really cool right it's a man crush dude I'm a used car dealer and this is what I do is try to turn a profit it's probably worth somewhere between 80 and 100 000. we can come in somewhere around 40 Grand that'd be great do you mind if I have someone come down and take a look at it just make sure there's no major hidden problems everything's correct sure I understand all right I'll be right back give him a call the car is beautiful and the queen drove it in his last movie what's not to love but the business side of me says calm down and get it checked out wow I'm really glad you guys called me out for this one man yeah this is beautiful you know when 51 that was when Chevrolet started that campaign to see the USA in your Chevrolet they only did about uh 20 000 of these in a convertible 51 Chevy was a great car there were very much an everyday man's car this was an affordable car when they were brand new they were two thousand and thirty dollars in the convertible form can I see in the trunk sure yes some certificates in here too that's cool man yeah certificates are what you need to see should we take it for a spin is that all right whatever you want to do where you going what do you got here for check it out make sure every Squad well I expect me to check the car out if you're not going to be driving this is Steve McQueen's 51 Chevy I gotta drive it fine thanks brother I can't believe I'm in the back seat of this thing how's it back there Rick comfortable I should be driving this car right now it's really solid man it's not a rattle or a shake or nothing in this car this is a nice car it really is a nice car to think that Steve McQueen sat in this seat held the steering wheel ran through these gears Rick you should feel this if you'd really like it yeah whatever [Laughter] this car was in such nice shape my job was easy today I couldn't say that the car is a 10 but it's a rock solid eight for sure you know I've seen 51 Chevy convertibles going for all kinds of prices but I think I would solidly put it in the low 30s as far as the car is concerned now you've got the McQueen Factor okay that falls right into your court okay well thanks Danny absolutely any collector would love to have a 51 Chevy convertible and then uh what's it worth because it was Steve McQueen's kind of take it from there all right so how much do you want for it 40 Grand it's in the neighborhood of 30 just the way it is I think Steve McQueen's got to be worth a little bit more I'll give you 35 cash um I put it down on the money where I kind of needed it to be can you come up a couple Grand to 137 37 I think it's a fair price I say go for it 37 000. all right can I drive you down the pawn shop we'll take care of it let's go all right you're driving the jeep back give me your keys I can't believe I actually own a car that was driven by Steve McQueen in a movie and now I finally get to drive it I am in heaven now I really feel like Steve McQueen has anyone seen my 51 Chevy someone move it I got rid of it you sold it you do remember the auction don't you the car hauler came by as taking it to Florida and he's probably in Arizona by now there's no way I'm missing this auction Cory's going with you why is he going with me pops just calm down we're gonna go out to Florida we're going to take it easy we're gonna have a good time and we're gonna make some money besides old people really love Florida me and Corey are here in Fort Lauderdale at Auctions America and I'm selling my 51 Chevy that used to be owned by Steve McQueen I just hope I make a profit here we go really nervous [Music] in 1951 Chevrolet Deluxe this is the automobile that Hollywood Legends Steve McQueen drovement of his illustrious career to a hunter made in 1980 twice thousand [Music] [Music] [Music] it sold for 80 000 I think that's a fair price we made forty three thousand dollars earlier I got a call from a guy selling a 1940s vintage Indian Motorcycle Classic Indians can be really valuable so me and Chum are on our way to go check it out okay guys the reason I called you is I got a 1940 four-cylinder Indian motorcycle it's definitely cool it was owned by Steve McQueen it's a cool bike but since Steve McQueen owned it it's not that much more right now got my 1940 Steve McQueen Indian I'm really looking to sell this motorcycle today because me and my sisters could use the money I'm willing to let this bike go for 130 000 and I'd be out of my mind to Let It Go for any less than that this is Steve McQueen's bike right here did Steve McQueen drive it he has ridden this bike oh man this is sick I absolutely love Steve McQueen in my office there's two pictures of people one of them is Jimi Hendrix one of them Steve McQueen oh I'm sort of big on the guy so how did you uh get this bike me and my dad purchased this bike at the Steve McQueen estate auction and I've got all the paperwork from the auction itself Steve McQueen was the ultimate man's man as an actor he always played a badass because in real life he was a badass you know the Great Escape the German soldier that was chasing him on the motorcycle right that was Steve McQueen because uh the original Stunt Driver couldn't keep up with Steve McQueen they dressed uh Steve McQueen up like the German so they just filmed it twice he just loved to ride he actually raced motorcycles competitively so a bike that McQueen owned would be Priceless to collectors does it still run when was the last time you started it um I haven't started in a while for probably six seven years all right it was shining when you bought it correctly it's real shiny now it's just got a couple little chips in it I noticed on the gas tank there's a little bit more than a ship my dad went out on a ride on this thing and it happened to catch fire not only did the guy let the bike sit around for years so you can't even start it he lit it on fire and didn't fix it I should walk away on principle but it's still Steve McQueen's bike and the cool factor is off the chart that is all the damage there is okay just that one little burn spot there that and it looks like some of the wiring has been replaced with modern wiring so how much do you want for it um I'm firm at 130 000 right now you're getting a deal with that price uh I'm thinking more like 70 000 it's going to cost me like 15 grand to get it fixed up and I'm assuming I'm gonna get right around 100 at an auction you're going to get a lot more than 100 we're talking about Steve McQueen I know we're talking about Steve McQueen [Music] I'm willing to go 70 000 cash right now I mean I couldn't do 70 000 I mean my bottom bottom dollar would be right at 120.
