No photos of the interior, but he's got the interior pretty churched up, so I'd imagine the interior follows suit.

“I did some driving on ‘Bullitt’, yeah. But we had problems with the script. The script calls for Frank Bullitt to drive a Mercedes convertible. You know, he’s an educated man, he’s got a career, he’s devil-may-care about things, so of course he’s going to drive something like that. Well, somehow this was too tall of an order for the stunt coordinators, so they go to the junkyard or somewhere and come back with this clapped-out Mustang. ‘This looks,’ I said, ‘like something a pervert would drive.’ So anyway. Then these geniuses say that the car chase will be between a Mustang and a Charger. ‘Great,’ I said. ‘By all means, let’s have the two worst cars in San Francisco for this. Because I assume you couldn’t find two rusted-out Beetles.’ That’s why I look disgusted during that scene. That’s not acting. That’s the real me. Disgusted. And as you know, the scene was garbage. Watching the dailies, I said, ‘How many hubcaps do these cars have?’ Nobody could give me an answer. Apparently they kept putting the hubcaps back on. Well that’s as bad as wearing a lizard suit and humping a rubber rock in prime time. When you’re a bad guy, being chased by a good guy, you don’t have time to put the hubcaps back on. It’s a critical error that throws the whole film into question. We had other problems. If you watch this movie—we are gonna put it on laserdisc, seventy bucks and you can watch it with all your friends, don’t have to pay for each one, it’s basically stealing—you can see that all of Robert Vaughn’s pants are cut too short. All of them. Because wardrobe thought it was Robert Wagner in the movie. Who is shorter. I doubt you know that. Just say you don’t know. Don’t be a phony. I hate phonies.” — Steve McQueen, 1980

Last pic: Cologne. Or Koln. Notice the first letter on both plates. Probably both cars originated at the local Ford works, 40 years apart. Our Viking River Cruise boat stopped under that bridge. A lot of WWII history there. The cathedral is spectacular, but I liked the koelsch bars best.

Yeah, McQueen was rather brusque and difficult by all accounts. He had a pretty awful upbringing, which I'm sure contributed. Also, by the time he was giving that interviews he had terminal mesothelioma, which probably makes you pretty irritable and not want to waste a lot of time. McQueen did have an unusual reputation for demanding free items in bulk from studios when agreeing to do a film, such as electric razors, jeans and other items, and no one could figure it out at first, until it was later discovered that he was donating them to a boys reformatory school where he'd spent a lot of time when he was younger.

I found more of the interview and that Steve guy was quite a jerk

 

I'm not sure that is actually real.

He was a lot less cool to me after watching Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans documentary. He just about bankrupted his own production company goofing off filming race cars with no script or plan so the final product everyone loves was really put together by another director.

Since Le Mans is this weekend, here's to the weird ones: Dome Zero
