21 of Paul Walker’s cars and motorcycles are headed to auction

Published in blog.hemmings.com

Paul Walker’s role as Brian O’Conner in The Fast and the Furious movie series made him car celebrity royalty, but he was a gearhead off-camera as well. And now 21 vehicles from the late actor’s estate will go up for sale at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottdale Auction this coming January 11 – 19, giving us some insight into the kind of metal Walker found interesting. Many of the cars are compelling – and valuable – in their own right, independent of the celebrity connection.

The headline items in Walker’s collection are the five E36-generation BMW M3 Lightweight cars. Five. Only 115 production copies were made of this variant, which was 282 pounds lighter than the standard U.S.-market M3 according to Car and Driver. All were painted Alpine White with checkered-flag graphics in the M division’s red/blue/purple color theme. One of the cars listed on B-J’s docket is without the livery and rear wing. There’s also a pair of E30 M3s (a 1988 and a 1991) that will go up for bids.

A secondary theme in Walker’s collection is ’60s Chevy Muscle, with a 1963 Nova Wagon, 1964 Chevelle Wagon, and a 1967 Chevy II Nova. Also notable is a 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302S. Built on a special production line in Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly, the 302S was a turn-key race car based on the Boss 302 with a GT500 transmission, clutch, and muffler. Ford only build 50 per year for three model years, making this another rare pick.

Despite the import-heavy vibe of many of the Fast and Furious movies, there are only three Japanese cars in this list. Note that 1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R race car is an R32 version, not the R34 from the movies. The 2009 Nissan 370Z, however, was seen on screen in Fast Five. The third Japanese model going up for auction is a 2006 Toyota Tundra, one of three pickups in the list.
