Movie: The Reivers (1969)
This was a different kind of role for the King of Cool. In The Reivers, McQueen plays an employee on a wealthy Mississippi family's ranch. He convinces the film's star, an 11-year old Lucius Priest, to steal his grandfather's Flyer so he could visit his lady in Memphis. McQueen's company, Solar Productions had a 1905 Winton Flyer built, because it was quite difficult to find one during the '60s. That probably had to do with the fact that each Winton was handmade and the company folded in 1927.
The car was crafted by custom car and pinstriping extraordinaire Kenny Howard, aka Von Dutch, from the ground up. Aside from what was under the hood, Howard made sure to stay faithful to the original. In place of Winton's 18hp engine, he installed a BMC inline-four, which can be found in Mini Coopers today. McQueen wanted to be able to navigate the country back roads to Memphis with more power. This baby was the real star of the film.
