Steve McQueen's Bullitt Blazer Heads to Auction

Jul 3 2013, 12:30pm CDT | by

McQueen's jacket could bring $800,000.

Hands down one of the most popular movies ever made for fans of chase movies is Steve McQueen's Bullitt. That would has one of the most iconic chase scenes ever put to film with the Queen behind the will of the Mustang chasing the bad guys the streets of San Francisco. 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. It wouldn't be the first time that someone has paid a huge fee for something owned by McQueen and considering this jacket comes from one of his most iconic films, it could very well make it worth nearly a million dollars.
