I've never got the appeal of celebrity owned cars, but obviously people value them (for real Celebrities) as prices are often hugely inflated.

In fact the opposite, I have a belief that overall celebrities don't look after their stuff very well....

It's been for sale on and off for ever. And it's a 20 foot car at best. The late Art Love found it in a LA car yard in the '80's looking very sad. He wasn't aware of its history at the time.
If you want cool and celebrity in a 6.3 you can't go past David Crosby's old car.
It has a hidden compartment in the console cover under the dash where he would stash his hand gun! There is a knob on the dash to match the hazard flasher switch with a bowden cable to release the catch.
Mike Morris, the M-100 group VP owns it now

Yes Tim the Bullitt Mustang sold for 3.4 million US plus commission on top and basically needing a complete restoration but that will never happen https://www-caranddriver-com.cdn.amp...ion-auction%2F

The dark colour certainly enhances the appearance of the chromed/shiny alloy embellishments. Well, it's pricey, and maybe someone will pay that kind of money. To me - no. 6.3s are very, very special and need very, very deep pockets plus knuckles out of steel, but there you go- who knows. It certainly is a stunning looker, although one would think that they could have replaced the dash top. Just my two bobs' worth. Regards Styria