I'd go 80 grand but I wouldn't go no more you're realizing I'm going to be 100 Grand into it the auction charges it sits around for a year it's the cost of money uh 80 000 won't won't make it with me I couldn't do that deal I mean I'll go 85. I can't let it go for that it means too much to me thanks a lot man I appreciate it man okay come on John I am so bummed we could not make a deal but 85 Grand was really the most I could risk oh this is cool Le Grand fuga you know what that is right no The Great Escape now these are a couple uh posters this one's from Italy it's a two sheet the other one's from France it's Steve McQueen in both this was a mega movie I mean this said Steve McQueen James Garner Richard Attenborough everybody in it I like how they're running from their lives and they're still posing for the camera I bought the posters from a dealer in Europe and they're large he's like inside of a building I'm looking to get 500 for the pair and the least I'd be willing to take is 300 for the pair these are incredible The Great Escape this was a mega Blockbuster movie all around the world and one of the reasons why was because it dealt with World War II and especially it was big in Europe because they were all involved in it it was actually based on a true story there was a prison camp the Nazis had for the most Troublesome prisoners they were actually able to Tunnel out and just a great scene at the end with Steve McQueen this is the one where Steve McQueen was being chased on a motorcycle and he actually had to dress up like a Nazi and Chase himself because the other guy couldn't ride as good as Stephen Queen right that was right yeah okay I don't know how many hundreds of times you've told me that story my dad's obsession with Steve McQueen has gone way past fandom if someone walked in with the tissue Steve McQueen sneezed in my dad would frame it hang it on his wall and pay way too much money for it these are awesome so big question what do you want for these 500 for the pair okay take 350. you'd pay for these yeah they'll sell I mean it's french well some people think that's trendy some people just love Steve McQueen enough to buy anything with his name on it I'm offering 350. how about 400 um can you do 375 yes I'll do that yeah okay all right write them up feel pretty good that was higher than I expected him to offer a does seem like a sucker for Steve McQueen I think I will bring some more McQueen clusters in earlier I got a call from a guy selling a classic Mustang so Corey and I are on our way to go check it out so this is it huh this is it 68 Mustang Fastback GT is this is what we're here for yes we're definitely here for this this is the coolest car ever made possibly this is a car that Steve McQueen used to drive I called the guys down from the pawn shop today to check out my 1968 Mustang GT I can't afford to restore the car so I need to sell it I would like to have twenty thousand I might have to come down even as much as 12 000.
