The jacket that McQueen wore during that iconic chase scene in the film is being auctioned off in California.

The auction company is called Profiles in History and some believe it could sell for as much as $800,000. The auction describes the jacket has a brown herringbone suede sleeves that Frank Bullitt wore in the film.

It's hard to imagine the jacket going for $800,000, but Steve McQueen is still a huge name.
