08.06.19. A Steve McQueen Owned 1940 Packard 120.

A very special caramel 1940 Packard 120 - acquired at auction in 1984 from the McQueen family by a Belgian collector, delivered with a certificate of authenticity signed by McQueen’s children Chad and Terry McQueen. Now quietly resides in Brisbane, Australia.

Was unreal seeing the amber headlight lamps, dashboard brightwork, handprinted detailing, the bowing swan and a steering wheel once handled by McQueen himself.
