1966 Mustang Driven by Clint Eastwood

I’ve got time for one more featured car from Russo and Steele, before their 13th Annual Scottsdale Auction starts tomorrow. And this one’s definitely going to make someone’s day. Up for sale is a 1966 Ford Mustang convertible, VIN 6F08T216371, slated to cross the block this Saturday around 10:30 pm.

While the Mustang wasn’t owned by Eastwood, Russo and Steele say it’s one of two he drove in the 2012 movie “Trouble with the Curve.” They specifically refer to a scene where he comes out of a garage and dents the fender—the dent’s still visible on the car.

While the car seems to be in rough shape at first glance, apparently it was painted by the studio to look like it had rust and damage. Cool. The new owner could always have it painted back to its original red, but that would take away the Hollywood mystique.

Russo and Steele note that the Gran Torino from the same film sold for six figures, and Eastwood only sat in that car. This one he actually drove.
