Feeling like committing yourself to some expensive compulsive purchases involved with automotive and Hollywood history? Well, here’s your chance!
Up for auction at this year’s Pebble Beach Gooding & Co. show and auction is the world’s oldest Bentley and one of Steve McQueen’s motorcycle later this August.
Starting with the Bentley, the 1921 Chassis 3 was the first customer sold Bentley ever built. Since its birth, it has participated in many Bentley rallies and is still 100% drivable to this day with its original aluminum body and fully concealable convertible top.
As for the late Steve McQueen’s two-wheeler, it’s a 1931 Brough Superior SS80 that was shared with his friend, Von Dutch. Both made a gentlemen’s agreement that whoever passed first would hand the bike over to the other. The Brough is estimated to fetch around $100,000 to $200,000 without auction with a letter of authenticity from Steve McQueen’s son, Chad.
The show and auction will take place at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Center this August 20th and 21st and admission is $40.
