Steve McQueen’s 1952 Chevy 3800 one ton pickup with camper shell is currently being auctioned. The truck looks to be in great shape and has not been restored. The odometer reads 38,920 which could very well be actual miles. The ’52 Chevy comes with the original straight six engine and 4 spd manual transmission. The camper is a custom made unit called the “Dust-Tite” out of Yreka, California.
The venerable Chevy from McQueen’s classic car collection was the last vehicle of his that McQueen rode in, as it transported him to the airport on his way to Juarez, Mexico for his final cancer surgery.
Steve McQueen died four days later on November 7, 1980. The ’52 Chevy 3800 was purchased from his estate in 1984.
As of this posting, bidding was just shy of $98,000 with reserve not met.
It’s a beautiful old truck.
