Chrysler Le Baron Town and Country Turbo Station Wagon For Sale (1985)
|Chrysler Le Baron Town and Country Turbo Station Wagon 'Woody' Ex Frank Sinatra|
Purchased new in 1985 and registered to Frank Sinatra for some six years, it is said that this high specification Chrysler Le Baron Station Wagon with woody style coachwork was used by Frank for trips 'incognito'. It is also thought to be the last car that Frank Sinatra drove before giving up driving in the 90's. With Woody station wagons dating back to the 40's, this style of car is said to have been one of Frank's favorites.
Supplied with the vehicle are copies of the certificate of title with Sinatra's signature, also stating Frank Sinatra's name along with 'c/o Nathan Golden', Franks chauffeur with the address of 70855 Sinatra Drive, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270. Other documentation includes a copy of the warranty, again stating Franks name and address of 9601 Wilshire Boulevard.
4 cylinder turbo engine, making the car very practical & economical.
This car is in very good condition all round and runs very well with all of the 'wood' panels in good order and the tan interior in fine shape and unmarked paintwork. The car was bought with every available extra, including:
Two-tone leather trim
Electric windows, mirrors & seats
Stainless Roof Rack
Very heavy tinted/security glass
Knowing that Frank Sinatra purchased this very car himself and indeed drove it around the streets and boulevards of Beverley Hills during his six years of ownership, this 'woody' presents itself as a unique opportunity to purchase personal memorabilia from one of the biggest stars of the 20th century that would be the centre of attention of any collection or museum. Well documented past sales of Frank Sinatra owned cars include a 1989 Jaguar XJS fixed head coupe, sold for £113,600 in 1998 and a 1956 Ford Thunderbird at the same time sold for £106,500. This gives an idea of the incredible value that this car represents. This is a genuine investment!
