"This was supposedly the last vehicle McQueen drove from his home in Santa Paula to the Ventura County Airport before his death in 1980. During that final ride, Reverend Billy Graham supposedly rode shotgun with him in the Chevrolet and discussed the afterlife as McQueen suffered from an eventually fatal bout with mesothelioma. Four days later, the "King of Cool" passed away from heart failure in a Juarez, Mexico clinic following surgery to remove metastatic tumors from his neck and abdomen."

Looks like its at $18K right now, and yes, it'll probably go much higher before its over. It would be "cool" to own it and actually use it for what it was built for. Nostalgia camping at its best. Oh well, one can dream.

"Cool" would be an understatement. Yep, use it. Alitta saying in the bike world, "Ride it, dont hide it". I think that would fit in this situation. drive

Yes, very cool. This truck was sold previously on EBay back in 2015 for $98,077. There were 42 bids.
Good luck. Dave

It's only $38K right now with 4 days to go, the bidding gets crazy in the last 2 hours or so on most of these auctions.

Up at $45,250 now. Interest is picking up. I'll bet it goes over $100k given it sold for nearly that 5 years ago.

I think higher than that. I saw a '52 3100 in good shape go from $19K to $38K in the last few hours of selling. My guess is around $150K.
