The car was in rough shape, with lots of dings and it looked like bondo in some spots. It apparently sat around in non-running condition for several years.

In the case of this car, the rough edges may actually help the value.

The rough edges at least contribute to the authenticity. It took quite a while to convince folks it was legit when it first surfaced but apparently the owners eventually succeeded. Though the front bumper looks to have been swapped out for a new one fairly recently.

Patina is often desirable.

However, this is just plain stupid (3.4 mil for that thing)

I think the story of the Bullit "stunt" car is more interesting. I know it was being restored as of a couple of years ago, don't know whatever became of it in the end though. It was found rotting away in a junkyard in Mexico, it was thought to have been crushed following filming as it was pretty mangled up by then.

And as proud of the cars and the mystique as Ford is about the Bullit cars, I think it is hilarious that the guys who drove the Mustang and the Charger for filming the movie have said a number of times that they had to back off on the gas in the Charger while filming or it would have seriously pulled away from the Mustang as if the 'Stang was nailed to the ground.

Ok you guys it gaveled at 3.74, how dare you diss the thing like that? I mean 3.4 is way to cheap right? People paying stupid money for crap like that while there are goats starving for new parts....
