Hit the road Steve!

   
This bottle green Chevy truck with a custom aluminum camper sitting in its long bed was once owned by Steve McQueen. Towards the end of his life he used it to go cross country and see the USA from the road. 

 
Purchased from a migrant farmer the 1952 V6 engined 3800 was purchased from a migrant farmer from the side of the road. 

   
Big mattress, plenty of storage and a tent-like inner ceiling it would be the perfect thing to scour the back roads and lost towns of the continent. The camper unit is called a dust-tite and was built by Harold van Hoosen. 

This was up for auction this year… Unsure if it sold but the anticipated price was $600-800k.
