Found: McQueen’s Queen Manx buggy from “The Thomas Crown Affair”


Thomas Crown, the polo-playing, playboy thief played by Steve McQueen in the 1968 film The Thomas Crown Affair, had an affinity for dune buggies—and cool ones at that. The custom Queen Manx speedster from the film even managed to make it into the quick-cut trailer, bounding over sand dunes at the beach and kicking up some saltwater in the surf with McQueen behind the wheel and Faye Dunaway in the passenger seat. Fifty years after the film’s release, the whereabouts of the long-hidden buggy have been revealed, and a full restoration is nearly complete.
