1993 GMC Typhoon
‘You’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky?’
This limited-production 1993 GMC Typhoon was formerly owned by actor and Academy Award-winning director Clint Eastwood, a man who has become an icon of masculinity in modern culture. From his early acting years on the show “Rawhide,” his role as the Man with No Name in Sergio Leone’s trilogy of Spaghetti Westerns — most notably “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” — and his portrayal of “Dirty Harry” Callahan, to directing the award-winning films “Million Dollar Baby” and “American Sniper,” Eastwood has left an indelible mark on the film industry.
One of just 210 Forest Green Metallic Typhoons produced in 1993, the factory-turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sport truck has been driven just 31,219 actual miles since new. Documented with a previous registration showing ownership by Clint Eastwood’s production company and boasting its original paint, leather interior and pristine undercarriage, it’s an irresistibly cool truck. As GMC said of the Typhoon, “Brace Yourself,” this is a sport truck with performance and pedigree.
