Clint Eastwood’s Car Collection Is Appropriately Cool

Known for his tough-as-nails persona on the screen in plenty of crime and western movies, Clint Eastwood is a household name. But what most people don’t realize about the man is that he’s a big gearhead, owning an impressive collection of mostly classic cars.

1977 Pontiac Trans Am

Just like his pal Burt Reynolds, Clint Eastwood owned perhaps the most iconic Trans Am ever made, complete with the black and gold color scheme and the screaming chicken on the hood. It’s one hell of an American muscle car.

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB

To seal the deal on Eastwood starring in the film The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, the actor who had turned down multiple offers for the film was tantalized with the promise of owning a beautiful Ferrari 275 GTB straight out of the factory – at least that’s the legend of how he obtained this beauty.

1992 GMC Typhoon

Shocked that Clint Eastwood drives a factory-modified fast American SUV from the 90s? Fans of this increasingly obscure vehicle will be thrilled and a lot of other people will scratch their heads over this choice.

1955 Cadillac Eldorado Series 62 Convertible

Purchased by Eastwood just two years after he married Maggie Johnson, this large luxury convertible has been one of the actor’s most beloved rides since day one. While some might believe the ’59 model year was the pinnacle of Cadillac design, Clint seems to be content with his ’55.

1972 Gran Torino Sport

That’s right, this is the car from the movie Gran Torino, which was purchased originally by producers from eBay of all places. Now it sits proudly in Eastwood’s garage.

1932 Ford Roadster

Growing up in California, Eastwood was in the epicenter of the hot rod movement. From a young age he wanted to own a Ford Roadster hot rod build, but didn’t have the finances for one until much later.

1976 Ferrari 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer

Bought by Eastwood in 1977, this car was originally sold in Italy and was imported legally to the US. The actor decided to have a custom roof installed on the sports car, then eventually parted ways with it in 1985.

1960 Jaguar XK150 Roadster

Considered to be one of the most iconic British sports cars ever made, the Jaguar XK150 only enjoyed a five-year production run with under 10,000 rolling off the line. In other words they’re rare and collectors as well as enthusiasts desire them greatly.

1955 Austin Healey 100M

You’re either cheering at this one or are a bit confused, but that’s the exact nature of these little British sports cars, especially today. A strong cult following absolutely adores the 100M and among them is Clint Eastwood and the late Steve McQueen.

1937 Lincoln K-Series Convertible

If you’ve ever seen Honkytonk Man, you might be thinking this car looks a bit familiar. It was in fact the ride Eastwood’s character used to traverse the Lower 48. That isn’t to say the actor bought the movie prop but instead went out and bought one like it after filming wrapped because he enjoyed driving it so much.

1966 Morris Mini Countryman Cooper S

This might seem like an odd choice for a man known as Dirty Harry, but it seems Eastwood had a weakness for tight-handling British cars as well as big American land yachts. This one somewhat split the difference since it was more like a racing spec European wagon.
