A classic Ford Thunderbird car owned by late Clash frontman Joe Strummer has emerged for sale for a mystery sum.<br />
<br />
The rock legend bought the plush motor in 1987, splashing out just 4,200 dollars for it when he moved to the USA in the wake of the band's break-up.<br />
<br />
A huge fan of American cars, Strummer - the genius behind The Clash's biggest hits such as Rock the Casbah, London Calling and Should I Stay of Should I Go - drove the 1963 Thunderbird right up until his untimely death in 2002.<br />
<br />
Following Strummer's sudden death aged 50 from undiagnosed heart problems the car was passed to his publicist.<br />
<br />
The car, which has done 420 miles on its current engine, is now being sold on eBay by the California car dealers Beverly Hills Car Club.
