If you're a Steve McQueen fan, you need to check out the many items for sale at Bonhams' annual Classic California auction taking place at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 14. There will be around 150 item previously owned by legendary Hollywood actor and his family that include movie posters, autographed photos, cars and motorcycles. The more notable items include:
- McQueen's 1949 Chevrolet 3100 pick-up that has never before offered for sale, and in its original unrestored condition as it was when last driven before his death in 1980.
- The 1940 Indian Chief motorcycle that was used by Steve as his personal "Hollywood bike" and was originally sold as part of the McQueen estate in Las Vegas in 1984.
- The #1 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt Special Edition dubbed "McQueen 1", built in commemoration of the great chase movie, Bullitt. It was presented by Ford to Steve's professional racecar driver son Chad and is in factory original, unmodified condition with only 2012 miles since new.
The Number 2 Ford Mustang Bullitt was intended for Steve McQueen's daughter Terry, but she passed away before receiving it and it passed to her daughter Molly. This sold at Bonham's Petersen auction last year for $70,200.
