Steve McQueen was an avid car and motorcycle collector. But this 1952 Chevy pickup truck was the last vehicle Steve McQueen ever drove.
One of the most famous car-chase scenes in Hollywood history features Steve McQueen behind the wheel of a green 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 in the movie "Bullitt."
In real life, the actor was a serious car, truck, and motorcycle collector, possessing the pink slips to more than 60 rare vehicles.
“Steve’s collection of cars and motorcycles cluttered the private driveway that serviced a row of homes near the beach, but that didn’t stop him from buying whatever he wanted,” Minty McQueen said. “I remember one time we drove past a migrant farm worker who had this bitchin’ old truck and Steve turned the car around and wrote him a check on the spot."
In 1978, McQueen bought a 1952 Forest Green Chevrolet 3800 series one-ton long-bed pickup truck. In the bed was a custom built aluminum camper. That six-cylinder, four-speed stick shift pickup is for sale and will be sold by Mecum Auctions on July 26.
