Description:

279. Steve McQueen Gulf racing jacket worn during production and promotion of Le Mans. (Solar Productions/Cinema Center Films, 1971) Steve McQueen’s original Simpson Nomex fire resistant race jacket with blue lateral stripes down the arms and embroidered Gulf patch on the left chest. “Steve McQueen” is embroidered in cursive script on the right chest with the American flag sewn on the left shoulder. The back features a large 11 ½ in. diameter embroidered “Solar Plastics Engineering” logo patch on the back (McQueen’s company that produced Le Mans). Worn by McQueen in between scenes and on idle days during Le Mans’ filming in addition to a great amount of the European advertising since executives feared public confusion if McQueen were to wear the screen jacket with the character name “Michael Delaney” on his chest. Obtained from one of Steve McQueen’s mechanics that worked on his vehicles. In December 2011, Profiles in History sold McQueen’s original hero screen-used Gulf driving suit from Le Mans for an astounding $960,000.
$80,000 - $100,000
