He probably only drove the car briefly, or not at all, and immediately after delivery he left it to his friend and partner at Solar Productions (“Le Mans” cult classic, starring MqQueen), de, actor Stu Nisbet, who drove the Targa demonstrably drove from 1971 to 1995. So we have the entire, complete documentation about origin and maintenance/mileage. You should never forget about things like this – 53 years have now passed. Most of the contemporary witnesses have either unfortunately died or remember such details vaguely, but usually no longer at all.
The original US title with Steve McQueen as the holder was available until the 90s and was glued to the inside of the rear targa window at a presentation by the company Stimmed in order to prove and document the origin of the vehicle beyond the existing documents .
Unfortunately, a trophy hunter stole this supporting document for his private happiness. If necessary, Mr.stimming himself certifies under oath the existence of this US title. We failed in several attempts to obtain a duplicate copy from official authorities. This is understandable when you consider that there are over 50 years in between and that archives of this type usually do not exceed their limits.
Both in terms of its nature and its origin, this special Targa 2.2E is a real collector's item that should find a worthy place in a serious collection. The vehicle has been regularly serviced and driven over the last 30 years, but barely 5,000 km have been driven within these 3 decades. We ourselves have been looking after the vehicle for around 15 years and know it inside out.
If you are interested, we would ask you to arrange a personal visit for a viewing and a detailed discussion.
Thank you for your attention