it's not the actual car Steve McQueen drunk one exactly identical to what he had in Bullitt he had a 68 Mustang GT Fastback right this is the quintessential muscle car it's 1968 the movie Bullet comes out it was the greatest car chase scene in the history of all movies they have no special effects or anything like that this is it Steve McQueen was one of the biggest movie stars of the 60s and the 70s I'm a huge fan and it's not just me there's a ton of Die Hard McQueen fans out there that I could sell this to I want it you want to sell this right I want to sell it how much do you want for it I got to get 20 grand out of it when this car is like new again it will be worth around a hundred thousand dollars let me have a friend come down and take a look sure gentlemen goodness gracious Steve McQueen machine I own counts Customs right here in Las Vegas we specialize in building anything cool with an engine let me ask you how long have you had it for about three years nice I mean I just love this car I mean this is the quintessential muscle car please talk about buying it rick besides Corey what are your concerns I just want to make sure it's a GT and I need to know if I can get it back to beautiful condition without putting me in bankruptcy court okay take a peek man there's no rust rot in it it's just surface rust this ain't rust it looked like somebody used some sort of a chemical stripping agent on it it makes it look like that sexy the way all the door gaps line up the way the doors open and close I mean it's solid now let's take a look at the uh the sole of this beautiful baby right here it is the factory Engine 5 liter 302 engine that's correct that's exactly what's supposed to be in here so is it a GT looks like a GT to me brother and it looks like a nice one believe it or not it's this Grille with the fog lights built into the grill things like the gas cap that's all Factory GT items so what do you think it's worth I would comfortably put this car anywhere between 12 and 15 000 as it sits right now okay all right man if I buy it I'll give you a call I'll be waiting for that call Corey most people would look at this and think it's a pile of garbage it'll be a bit of a challenge to make it perfect but it's a gem I'll give you 10 grand for it oh I I gotta have more than that I'll come down a little bit but I can't come down that much that's half of what I was asking like I just said it was worth 12 dude I need to get 15. I go 11. I mean basically it's just going to sit around here and rot it can't get worse here I'll keep it inside out of the weather can you come up any how about 12. about 12-5 that's the least I can take 12-5 all right it's a deal okay I hope that they'll be able to take it and do the work to it that I haven't been able to do to it because the car well deserves it all right so where are we at it's top secret I just hope you're not bringing me out here to bury me or bury the car this is Vegas you know so you really did bring us out here to kill us we've been working around the clock to get this bullet Mustang ready for Rick Harrison and after everything we've been through with her she's finally ready for the road so I've got Kevin bringing Rick and Corey out to the desert so they can see what this baby can do well there's something coming definitely doesn't look like the piece of crap we bought oh wow that's not the same car is it oh yeah what's up Jess oh my God man that thing is amazing [Music] beautiful that came out gorgeous oh this is cool man I poured my heart and soul into it just like I was building it for myself this is just absolutely amazing glad you dig it brother I'm looking at this car and everything about it's amazing the paint job the Chrome the Wheels I mean this car used to look like a piece of now it's one of the prettiest cars I've ever seen in my life sexy that's amazing what'd you do the motor everything well that's definitely not stock I mean we took this car down to the last nut bolt it's a very very happy motor dude that's amazing so I'm assuming it costs more than 15 grand to fix well you know let's talk about that later let's go for a drive first man before I tell Rick how much we ended up spending on the bullet I want to get him out on the road so he can see just how bad this car is hopefully he won't be too mad when he hears we went over budget [Music] all right [Music] this thing is amazing [Music] it's like literally the Fountain of Youth oh look at me in the mirror I'm 22 years younger Danny really did this car perfect and the whole fact that it looks exactly like the car in the movie is a big deal I'm a big Steve McQueen fan I mean he was the king of cool this thing's amazing dude I'm gonna own this car for a long time [Laughter] nice look I grew hair Danny told me he'd get this thing done for fifteen thousand dollars I think it's gonna go way over that okay so I'm imagining it cost more than the 15 to 20. it did I definitely blew past our
