiting Boys Republic," indicating it could be the long-rumored Bullitt Mustang.

Boys Republic is a key clue as it's the same school in Chino Hills, California that Bullitt star Steve McQueen attended as a teen. McQueen later served as the school's honorary chairman. Perhaps even more telling, Barrett-Jackson has deleted all mention of Boys Republic since the listing was first noticed by the fan site Mustang6G.

Specs on the new Bullitt Mustang remain a mystery, but you can expect a Highland Green paint job, unique wheels and a V8 under the hood. The Barrett-Jackson auction is scheduled to take place on January19, but it's possible Ford could unveil the limited-edition Mustang at next week's Detroit auto show.
