Both images are from 1963.
The breech looks to have the Beretta trunnions. I couldn't further enhance the script on the action. Double triggers.

Before the end Steve discovered not only what he looked for, but what he needed--the grace of God and that made all the difference to him.

Probably just pulled to the side of the road where there was a good view and posed for a few shots.

BTW and FWIW, his Indian Scout still runs like top.

It is good to hear that McQueen Indian Scout motorcycle is still with us.

However, the following from Jay Leno shows one of the most magnificent autos in the world of its time that McQueen owned and will be remembered long after most of us are dead and gone.



Ted; yes not only is the recoil terrible in appearance it was installed by a rank amateur. What garbage.

Kindest Regards;

I’m doing this from memory this morning Gil but I think the XKSS was an ill fated attempt to commercialize the D-Type. The D-Type came first.

One of the problems that beset the XKSS program, besides the usual Jag stuff, was that after 14? Cars were built, the wooden forms they used to beat the body panels into shape burned in a fire. That was enough for Jag to say “enough!”

Canvasback;

You have good memory. When you view this video below about the newly (5 years or so ago) built XKSS' it will bring back more of your memories. The new ones were priced at almost US$ 2million.

His usual watch in the early days was a Rolex 5513 Sub Mariner totally bomb proof keeps time lasts for ever, no day date mechanism known as a watch stopper a model now wanted by collectors all over the world.


I bought a Rolex Oyster Submariner in Geneva in 1973, all stainless, no day/date. Far from bomb proof. Maintenance was a headache, accuracy was questionable, but it looked good. Let my son wear it in his wedding, and that was the last time I saw it. Now he collects Rolexes. I should have known better. My current daily watch is an $18 black plastic Casio, more accurate than the Rolex, and no maintenance. When the battery dies, just buy a new watch.

He appeared in the Sand Pebbles 2 years before Bullit, and as I remember they used several Model 97's in that movie.

McQueen may have been just an actor, but he could drive a car (did all his own work in Bullit and one of the two Fords was his own full race Trans Am car, the other a hopped up 3900. His motorcycle skills were legendery. He was deeply admired by the best trials rider in the world for his skill and determination and went full blown all out in SoCal and Mexican races almost every weekend. I always though he ended up what James Dean wanted to be.