budget I know we were trying to keep it as close as we could to 15. uh I've got you know 22 in it I mean honestly if you would have told me 35 I would have thought that was a deal but uh hey I don't got to pay that thanks man as long as you're that happy I'm that happy I bought the car for 12-5 Danny only charged me 22 to fix it which means I'm in the entire thing 34-5 and literally the car's worth 50 or 60. or the way I'm looking at it I think the thing's priceless what do we have here I got a movie poster signed by Jacqueline Bessette Robert Vaughn Robert Duvall and this cat here Steve McQueen that's really really cool bullet was a hell of a movie I came down to the pawn shop today to see about selling my Bullet poster paid 3 900 and I definitely would like to make a little profit so where'd you get it I was at a fundraiser for kids and it was a silent auction item they didn't have like one of the all-time number one car chases in a movie oh yeah dude it's been 25 years since I've seen the movie but I do remember the car chase we all wanted to drive that car through the streets of San Francisco I mean catch a little air Steve McQueen really Was a Race Car Driver I mean in Bullitt he did a lot of the driving himself not too many freaky cops like bullet around you look at the Italian shoes and the turtleneck and you have to wonder but when some rare Chicago Blood starts spilling in San Francisco they give bullet the mop yeah those lines sound cheesy today but in uh 1968 all that mattered was Steve McQueen was in the movie because he really was the hottest ticket in Hollywood at the time Steve McQueen was one of the biggest movie stars of the 1960s and 1970s he had a reputation of being hard to work with on set but he was so popular with audiences the directors just had to put up with him I mean his nickname was the king of cool how badass is that so who signed it again we've got Jacqueline Bessette she was a hottie of her time one of my favorites right here Robert Duvall I think of Robert Duvall right now and he's a cool character right now Robert Vaughn another big actor in Hollywood and of course Steve McQueen here I know it's a rare poster and Steve McQueen is a real hot item at the moment I'm a huge fan of Steve McQueen of course I'm interested in this poster and it's not just me there's a ton of Die Hard McQueen fans out there that I could sell this to his stuff has become super collectible so what do you want to do with it uh I want to sell it how much you looking to get out of it I've heard numbers that range from four grand to 35 Grand so okay I really like Steve McQueen I mean uh I just offered ninety five thousand dollars for one of his bikes wow I recently looked at a 1940 Indian motorcycle that belonged to Steve McQueen and we couldn't make a deal I mean I've been kicking myself ever since the guy is my favorite actor of all time do you mind if I have someone come in and take a look at the signatures just to make sure they're legit no I think that'd be great let me go get my buddy a call get him down here if all the signatures are legit we can do something okay all right as much as I want to make an offer and snatch this thing up right now I have to get these signatures checked out if they're legit there's no way I'm gonna let that guy walk out the door Fords of course they don't want to buy a forgery so they give me a call all right I got something really cool here a bullet movie poster signed by Steve McQueen and the entire cast I don't think I've ever seen a poster before I love the movie that was fantastic we're basically dealing with most of the cast which I like because you get more evidence to tell if it's going to be authentic or not or else make it more valuable than just Steve McQueen's signature okay well Stephen Queen's signature is pretty rare I mean he died at only 50 years old didn't like to sign a lot of autographs his memorabilia is very valuable what other problems do you think might be with it I mean I just need to know if that's Steve McQueen right there because I know he didn't sign a lot of stuff right I'm going to concentrate on the Steve McQueen and the Robert Duvall they're the ones gonna be the most valuable we should take a close look on the Robert Duvall this signature it can be all over the place so it's really hard to authenticate but he does have the double L's at the end the shape the D is pretty much Dead on all right well let's take a look at the big one here Steve McQueen he does write an S it's almost like a figure eight the shape that capital t is huge and that's the way he normally writes it but I see that the t-bar is missing most ones I've seen before finish up with the T but he doesn't do it that way every time shape the ends off but he does write a six design for the the queue I would say this poster is worth probably a thousand dollars without the signatures but with the signatures [Music] is towards zero they're not good oh you gotta be kidding oh man I'm sorry but Steve McQueen's signature I've studied it a lot and it's got way too many hairs for it to be authentic ah sorry sir I wish I could say thanks but yeah how good are they no oh my God that's such a drag I always thought it was a good signature so it's a disappointment you got two strikes on Steve McQueen so far you know second time in a few months I couldn't get a Steve McQueen item um all right man I'm sorry I mean yeah I'm not as sorry as I am sorry it happened I usually don't let my emotions get involved in my business but I really wanted this thing to be real I'm just glad I didn't shell out a bunch of money for a fake and one of these days I'm actually gonna buy a genuine McQueen piece at least I hope I will so you guys look really comfortable this sets a whole new precedent around here Antoine is working harder than you guys you know what and I'm not even gonna get mad at you because you guys are going to leave on a mission I'm all about missions what's up you guys are driving up to Carson City and there's a guy up there with a 1970 650 tiger Triumph okay oh three what's 10 grand for it I'm sure you could pick it up right around eight grand as long as it runs good I want it so you know what you guys are not gonna run good how do you know it's not going to run good because it's a Triumph don't transfer them better than Harley's no yes the only reason he likes triumphs is because I like Harleys no I liked triumphs before you were born I just they're backwards dude no they're just different than American bikes because the old triumphs are backwards yeah they're backwards so what's the problem it's weird well you just have to get used to doing it they're lame I'm giving you guys a break when I shouldn't be so go to Carson City bring Antoine with you if it runs good just buy it for me okay can I ride my Harley I don't care watch you ride just go up there and get me the motorcycle ready for a road trip because I guess so you want to ride bikes I'm down okay cool [Music] let's get out of here all right hey how's it going Corey the bikes are back in the warehouse let's check them out we do motorcycle frames we do gas tanks we do oil tanks we do handlebars we got 5 000 different parts we make here in the U.S so pretty much yeah if you're if
