I am the 3rd Owner of this rust-free long-time California car. I purchased the coupe directly from my colleague, the 2nd Owner, R. R. (Bob) Young, in 1975. He was a screenwriter and close friend of Steve McQueen's since they worked together on “Wanted Dead or Alive.” Steve picked out this coupe for Bob in 1967 and taught him how to drive it. This coupe is started regularly but used infrequently and has been in and out of storage for several years since I moved out of state. We’re looking for a loving owner who will continue the care this clean and straight classic deserves – as this 356 C Coupe is dying to be driven. They don't make them like this anymore.
