Slew Of Steve McQueen Memorabilia Offered At Auction

With a name like the Peterson Automotive Museum Auction you’re guaranteed to be offered some pieces of automotive history and the December 8th auction is no exception. Amongst numerous cars and other memorabilia are five pieces closely tied to the late Steve McQueen.

Some pieces are rather straight forward like an assortment of photos he kept in his hanger at Santa Paula airport while others are a bit random like the mailbox to said hangar or a key to his room at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Additionally, you have one of the cooler lots reminiscent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Mcqueen’s hands and signature in concrete from 1977.

One of the most interesting historically only refers to McQueen, but is actually more about Von Dutch. Yes, the name made famous by the likes of Paris Hilton in the 2000s, but in reality was more a Jesse James type while he was alive. Kenny “Von Dutch” Howard was a famous California based pinstriper, artist, fabricator, knife maker and gunsmith which would have made him quite popular during McQueen’s time and the The Reivers Sign is proof of that. The sign was hand painted by Von Dutch to be placed alongside a car which he built and owned by McQueen.
