What could be better than winning a new car? Try winning an absolute classic like a fully restored and revitalized 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastback like the very one driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 film Bullitt. If that sounds super appealing, then you’ll want to head on over to Omaze and take your stab at winning a 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt restored by Richard Rawlings’ Gas Monkey Garage.

By donating to the Gas Monkey Foundation, you’ll be entered to win a replica of the car that Steve McQueen drove in one of cinema’s most legendary car chases. Though the ’68 Mustang GT features original elements like a 390-cubic-centimeter big block engine and a four-cylinder manual transmission — not to mention quintessential Bullitt elements like the iconic Dark Highland Green paint scheme and cue ball shifter — it leverages modern upgrades like 428 aluminum heads, a custom exhaust, and a pair of Holley carburetors to crank the output up to 600 horsepower. That makes this vintage pony considerably more powerful than even the 480-horsepower 2020 Mustang Bullitt.

Gas Monkey Foundation will use the money raised by Omaze during the sweepstakes to give back to communities in Texas. Over its lifetime, the foundation has donated $300,000 to causes including fighting human trafficking, supporting the environment, and making life better for veterans and the elderly.

Your donation of $10 will earn you 100 entries toward the grand prize. Additional entry levels include 250 entries for $25; 1,000 entries for $50; 2,000 entries for $100; 2,500 entries for $250; 5,000 entries for $500; 10,000 entries for $1,000; 25,000 entries for $2,500; and 50,000 entries for $5,000. If you’re the lucky winner, taxes and delivery are covered.

If you don’t have the money to spare, you can also earn one free entry by filling out a form. The deadline to enter is Feb. 3, 2020; you can find more information at Omaze.
