Bruce Springsteen

You Can Bid On Bruce Springsteen’s 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible

Bruce Springsteen and cars - it's as perfect as peanut butter and jelly.  Think about how many songs he's written that mention cars, or classic photos of him in, or leaning against, a car. Now, the ultimate Bruce Springsteen fan can bid on the 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle convertible that Bruce actually owned! Bruce bought the car, with a 396 big block V-8 and 4-speed manual transmission, in 1981, and kept it until 1987, when he gave it to his longtime recording engineer, Toby Scott, for Christmas.  In addition to getting the car if you happen to bid, there's even a letter of provenance written by Bruce himself! The car came out of the factory colored LeMans Blue, but Bruce changed it to Midnight Black while he owned it.  The car was refurbished just a few years ago, including the color returned to its original LeMans Blue.  One quirky feature of the refurbishment was the installation of what the auction notes says is a "period radio," which is likely an AM or AM/FM receiver, and it hasn't been hooked up yet!  For the final nice touch, it's got those light blue and gold New Jersey license plates. The car is being auctioned through Mecum Auctions, a Wisconsin-based auction house that specializes in automobiles of all types. The auction starts in May, and you can check out everything you need to know about this amazing piece of rock and roll history, including Bruce's letter of authenticity, and the complete description of that sweet vehicle here.
