Ever seen the movie Bullitt? If you haven't you should check it out or at least watch the chase scene online. The film is famous for its iconic car chase through the hills of San Francisco. This mod contains two configurations for the Barstow to resemble the two cars involved in the movie's chase sequence. One looks similar to the Ford Mustang that was driven by Steve McQueen while the other looks similar to the Dodge Charger that was driven by the famous stunt driver Bill Hickman.
Obviously the Barstow will never be an exact replica of either of these cars. These configurations were made to simply resemble the look and equipment of both cars as closely as possible with the in-game parts on hand.
So what does the mod do exactly?
Let's break it down to parts. The "Mustang" is equipped with the 353. The "Charger" has the 423. Both cars are 4 speed manuals with 4 barrel carbs and have upgraded heavy duty suspension setups as were the cars used in the movie so the suspensions wouldn't be quickly annihilated jumping over the San Francisco hills. There are also subtle exterior differences between the two cars besides the obvious difference in wheels and tires. The presets are quickly selectable in the vehicle selector via clearly marked thumbnails.
NO NEW 3D MODELS ARE INCLUDED WITH THIS MOD. NO NEW SKINS ARE INCLUDED WITH THIS MOD. NO CODING WAS DONE TO ALTER THE STATS OF IN-GAME PARTS. THE MOD IS ENTIRELY COMPRISED OF VANILLA IN-GAME ASSETS.
INSTALLATION: Drop the zip in your mods folder, usually located here- C:\Users\Owner\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods
These cars will then show up under the Barstow in the vehicle selector.
Hope you enjoy it!
I also made license plates to go with the cars! Check that out here: http://www.beamng.com/threads/bullitt-license-plates.22494/
