    You may be thinking of another car. That car was in pretty good shape., certainly not chopped, raced or wrecked. There were more suitable racers in the McQueen garage. Steve had issues with oil consumption and a smokey motor which was never resolved on that car- a gift from his first wife. He had the jacking points on the rockers slightly modified, but that apart it survived unmolested in its original state until a few years back. Then some jerk had it over restored to 'Pebble Beach' standards. Took away the original paint, and the original leather. Took away all the patina and every trace of McQueen. Such a shame as the car was still to many eyes perfect.

It replaced his NART that was wrecked. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 by Scaglietti | Monterey 2014 | RM AUCTIONS QUOTE=Dr S;11627935] You may be thinking of another car.

    The prize of the collection, though, a Ferrari 250GT SWB California Spider, was left in a garage and is in relatively good condition despite spending decades buried under piles of magazines.