you're building a custom bike you're gonna at least have a few parts from these guys on it well the bikes are back here let me show you we've got a couple of nice ones I think you're going to really get excited this is a 1970 Triumph oh that's nice man I actually bought this bike in 1999 and sent it to my nephew and He restored this bike in three years from a pallet of parts to exactly as you see it now it's actually funny man I've never liked tramps but this is uh kind of tickling me a little bit I have a 1970 Triumph trophy 650 for sale it's fully restored it's really a nice piece you don't find them this way very often I'd like to get ten thousand dollars for that you like this thing don't tell anybody but yeah it's actually really clear though your nephew did a really good job I mean it's just like it left the factory floor and it runs like a sewing machine it really it's it's kind of a really fun bike to drive Trump you got to realize in the 60s and 70s these things hands down were just a better machine than a Harley was they were a lot faster they were heads and tails above hardly in technology but they've kind of gone in and out of business a bunch of times right absolutely I believe it was in the 70s uh didn't they run out of stock I think you're right which is basically what made a lot of customers switch to Hondas Honda was a big big player in the mid to late 70s 10 years ago you couldn't find a on the streets they're real collectible absolutely we have another one over here oh that truck is sweet it's as fast as it looks too this is what we call our Paco racetrack we built it in 2013 for the show circuit to attract attention and bring people into our booth and so forth so this one looks like it's meant to go really fast it's a five speed with a chain drive because it's 125 inches about 140 horsepower so this is a pretty special one-of-a-kind bike what do you want for the trike I think it's worth every penny of forty thousand you couldn't build it for that you know it's a one of a kind piece and you're not going to find another one anywhere in the world like it okay so what are you looking for on the Triumph I'd like to get ten thousand dollars for it I think it's reasonable well I guess we got to ride them I'll do the triumph I'm kind of scared of this thing honestly it looks intimidating yeah you really got to pay attention when you drive this one it's really fast do you guys bring your helmets yes you did all right you want to go grab them grab mine too please man you guys are amazing yeah these bikes both run great and I know my dad really wants to Triumph but I'm not sure they meet my motorcycle standards so it all depends if Steve wants to lay off the gas and lower the gap on this price Matthew in the dust Big Hoss this thing looks intimidating and let me tell you what it is but you feel like a badass driving this thing definitely got a style to it what did you think about the Triumph you know I've never read the British bike before it feels like I'm driving on the wrong side of the street well I'm telling you right now we got to get this thing right here we're gonna be dumb if we don't pull back up to the shop with this bad boy this hike we'd like to get 40 000. I'm really liking it but that being said I think we are going to end up passing on the trike seems like you guys just got a little bit too much money in it and it's just going to be a hard sell at the shop but what can we really do on the triumph we'd like to get ten thousand dollars just take six no no I think it's a legit ten eleven thousand dollar bike I'll do a and go to seven you gotta remember I buy these to make money on them too heating up into eight and nine grand you know there's not much there for me to make 75 7. that's the best I could do uh we'll have to pass got to pass okay 75 your dad's gonna be mad if you don't come back with that for over 500 even Antoine knows that that's right 72.
I think I'm gonna hold it 75. well maybe next time my man I'll be around thank you sir appreciate it hey thanks for the ride man uh no my pleasure back to the two when I was like all right Corey over 300 you guys are gonna be pissed what's up pop yo what's up you guys get my motorcycle no what happened Corey wouldn't buy it over 300 the guy was at 7 500 and Corey was stuck at 7 200. what did I tell you guys to do Rick I told him probably the bike your dad's gonna be pissed at you the bike was in perfect condition you tattletails man I honestly no dude the deal wasn't right I didn't tell you to buy it because it was worth it or not I told you to buy it for me there was no money to be made on the bike I did you a favor no son I wanted the bike for myself because what do I ride guys so I basically paid for you guys to have a vacation not you guys I argued to bring the bike home Rick I really did your son Corey decided not to buy the bike over 300 you know what this is all my fault I should have never sent you guys thanks a lot core Rick really you could send me on another trip I promise
