How much. I owned a  red 4sp ws6. I'd buy another one.

Shows a lack of creativity in the movie makers that couldn't make a movie/tell a story without blowing up a brand new car.

the one that came out of the corn field is not the same car as the one in the field ...the field car has considerable damage to the passenger side roof  and the one comes out does not have ant damage there

A true "field find"... it's ALL yours!!!

But where's the Monte Carlo that drove off the top floor of the parking deck in that same movie?  Gotta make us a package deal for sure!

At least they didn’t sacrifice a real Pontiac powered Trans Am, they blew up the Toronado version, public service actually

I've watched videos of the retrieval of vehicles from swamps--so much of the vehicle having rotted away that practically the entire vehicle would have to be hand-manufactured--then sold as "restored".  Is such a vehicle really a "restored" vehicle?  We must ask ourselves if the outcome represents anything of value.  This Pontiac certainly borders on such childish fantasies.  Steve McQueen merely sat in the car--he had no great interest in this particular VIN.   It isn't like he strongly desired this particular car or even had any love for it.  It was part of the "script".  But, as the saying goes--"A fool and his money are soon parted".  LOL  It will bring some high dollars!

So - with seven cars used and this one specially rigged to be destroyed in a scene while Steve McQueen chases it, I suspect Steve may never have sat in this car.

There's a lot more missing than the fenders and hood unless there are pieces in that box on the trailer.

I never buy celebrity cars of any stripe, because the attached theoretical cache simply adds nothing to the car. I know a lot of folks don't feel that way.  Thanks for the post.
