Springsteen’s Cars

1. 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible

In 1975, Bruce Springsteen released his third studio album, Born To Run, which brought him fame far beyond the Jersey Shore. Until this point, the then 26-year-old had never had his wheels. He finally spent a modest $2,000 on an open-top 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in baby blue. It was powered by a fuel-injected 4.6 liter V8 producing 283bhp, and this model cemented itself in American iconography further when it was used in the 1973 movie American Graffiti, driven by Harrison Ford.

2. 1960 Chevrolet Corvette C1 Convertible

A car so important to Bruce, he used a photo of it on the cover of his 2016 autobiography and still owns it. The C1 Corvette arrived on the Springsteen driveway in 1977, a sign that his albums were going platinum. He’d long lusted after this car and bought it from the attendant of the local ice cream stand. Reviews of the ’Vette were mixed when it debuted in 1953, and sales were initially lackluster.

3. 1963 Chevrolet Impala Convertible

R&B singer Gary U.S. Bonds gave Bruce a classic Impala as a thank-you gift after Springsteen wrote him his 1981 comeback hit, “This Little Girl”. Named after the graceful African antelope, the ’63 Impala had an astonishing 409 bhp 409-cubic-inch engine after which The Beach Boys made a record.

4. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Springsteen’s black Stingray, aka the C2, was a big step forward on the original C1. The second-generation car, built in St Louis between 1963 and ’67, benefitted from the independent rear suspension, a rear transaxle, and four-wheel disc brakes. The styling is purposeful and muscular, with a long bonnet and, on the coupe, a split-window fastback inspired by the pre-war Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic. The quad headlights are pop-up.

5. 1969 Ford XL Convertible

Springsteen’s home has always been New Jersey, but in the 1990s he changed his principal address to the Hollywood Hills and got a 1969 Ford XL land barge “with a white ragtop, sea green and Cadillac long” for commuting the 2,800 largely arrow-straight miles between the coasts.

6. 1970 Ford F100 Pick-Up Truck

“I have a garage full of cars that I’ve collected over the years,” says Springsteen. “They’re not collector’s pieces; they’re what I call drivers. A small collection of older American vehicles that I get in and drive once in a while.” As the bard of blue-collar America, Springsteen could hardly not have a pick-up in that garage, and the 1970 Ford F100 is a fine choice.

7. 1982 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro

This pony car owed nothing to previous generations, with a raked windshield, hatchback body style, three-piece rear spoiler, and lower body valances. Very ’80s. The 5.0 V8 produced a lazy 145bhp, but it looked quick even if it wasn’t. “Now the neighbors come from near and far, as we pull up in our brand new used car. I wish he’d just hit the gas and let out a cry, and tell ’em they can all kiss our asses goodbye.” With only 145 horses, you’d struggle to get the tires to squeal.

8. 2009 Range Rover L322

Springsteen bought his first guitar immediately after seeing The Beatles’ legendary performance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. His appreciation of English imports extends to his garage, for he owns a couple of vintage Triumph motorcycles and a new Norton 961 Commando, but just one European car, which is a characteristically no-nonsense Range Rover L322.

9. Jeep Cherokee

It was only when he married his E Street bandmate Patti Scialfa in 1991 and had their three kids that Bruce finally bought something sensible. The rocking couple suffered the indignity of owning a minivan in the mid-90s, but since then their practical mainstay has been a series of Jeep Cherokees, which they keep on their horse ranch in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
