1990?? Rolls-Royce Silver Spur II Owner: Michael Jackson - singer
Removed from the property he rented on 100 Monovale Dr. Beverly Hills the 10 September 2009 following his death.
It took a small army of movers to carefully remove Michael Jackson's stretched Rolls Royce Silver Spur from the garage of his Los Angeles home on Thursday afternoon. The limo, which could not be driven, created a problem for the crew of movers, who had to use a car jack multiple times and took over an hour to move the vehicle into the van. The limo, which is valued at approximately $150,000, will be up for bid by Julien's Auctions at the Beverley Hills Hilton
This limo has a Gold kneeling Spirit of Ecstasy, a gold crest on the door. This limousine has definitely being produced before 1996 and as the other one has also been upgraded with wraparound bumpers and new style alloy wheel. This one does not have the chrome wheel arch. Seeing that the RR sold previously in April had a very close number plate to this one, I would assume that this car is also a 1990 model.
3 X 19?? Rolls-Royce Phantom Owner: Michael Jackson - singer
Removed from his rented property on the following his death.
|As Michael Jackson's
friends and family prepare for his burial, the King of Pop's
three Rolls-Royces - allegedly intended as future wedding gifts for
his children - have been rolled into a storage facility in Los
Angeles. The way things were going with Jackson's finances before his
sudden death, the cars might have ended up on the auction block as the
previous ones, but
now, they're far more valuable as memorabilia.
Did you spot the crest above the rear wheel arch?

1990 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur II Owner: Michael Jackson - singer
Following the financial trouble of the most successful and well known singer on this planet, the car has been placed on auction via Julien’s Auctions. in April 2009
You can note that this limousine has been upgraded at some point as the wraparound bumpers as well as these alloy rims have not been produced before 1996. From 1996 these came as standard as well as the side mirrors fitted by the windows and not anymore on the door. You can also notice that the height of the roof is slightly higher on this limousine than the other Spur removed from his property in September 2009.
Rolls Royce limousine is seen on display in Beverly
Hills, California, April 13, 2009. Thousands of items owned by Jackson
will be auctioned off starting April 22, 2009 by Julien's Auction and
could raise between 10 and 20 million dollars.The jewel-encrusted glove
is the most iconic piece, it's estimate is between 10 and 15,000
dollars, but it could easily sell for something in the region of 100 to
200,000 dollars. The Beverly Hills exhibition of Jackson items going
under the hammer give a rare insight into the pop star's former life at
Neverland. Extraordinarily elaborate costumes, a customised Rolls Royce
limousine, antique furniture, lifesize statues of superheroes and Star
Wars villains, from Batman to Darth Vader, and a fully equipped
computer game arcade are among the lots.

Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow Owner:
Freddy Mercury singer of the group Queen
The car was auctioned on Ebay on the 07 Oct 2005 and reached £53.800. The car was not sold as the reserve was not met
|Here is the advert as it appeared:
Freddie Mercury's Rolls Royce Silver Shadow is being offered for auction by his family and represents an overwhelmingly rare opportunity for you to acquire an item of truly personal significance to him.
The car's last public appearance was at the London premiere of We Will Rock You, having transported the Bulsara family to the Dominion Theatre. It has been in occasional use and has travelled less than 5,000 miles since Freddie's sister (the vendor) acquired it.
The car comes with the Kleenex Mansize Tissues box that Freddie kept in the car and is complete with the remaining (unused!!) tissues.
We regret that viewings of the car cannot be undertaken, but original documents and a letter of authenticity from Freddie's sister will be available for inspection prior to completion. These will accompany the car to its new home.
The current V5 document lists Goose Productions as the previous registered keeper. This was one of Freddies companies.
Make: Rolls Royce
Model: Silver Shadow 1 6,750cc
Interior: Grey Leather with wood trim
MoT: June 06
Tax: Feb 06
1st Registration: 18 June 1974
Previous Keepers: 2
Features: Auto locking, Electric windows, Car phone (obsolete technology?), Radio cassette player.
The Car is in the same visual condition as it was when Freddie used it, but a modern alarm system (Cobra) has been added, and the vehicle has been converted to run on unleaded petrol.
The car is in good condition, as you would expect for a car of this age that has been looked after, but used. It has the odd small patch of rust, mainly around the wheel arches and on the rear corners of the chrome bumpers. It is in good running order, the engine bay and undersides are clean and the bodywork is polished. The interior is clean, no tears and the leather shows the patina of age.
The vendor reserves the right to remove the item from sale at any point.

