From Boing Boing Dot Net:

“This car (a 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine) sits in the lobby of the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, British Columbia. It once belonged to John Lennon, hence the paint job. But that’s not the only customization. Inside, apparently, there is a fold-out bed, a portable refrigerator, and a record player. There also used to be a TV. Bear in mind, all these changes were made in the mid-to-late 1960s, when the whole refrigerator-and-TV-in-a-car thing were much more impressive feats of technology.” On June 29th in 1985, the car sold for a record sum of $3,006,385, (£1,768,462) at a Sotheby’s auction in New York.

More Information, history and detailed photos of the paint job on this Rolls are available at This Link.

Dennis is on the Far Left

Dennis remembers: “I spent my 26th birthday (December 9th, 1972) at the opening of The Who’s Tommy at the Rainbow Theater in London. Neal (Smith, drummer) drove us there in the Rolls Royce he had just bought that day.”
