1961 Austin, Mini Cooper S 

Specially customized by McQueen friend and fellow performance car aficionado Lee Brown, this Mini was driven by the noted actor in and around Hollywood. It was painted brown like a number of other McQueen cars and a large sunroof was installed to enhance its sporty flair. Preferring not to look at a radio antenna while driving, Steve McQueen had Brown move it into a recess in the right rear fender. Other special details include a single fog light mounted on the front bumper and a custom interior by upholsterer Tony Nancy. Discovered in used, but original condition, the Mini survives with all of its modifications intact and is now awaiting restoration.