1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Owner: Elvis Aaron Presley - singer
The car is currently in the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum
|Elvis' obsession began in 1955 when
he used his first major TV earnings to buy a Cadillac Fleetwood - the
famed 'Pink Cadillac'. A firm favourite of his mother, Elvis vowed it
would be the one car he would always keep. The following year, he added
Cadillac Eldorado and Continental Mark 2 to his growing stable.
Strangely though, given his astronomic wealth, Elvis had a penchant for
buying second hand. When his Silver Cloud rolled up to Graceland's
gates, it had already accommodated three owners; actor Michael Landon
and country music stars, Charlie Rich and Charlie McClain.

1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Owner: John Lennon - Singer
CHASSIS 5VD73 - (click on the pictures for larger version)
||The Phantom V was then delivered to John Lennon
on June 3, 1965 with the license plate number being FJB111C. A
guarantee was issued to John Lennon on 10 June 1965. The car measured
19 feet long and weighed three tons.
On December 21, 1965, John ordered a Sterno Radio Telephone and the number WEYBRIDGE 46676 assigned to it.
In 1966, the car had the rear seat modified to convert to a double bed. A custom interior/exterior sound system was installed along with a "loud hailer." Other features that John Lennon had installed at this time were: Sony television; telephone and a portable refrigerator. On January 7, the car went in for a mileage check and the odometer had recorded 6,673 miles and on March 28, that same year, the car clocked in at 11,181 miles. Later, on February 4, in 1967, the odometer would record 29,283 miles clocked on the Rolls-Royce. Interestingly enough, John had his chauffeur and car sent over to Spain in 1966, while he was filming "How I Won the War". It was reported that his Rolls-Royce Phantom V was painted with a matt black overall, which included the radiator and chrome trim.
But John eventually became restless with the "matt black overall" on the car and so in April of 1967, he took it upon himself to visit J.P. Fallon Limited, a coachworks company located in Chertsey, Surrey. He had in mind the possibility of having his car painted "psychedelic". After discussing the idea, J.P. Fallon Limited commissioned "The Fool" -- a Dutch team of gypsy artists, to do the work. They designed and painted a pattern of scroll and flowers on the Phantom V. The cost for having the work done came in at £2,000
John’s newly painted psychedelic car drew some public outrage when a old woman, in London’s downtown, attacked the car using her umbrella and yelling: "You swine, you swine! How dare you do this to a Rolls-Royce." Obviously, the Rolls-Royce is passionately regarded in England as one of the many symbols of British dignity! The Beatles used the Rolls exclusively in their heyday from 1966 to 1969.
In 1970, John Lennon and Yoko Ono had the Phantom V shipped to the United States. The car was loaned out to several rock stars such as the Rolling Stones, the Moody Blues, and Bob Dylan. When the car was available, the Lennon’s seldom used it and so consideration was given to sell it to an American buyer -- but a deal never materialized. As a result, the car was put into storage in New York City.
Then in December, 1977, John and Yoko had serious problems with the United States Internal Revenue. The couple arranged to have a deal worked out where they would donate the car to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City, a part of the Smithsonian Institute, for a $225,000 tax credit.
From October 3, 1978 to January 7, 1979, the car was put on public display at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and then returned to storage at Silver Hill, Maryland. There, the car would remain in storage and kept from public viewing for a while. The reason for this was because the museum could not afford the insurance coverage for public viewing on a full-time basis.
On June 29, 1985, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum decided to auction the car off through Sotheby’s. Before the auction began, The Rolls-Royce Phantom V was estimated by Sotheby's to fetch between $200,000 to $300,000 (U.S.). When the car was sold, it pulled in a surprising $2,299,000 (U.S.) and was purchased by Mr. Jim Pattison’s Ripley International Inc., of South Carolina for exhibition at Ripley’s "Believe It Or Not" museum. The purchase of the Phantom V through Sotheby’s resulted it being listed as the most expensive car in the world and installed with the South Carolina license plates LENNON.
The Phantom V was then loaned to Expo ‘86 in Vancouver (Chairman: Mr. Jim Pattison) for exhibition. The American title was transferred from Ripley International Inc. to Jim Pattison Industries Ltd., in Canada (Mr. Jim Pattison is a well-known British Columbia business man.)

Rolls-Royce Phantom Owner: Simon Cowell - Music Producer
He ordered a Maybach. He then took a ribbing from Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear. He was in Hollywood, and his Bentley needed a service — they gave him a Phantom as courtesy car, and he loved it. He telephoned Rolls-Royce and found the Beverly Hills dealer had three in stock, including one with his preferred 'piano black' paint and triple black interior — black leather, black carpets and black lacquered wood dashboard. An hour later his Maybach order was cancelled, and he had ordered a second similar Phantom for London. He has a 100EX convertible on order for American delivery. When Cowell was Punk'd Ashton Kutcher pretended to have the car stolen.
