Steve McQueen’s Cooper T-56 Solution Junior Race Automobile.
Cars And Trucks and Hollywood have gone hand-in-hand because the start of the film market, but nobody represented that much better than Steve McQueen. McQueen was a fan of anything with wheels and a skilled motorist in his own right, as evidenced this 1961 Cooper T-56 owned by the star. Created and built for the FIA’s Solution Junior series, the automobile was campaigned in-period by the Tyrell group, who would go on to win three F1 World Championships with Sir Jackie Stewart behind the wheel. This T-56 had eight first-place finishes with Tyrell, while McQueen would race it in California– before being required by Hollywood to choose in between acting and driving. The cars and truck has actually been restored to its original specification when raced by Tyrell and McQueen from the ground up and is eligible for historical events all over the world.
