The late Joe Strummer of the Clash has had his 1963 Ford Thunderbird put up for auction on eBay. The ongoing auction, courtesy of the Beverly Hills Car Club, is over on August 21.
According to the BHCC, the car was originally "purchased by Strummer in 1987 for $4,200, the vehicle has remained in pristine condition, having spent several years in a climate controlled garage."
The BHCC also notes that Strummer "would take his partner Gaby and their two young daughters on family outings to the desert in the T-Bird. In May 1988 he and Gaby drove the 850 miles in the Ford Thunderbird to New Mexico for the Santa Fe film festival, where Mystery Train, Jim Jarmuschs masterly independent film in which Joe starred, was being screened."
The car is currently priced at $23,000 with 55 bids. The reserve has not been met.
