 Bob,I wrote story about this for one of the Healey club magazines years ago.  I owned that Healey for years.  I bought it from a gentleman in San Jose who had bought it from the owner during the filming.  He gave me the plates with the car that can be seen in one of the shots when Steve McQueen parks his Mustang in front of it.  The story he (guy I bought it from) told me was that the Healey owner lived in one of the apartments, and while they moved other cars out for shooting, they let him leave his Healey there for the filming (pic attached).  The car can also be seen in another shot in the movie parked in the same place.  I restored the car into a Works Rally Tribute car (pic attached)... I didn't/don't think the film clips added any real value to the car so I didn't worry about it's 5 seconds of fame.  As a WRT car it was on 3 magazine covers.  The car now lives in Australia.  
Cheers,Steve Thomton

 There were several shots of a parked, white Healey in the movie 
'Bullitt.'  Allegedly, the car belonged to one of the movie crew and the 
director liked it.
