The Late Steve McQueen’s Custom Chevy 3800 Camper Is Up For Sale

May 5, 2020

Despite passing away 40-years ago, Steve McQueen is still widely remembered today as being one of the all-time most influential figures in the automotive and motorcycling worlds. The so-called “King of Cool” famously spent a considerable amount of his fortune on a slew of vehicles, all of which are now extremely valuable and sought-after. And such is the case with one of the final vehicles McQueen ever owned/drove: a 1952 Chevrolet 3800 Camper which has just popped up for sale.

McQueen originally stumbled across the ’52 Chevy while driving through Southern California, randomly purchasing the 235ci from a migrant farmworker before having it equipped with a custom, galvanized metal and aluminum camper built by Harold Van Hoosen. Utilized by the actor on countless camping trips, McQueen also reportedly drove this exact vehicle – with friend and fellow icon, Billy Graham sitting shotgun — from his LA area home to the Ventura airport on November 3, 1980, on his way to his final cancer surgery in Mexico before his death on November 7 — making it one of, if not the final vehicle ever driven by the Hollywood legend. This ex-McQueen 1952 Chevrolet 3800 Camper is currently for sale at Legendary Motorcars in Ontario, Canada, with pricing available upon request.
