Auction For Frank Sinatra’s Wedding Cars

Top service in wedding limo hire makes a lot of sense for couples to ensure that their out of town guests will arrive on time without any incident. However, transport for the couple is an important aspect that should complement their personalities as well as the wedding theme. High end transport though is no longer an issue with the existence of limousine service providers.

Many people rent limousines for their wedding transport but when it comes to celebrities, they do not rent; instead they buy one as a wedding present. For celebrities, owning a vintage car is one thing particularly if it has a celebrity pedigree. When speaking of celebrities, few have reached the status of the Old Blue Eyes. With his incredible husky voice and urbane appeal, Frank Sinatra has ruled the airwaves, silver screen and tabloids all over the world for decades.

When anything owned by Frank Sinatra is auctioned, it becomes a highly special event. What could be more special than the car Frank Sinatra received from this bride Barbara as a wedding a present and the car he gave to his bride on their wedding day?

Frank Sinatra’s car was a sleek 1976 Jaguar KJ-S Coupe that is equipped with a V-12 engine and every top of the range option that includes a Panasonic RM 710 Cockpit overhead the console car radio system with one of the earliest GE car phone. The car which is in a very appropriate British Racing green is only one of the few cars that have the capability to exceed 150 MPH.

All the outstanding documentation of the Jaguar has been retained to confirm Frank Sinatra’s ownership. Documentation also includes the window sticker, owner’s manual and the paperwork from the original sale including the car’s California license that was signed by the Old Blue Eyes himself. An added bonus is the original parking pass issued to the Sinatra’s by Palm Springs Airport.

On the other hand, Sinatra’s gift to wife Barbara was a 1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow I in Peacock Blue with a beige interior with piping in surf blue to match Sinatra’s eyes. Both of the cars have been well maintained and the highest bidder will be going home with a fantastic cache of Sinatra memorabilia.
