Posted by


The Clash’s Joe Strummer owned this 1963 Chalfont Blue Ford Thunderbird, which is now up for auction on eBay.  Bidding ends on Thursday, August 21st, which would have been Strummer’s 62nd birthday.


Strummer bought the Bullet-Bird in 1987 for $4,200, just after he left the band he founded and moved to California. It was his daily transport then, when he would drive from his home in LA to  Baby O studios on Sunset Boulevard during the recording of his first album of solo material.
